Most organizations which adopted a Cloud-first strategy a few years ago did so initially to lower Capex/Opex and scale with ease. However, the focus of cloud migration has gradually shifted to digital transformation in most of these organizations now. This, in turn, has changed the way they move to cloud in a world of multi-cloud reality in which diverse cloud providers coexist to cater to different requirements. We offer a holistic solution to orchestrate, manage and monitor multiple cloud environments to ease the challenges of such an important journey for organizations.
Challenges of Multi-cloud
Complexity: Cloud providers employ different technologies, sport different interfaces, provide a variety of services, and employ a multitude of terminologies.
Reduced Efficiency: Multiple environments working in silos reduce efficiency and put organizational capabilities under stress.
Scale and Performance: Moving to Cloud makes firms dependent on the service providers causing an inherent lack of control that can turn into real-time monitoring issues.
Lack of Skills: Each Cloud requires a special set of skills to operate and manage it.
Associated Costs: Repetitive administrative tasks for solution architects prove expensive for support organizations.
Compliance: Every provider has a different set of tools to design and manage security and compliance.
