Working with Multiple Clouds

Multiple cloud or multicloud is a system used by organizations where more than one cloud vendor is used. One of the most widely cited benefits is avoiding vendor lock-in. This moves the power of leverage from the vendor to the company. When workloads are designed for multiple providers upfront, developers can create applications that work across multiple providers. This approach in theory makes it much easier to move between cloud providers for the multitude of reasons a company might change course.

Adoption to the cloud at this point is very well established, but IT departments still must ask what, how much and from who? Before going on it’s worth mentioning the difference between multicloud and hybrid cloud. Hybrid is the combination of a private and public cloud infrastructure that uses tools to deploy workloads and manage the balance between the two. Multicloud has a more strategic approach from a business and IT management perspective. Multicloud generally involves cloud-native applications built from containers that span different vendors.


Clouds Have Lots of Benefits but They Can Come at Unexpected Costs

The rise of cloud computing has without a doubt changed the way that we deploy software and store data for our businesses, and certainly for the best. Generally, cloud computing offers advantages compared to on-premise storage and infrastructure. Some of the advantages include scalability, fast deployment of applications and others. Despite the merits, it does not mean that adopting the cloud option solves all your problems and situations. Before jumping your business to the cloud computing bandwagon by moving your software and information assets, it is only right that you do a thorough assessment to ascertain whether the cloud is the best alternative for your data or not. It is also important that you find out whether it suits all of your workloads.


The Complications of Regulatory Compliance in the Cloud

Migrating a portion of your IT systems or infrastructure to the cloud can provide many financial and operational benefits to your organization. These advantages are often accompanied by an increase in the complexity of your computing environment. Ensuring data security and regulatory compliance is an aspect of your enterprise’s responsibilities which may be complicated by your move to a cloud provider.


Are Your Cloud Applications Really Portable?

The ability to move between cloud providers can be key to harnessing the cloud’s power for your organization. As a provider’s offerings and your business needs evolve, there may be compelling reasons which could cause you to consider moving your hosted applications. Envision a merger or takeover where your goal is to get all of the cloud services consolidated with a single provider. It’s a worthy objective, but is it realistic to believe that cloud instances can be truly portable?


The Benefits of a Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

The cloud has made advanced computing capabilities available to businesses of any size. Companies no longer need to supply their own computing platforms as they can employ the extensive resources of their chosen cloud provider. The range of cloud offerings allows small organizations to compete with their larger rivals on a more evenly constructed playing field. The cloud enables any enterprise to take advantage of techniques that may have previously been beyond the scope of their capabilities or budgets.


Moving Cloud Computing From Green to Greener

Microsoft is a great example of a company that has committed to green practices and being eco-friendly. They have reduced their carbon emissions by 10 metric tons and purchased new wind and solar energy. In addition to these initiatives, they have also successfully deployed environmentally friendly underwater data centers. More recently, they have announced plans to expand their cloud computing operations in Sweden.


What Cloud Sprawl Is and How To Control It

Cloud Computing’s Use of Cryptography and Encryption

Public cloud providers are required to securely handle and protect their customer’s data. Two related concepts employed to ensure this data security are cryptography and encryption. Various implementations of these concepts have been used throughout the history of computing. Their use is critical in efforts to protect an enterprise’s sensitive data in a public cloud environment.


Cloud Computing’s Impact on Sports

Cloud computing has been responsible for a number of significant changes to the world of sports. From the way elite athletes train to the fan’s experience in new stadiums, the cloud has been incorporated into improving the way sports are performed and consumed.
