In the face of ceaseless technological adjustments and economic uncertainties, enterprises across industries must acknowledge that cloud will mount the future. The derived agility and flexibility from the adoption of cloud have impacted every business directly or indirectly to develop applications and deliver services. While studies suggest a rise in the adoption of cloud, they also question the possibility of a cloud-only future.
It is easy to guess that enterprises that adopt cloud computing commonly stick to one cloud provider. However, several studies suggest that a large number of companies have implemented a multicloud strategy to meet their challenging business needs. This means that they have taken more than one cloud service from different providers.
The benefits gained from multicloud configurations are laudable and have given rise to the hybrid multicloud approach. A hybrid cloud is a model where enterprises embrace a mix of public cloud and on-premise and deploy services from two or more cloud providers, which is essentially what a multicloud approach is. Various use cases of hybrid cloud service strongly uphold the impetus behind its deployment and potential impact on the cloud environment. With more number of cloud providers supporting hybrid multicloud environments, there will be a rise of hybrid cloud users in the space. The larger motive of adopting hybrid multicloud is to enable enterprises to move from on-premise to cloud-native computing.
