What Is Multi-Cloud Management?
date_range - 9 months ago

The public cloud is a cloud service offered by a vendor to multiple clients. When a company chooses to use various public clouds to run different services, this is called a multi-cloud strategy.

Multi-cloud management represents the techniques and tools used to secure and optimize a multi-cloud deployment. Multi-cloud management is challenging because every cloud provider has different features and tools for managing their cloud. Additionally, all the clouds must be connected and secured.

A multi-cloud shouldn’t be confused with a hybrid cloud. A hybrid cloud also involves multiple clouds, but the term refers to a combination of two types of infrastructure: public cloud, private cloud, and/or on-premises. A multi-cloud, on the other hand, includes multiple public clouds, from different providers. Multi-cloud can be part of a hybrid cloud, but it is also possible to have a multi-cloud without a hybrid cloud.

Benefits of Multi-cloud Management

Even though managing a multi-cloud environment is very complex, a quality multi-cloud management platform offers numerous benefits:

  • Simplified management: with a good management platform, IT teams can manage applications and workloads more effectively across clouds.
  • Proactive security: with a managed approach, IT teams can proactively deal with security issues. Also, various multi-cloud management platforms provide security monitoring and automation.
  • Cost tracking: with multi-cloud management it’s easy to keep track of costs and usage, and optimize cost management.
  • Better visibility: a good multi-cloud management solution helps with visibility, workload monitoring, and shows what is running and where.
  • Various capabilities: finding all the features a company needs in a single cloud provider can be difficult; a multi-cloud system provides organizations with multiple options.

Multi-cloud Management Tools

Cloud management tools allow companies to manage their multi-cloud resources. These tools can be deployed on-premises or as a SaaS product, and serve multiple purposes like security, analytics, resource management, and compliance. When choosing a multi-cloud management tool, it’s important to remember a few things.

  1. Tools that fall under the same category will operate in different ways. For example, Cloud Service Brokers (CSBs) and Cloud Management Platforms (CMPs) carry out management and operations differently.
  2. Cloud management tools are susceptible to security breaches. It is important to consider your security needs well before choosing a tool for your organization.
  3. Introducing new tools can create problems regarding performance, operating expenses, and the capacity to deal with services from different public cloud providers.

While these issues are serious, they can be avoided by carefully defining and designing the multi-cloud deployment strategy. After selecting the right management tool, your organizational efficiency will increase significantly.
