Internet of Things. VDI. AI. Computer Vision. There are many buzzwords in the world of IT, and one that you surely have heard of by now is Multicloud.
The Cloud trend has been going on for a while now, its main goal being the decentralization of storage and computer power to data centers available over the internet – allowing a lot of improvements, from the ability to share resources, achieving coherence and economies of scale, to the possibly of minimizing upfront costs, running and deploying apps faster, and better management.
But if the cloud itself is relatively straightforward, the way to actually implement it in enterprises is less clear. Up to recently, everything from storage to servers was on-premises, most commonly in a server room at the company’s HQ. Then the trend went to putting everything in the (public) cloud, with less control over resources but with a way simpler management approach.
Lately, the term Hybrid Cloud has been used to describe the combination of private (on-premises) and public cloud to better adapt to the workloads of companies, the whole thing managed by orchestration tools. It is usually the go-to, as it can be scaled and offers more flexibility for the majority of customers. Multicloud, however, could be defined more as a strategy than a service. It’s essentially the use of Hybrid Cloud through multiple providers to meet different requirements.
With all its advantages, the multicloud will undoubtedly add some management complexity. It is accepted that no MSP has built a completely transparent, fully integrated cloud solution, so unifying all solutions from all different providers can sometime prove difficult. That being said, more and more orchestration tools are adapting to the increase of multicloud environments, making this developing market more and more easy to manage.
