Organizations today are adopting cloud-based applications, platforms, and services to achieve greater elasticity and faster delivery times in today’s app-driven world.
As the name suggests, adopting a multi-cloud strategy means using multiple cloud services from different providers, with workloads spread out across cloud environments. While most businesses require rapid and flexible access to computing, storage, and networking resources, not all enterprises are pursuing multi-cloud for the same reasons.
Of course, not every team, business function, or application workload will have similar requirements in regards to performance, privacy, security, or geographic reach for its cloud environments. Whatever the impetus, companies must build a culture that puts data front and center in a world where every company is becoming a data company. This leads us to our main points: understanding key data challenges and getting your data ready for multi-cloud environments.
