From Hybrid Cloud toward Multicloud, the world is accelerated as more and more cloud migration cases from Next Normal. It is not about hybrid cloud vs multicloud that matters, it is which one is more robust and future proof that matters.
We are not told Multicloud is better than Hybrid Cloud, it is more about the stage your company encounters during the cloud migration. In the very beginning, for sure to adopt a hybrid of private and public cloud, and as the enterprise becomes more comfortable with cloud computing, the next stage will be to adopt multicloud, to combine the strengths of multiple cloud computing and storage services in a single heterogeneous architecture from various cloud computing providers.
The enterprise IT world has evolved at a fast pace since the Internet existed and rising in 1990. Then we have the Intel x84 based virtualization technology invented, to make it possible to virtualize computer systems and run in a virtualized environment, then it continues to evolve to include virtualized network, storage, datacenter and application. Cloud computing rising thereafter to provide private, public and hybrid cloud options, for the enterprise customer for cloud migration.
The world is now moving toward native cloud application, micro services, container powered, since it offers a much smaller footprint when compared with virtual machines. We have the DevSecOps (or known as secure DevOps) to simplify and help automated the software development lifecycle from provision to testing and production maintenance.
Enterprise adopt multicloud approach is not surprising everyone, since it make business sense to distribution of cloud assets, software, applications, etc. across several cloud-hosting environments by different services provider to prevent for vendor locked-in, diversified risk for business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR), or balancing the resources demand and combine the strengths from the various cloud computing service providers.
Modern enterprise regardless of size, you are not able to avoid from digitalization, and that from physical, to virtual and then cloud. No one will underestimate the Internet 2.0, aka cloud computing transformation, this is why most of the enterprise top priority project for sure one of it is digital transformation, and cloud migration strategy will be required to be addressed in some form. The COVID-19 pandemic and the result of the next normal, we can see how the whole world adopts the cloud, to make remote-to-work possible for a large population on a globe basis. Some are physical to virtualization and cloud migration, and others are evolution and revolution transformation of the enterprise business/technology and how they use it to do something in such a way, they can not dream that it can be done, via cloud computing for new business models. Are you at this point of time, in undertaking digital transformation project, if are not not yet, it is better to speed up the process, before you are unpace by your competitors?
