Why Multi-Cloud is Imperative to Any Modern Data Strategy
Organizations are increasingly seeking technologies that simplify the deployment of their application workloads in a multi-cloud design. Whether to optimize the costs of running and managing private cloud or to enable developer velocity to efficiently build the modern, intelligent applications of tomorrow, the benefits of multi-cloud offerings are an attractive proposition for enterprises.
Based on a global survey conducted by Forrester, 86% of enterprises have adopted a multi-cloud strategy due to shifting business priorities.
In this whitepaper you will find the top four reasons to consider a multi-cloud strategy and deployment:
- Freedom of choice - Multi-cloud provides organizations flexibility and freedom of choice to host their applications and data anywhere, on any device and on any cloud at global scale.
- No single cloud provider lock-in - 73% of the enterprises consider multi-cloud to avoid single cloud vendor lock-in. It can be very arduous for organizations to switch to another cloud provider when locked in to one, and; any such migration becomes time-consuming, technically difficult, and extremely expensive
- Higher return on investment (ROI) - 65% of the enterprises consider competitive pricing as a compelling reason to make a strategic shift to multi-cloud.
- Reduced downtime - Even though public cloud providers typically offer availability SLA of up to three 9s, it is critical that businesses distribute core workloads across multi-cloud infrastructure to reduce the possibility of downtime.
