Being competitive with the Multi-Cloud
The experts and analysts agree: Existing IT infrastructures have to be scrutinised in the development of a digital company. The aim of digitisation is to manage customer requests more quickly and effectively. However, this requires an agile IT landscape, which scales quickly and helps roll out new applications as fast as possible.
In this context, hybrids and multi-cloud strategies are becoming increasingly important. Here, it makes sense to expand existing resources to cloud resources. Multi-cloud scenarios are the ideal basis for competitiveness and agile IT operations, since they cleverly combine the advantages of different platforms.
Distribution of public cloud workloads from 2015 to 2020
Although many companies will rely purely on public or private cloud deployments in the future, hybrid and multi-cloud architectures of two or more cloud stacks will become a reality. This requires clear strategies with regards to integrating, migrating and orchestrating platforms. Crisp Research „Cloud Orchestration Excellence“ Study, September 2018
Cloud orchestration requires know-how
A multi-cloud environment thrives on its careful planning and central management of different cloud resources. We are happy to support you in your multi-cloud strategy. It does not matter whether you are already using a range of cloud solutions at your company or are just getting started.
Our multi-cloud services cover:
- Analysis of the current infrastructure
- Multi-cloud concept customised precisely to the needs of each client
- Support in the setup of cloud solutions
- Help with migration (lift-and-shift or re-platforming)
- Operation/management of cloud resources
- Regular optimisation with regard to customer demands as well as new cloud features
Cloud Orchestration Excellence Study
The study performed by Crisp Research in collaboration with PlusServer first looks into the level of cloud maturity at the company. Based on these results, it analyses future architectures and sourcing plans and provides recommendations for a multi-cloud strategy.
What is a Multi-Cloud?
Multi-Cloud means the use of several cloud types in parallel. This can refer to different platforms such as VMware, OpenStack, etc., or several providers. Different models such as Public and Private Clouds – whether hosted or as a Managed Cloud – can nevertheless also be combined into a Multi-Cloud environment.
Primarily, three points are characteristic for Multi-Cloud environments:
- Their architectures contain at least one public-cloud system
- They integrate Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud solutions in any combination
- They are distributed across different providers
Together with the customer, PlusServer develops a tailor-made solution that can take several cloud models into account.
The modular solution for different workloads
Just like the Hybrid Cloud, the Multi-Cloud offers the opportunity to use the advantages of different cloud models. The whitepaper explains the basics of the Multi-Cloud and differentiates it from other cloud types.Download whitepaper for free [208.43 KB]
Which clouds to choose?
The intended application is always decisive when it comes to selecting the respective cloud solution within a Multi-Cloud. A constant workload, for example, tends to be mapped to a Private Cloud, while flexible and rapidly scalable resources are found in a Public Cloud. The advantage of a Multi-Cloud is therefore that it provides optimal resources for different tasks.
Who needs a Multi-Cloud?
- are looking for an economical and flexible cloud solution
- would like to be independent of model, platform or provider
- would like to implement (geo-)redundancies at different locations
