Planning for a Multi-Cloud Future

Think Tank - 10:05 am - 10:30 am

The promise of the cloud is almost beyond compare â?" infinite computing resources, unmatched reliability and uptime, instantaneous service availability, simplistic self-service and provisioning, and the low-low prices of a buy-by-the-drink model. These are the reasons behind the rush to the cloud that we are currently experiencing. However, the wholesale adoption does bring a downside as more and more capability is moved to the cloud. Also, more and more cloud providers are utilized since, and for the most part, each provider offers only a limited suite of services. The multi-cloud environment creates a new set of challenges that IT leaders need to overcome such as resiliency, interoperability/integration, and security and compliance through careful planning and the lessons learned from building complex on premise distributed systems.


  1. As enterprises move to the cloud, multi-cloud environments will increasingly become the norm, not the exception. 
  2. Consistent planning and thoughtful architecture will be essential to efficient and effective cloud deployments.
