Being competitive with the Multi-Cloud
We combine several cloud models for you
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.
Multi-cloud strategies are becoming increasingly important. This is where several cloud platforms, e.g. a private cloud and a public cloud, such as AWS or Google Cloud, are used in parallel. Multi-cloud scenarios are the ideal basis for competitiveness and agile IT operations, since they cleverly combine the advantages of different platforms.
Our multi-cloud services
- 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 and management of the cloud resources
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

Multi-cloud vs. hybrid cloud
The terms ‘multi-cloud’ and ‘hybrid cloud’ are often used synonymously. Both models provide a solution to the challenge of mapping different workloads within the company on the best possible infrastructure.
The difference, however, is that the resources for a multi-cloud are located with different providers and are not integrated into the same networks. This in turn means that central management is not possible.
A hybrid cloud is when dedicated resources are combined with a public or private cloud. This allows for already existing infrastructures to be flexibly supplemented with cloud resources, which can then be used, e.g. as a development or test environment, as well as for load overflow.
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.
Containers in the multi-cloud
Containers make developments easy to move across multiple platforms, regardless of the underlying infrastructure and applications. This is also referred to as workload portability. A multi-cloud setup is therefore a useful addition when using container technologies.
For example, you can increase the availability of applications by rolling them out using containers in multiple cloud platforms. Even a quick change from one cloud to another is possible, e.g. when some prices or features change.
