Multi-cloud is in-game now. You believe it or not almost like all industry is looking for a multi-cloud approach for their cloud migration. This is because of multiple reasons. Primarily the licensing, regional compliance, workload suitability for a particular cloud provider.
For example in a typical organization application workload can be on AWS, IT workloads can be on Azure and Data workload can be on Oracle cloud. And Believe there are companies that do that.
In this blog series, I am going to discuss some of the challenges and key characteristics for managing a multi-cloud environment.
Managing hybrid infrastructure from a single pane of glass while keeping up with today’s IT demands that can be complex, costly and time-consuming. One needs to have a universal self-service portal to consume multi-cloud services.
One also needs complete visibility & control over all Cloud and On-Prem private cloud usage. Also, manage cost & Security optimization detailed reports of your environment.

First Challenge: Manage Deployment seamlessly across cloud environments.
One needs an abstracted framework of infrastructure resources and configurations that provided end to end application portability. Also moving applications and services across hybrid clouds and data centers with extensible and fully customizable multi-cloud environments.
Second Challenge: Control Access Across multiple Clouds
We need much more than just API integration. One not only to integrate with leading clouds but also one needs to capture the behaviors across clouds so that you can design portable and interchangeable applications. Abstracted compute, storage, and network resources provide visibility and data across your public and private clouds.
