The Move to Multiple Cloud Platforms

Dependence on multiple cloud platforms is becoming standard for many organizations. Each cloud platform offers a unique set of capabilities and having the ability to leverage multiple platforms is very advantageous for organizations who strive to be as agile and cost effective as possible.

While this approach is very powerful, it doesn’t come without complexity. When considering a multi-cloud architecture, it is critical to have a foundation that serves as the framework for all design, integration, and operational decisions.
