So, What exactly is a Multi-Cloud

I’ve written a bunch about Hybrid Clouds – an increasingly popular phenomenon, as more organizations look to take advantage of the benefits of public cloud scenarios.  Recently, I came across another term – Multi-Cloud, basically an approach to exploring Hybrid Cloud scenarios, using multiple disparate cloud services.

For example, your enterprise invests in expanding a cloud infrastructure. You’ve moved from bare-metal servers to virtualization-based workloads, and now you’re evaluating public cloud options—not for everything, but to support a specific customer-facing application with highly variable use rates.

After some research, you find the public cloud provider that has the right blend of service-level agreements (SLAs), security protocols, and uptime to host your custom application. You’re happy with your choice.

But eventually, customers start asking for features that are only available through a different vendor’s proprietary app. Integrating these features into your custom app requires that you not only purchase the vendor’s app, but also host the app in that vendor’s proprietary public cloud—a solution that allows both apps to scale with demand.

You now have a Multi-Cloud…..
