Multicloud entails the use of two or more cloud services from different cloud providers in a single heterogeneous architecture. It enables consistent and unified management of the workflow and applications across the clouds.
A multicloud environment aims to eliminate the reliance on any single cloud provider and enables organisations to deliver application services across multiple private and public clouds containing any combination of multiple cloud vendors, multiple cloud accounts, multiple cloud availability zones, or multiple cloud regions.
Multicloud is similar to hybrid cloud which is a combination of public and private clouds. Multicloud, though, implies more than one public cloud provider service and need not include a private cloud component at all.
Benefits of Multicloud
Enterprises adopt a multicloud strategy so as not to ‘keep all their eggs in a single basket’, for compliance or regulatory requirements, for geographic separation, for business resilience and continuity or to take advantage of specific features available with a particular cloud service provider.
Multicloud helps organisations to distribute computing resources and minimize the risk of downtime or any data loss.
