Analyst Review

Multi-cloud involves the use of two or more cloud deployments from different vendors. It can be used for any type of cloud deployment such as software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Single cloud deployments give high power to the provider, can lead to vendor lock-in, and reduces the bargaining power of a buyer. However, with multi-cloud deployments buyers have a choice to allocate the resources and manage them accordingly. Emergence of cloud service brokerage further boosts the deployments of multiple clouds among organizations. Multi-cloud prevents data loss or downtime due to localized component failure on cloud, avoid vendor lock-in, and price-sensitivity among cloud users are the major growth driving factors in multi-cloud market. However, the infrastructure management of a multi-cloud system can be complex and need an efficient management system which leads to growing adoption of multi-cloud management software and services among IT buyers.
