Cloud computing got its start promising greatly reduced complexity for enterprises mired in the spaghetti architectures of multiplatform and multi-function on-premises systems. Lately, the opposite is happening, as cloud environments have become even more complex.
These days, just about every cloud-based infrastructure relies on more than a single cloud provider. A multi-cloud approach is the de facto standard among organizations, according to Flexera’s 2022 State of the Cloud Report. Eighty-nine percent of respondents reported having a multi-cloud strategy, and 80% are taking a hybrid approach by combining the use of both public and private clouds.
