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, Azure Stack, 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
Example of a Multi-Cloud

Together with the customer, PlusServer develops a tailor-made solution that can take several cloud models into account.

Difference between Multi and Hybrid Clouds


The technological approach of the Multi-Cloud is similar to that of the Hybrid Cloud. In both cases, different cloud technologies are combined to take advantage of one cloud without sacrificing the advantages of the others.

Example of a Multi-Cloud as opposed to a Hybrid Cloud

With a Multi-Cloud solution, however, the resources are available from different providers and are not centrally managed.

Hybrid Cloud

A Hybrid Cloud solution provides the best infrastructure for every workload. Either Private and Public Cloud resources or a combination with dedicated resources are used in the process.

Example of a Hybrid Cloud as opposed to a Multi-Cloud

Because all resources are integrated into the same networks, they can interact seamlessly.


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?

Companies that...

  • 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
