In recent years, storing data on the cloud has emerged as the best way to ensure privacy and security. Unlike traditional systems, the cloud is much more difficult to hack into, automatically creates backup of files to ensure there is no loss in information and enables remote access to authorized users no matter where they are located. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has made it even more crucial to work out of the cloud as the entire workforce is now working remotely. Many companies in India had already migrated some of their functions to the cloud, but the pandemic has forced them to move their operations in their entirety to a cloud-based system.
But while almost every company has acknowledged the advantages of moving to the cloud, it can be challenging to find the provider that meets all of their requirements. This is why adopting a multi-cloud strategy can be the best approach.
What is a multi-cloud approach?
As the name suggests, a multi-cloud strategy involves utilizing multiple cloud providers. Companies have many varied needs which a single provider might not be able to provide. Because of this, choosing various providers that can each fulfill a specific part of your requirements and combining them to implement a cohesive cloud infrastructure is the best way forward.
Multi-cloud management is often confused with a hybrid-cloud approach, but there are several important distinctions between the two. In a hybrid cloud infrastructure, a business combines public and private cloud systems so that they can keep certain functions of their business under tighter security while still benefiting from the efficiency that a public cloud offers.
