Using multi cloud to manage complexity

Using multi cloud to manage complexity

Digitalization is unthinkable without the cloud. Access to data from anywhere at any time and almost infinitely scalable storage space are both drivers and consequences of digitization.

Cloud computing has established itself across the board and has become more and more diverse in recent years. There are two reasons for this: On the one hand, applications are becoming more and more performance- and computation-intensive, on the other hand, companies need increasingly flexible IT structures. At the same time, costs should not rise to the sky.

To satisfy all these requirements at the same time, mixed concepts are necessary, essentially combining several providers and cloud computing structures. This allows your company to benefit from the general advantages of cloud computing: more efficient business processes, increased IT security, higher availability and predictable costs for IT resources.

The two most pragmatic approaches, which have become established in recent years, are multi cloud and hybrid cloud structures.

The hybrid cloud: a legally compliant combination of the public and private cloud

A hybrid cloud unites the advantages of the public and private clouds. The applications and processes used in each of the clouds depend on data protection requirements and commercial factors such as investment protection.

From a compliance viewpoint, non-critical data and applications can be run flexibly and cost-effectively in the public cloud. Critical data and applications should be housed in your private cloud and/or your internal data center. This ensures that your company meets IT compliance requirements, yet can still take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing; e.g. additional performance can be inexpensively purchased at short notice in the public cloud to cover short or medium-term data peaks.

The multi cloud: best-fit modular structure

In the multi cloud you can select and combine the services offered by different providers that are the best fit for your enterprise. The main benefit of a multi cloud environment is the high level of flexibility it offers to users.

Using the services of several cloud providers makes your company less susceptible to vendor lock-in. For example, if one of your cloud providers puts up its prices, you can simply switch to another.

This allows you to optimize your IT costs by subscribing to the services which fit your applications and processes. For example, you can implement your business-critical applications on Provider A’s server and the less critical and CPU-intensive applications on Provider B’s server.

This principle also improves process reliability. In an emergency scenario you can simply switch your applications and processes from A to B. In addition, multi-clouds in decentralized company structures guarantee flexibility in the IT management of locations, because you can also integrate regional cloud providers.

Trivadis as your partner for the perfect migration process

Hybrid and multi clouds offer many advantages to companies. But the way there is anything but trivial. For the optimal management of complex cloud environments, it is above all the involvement of experts that guarantees success.

Trivadis is your experienced partner if you want to rely on sustainable cloud solutions. We cover the entire spectrum, from strategic consulting and planning to the implementation of solutions, training and services. We provide you with guidelines and instruments that enable you to master the complexity of hybrid and multi-clouds. These include, for example:

  • sound advice on the subject of connectivity, i.e. from the design of the cloud connectivity strategy and the selection of a suitable provider to implementation and integration into the existing corporate network;
  • a tailor-made cloud policy that regulates the handling of cloud services in your company,
  • centralized subscription and cost management;
  • the definition of a security strategy, which involves analyzing all business processes in advance.

Your company receives scalable and flexible cloud solutions that are always perfectly tailored to your respective requirements - and thus represent the ideal and future-proof platform for your digital business transformation.

The future: the hybrid multi cloud

Even though the management of hybrid and multi cloud environments is and will remain complex, multiple cloud architectures are the model of the future. Hybrid and multi cloud are not mutually exclusive. Your company should shift its focus to a multi cloud in order to avert a potential vendor lock-in. And if, like most enterprises, you don't put all your services in the public cloud, you’ll be looking at a hybrid multi cloud strategy.

If you have clearly defined business objectives and use a structured cloud approach this complexity is manageable. We support your enterprise, as your external partner, on every stage of the journey into the cloud. Even though the advantages of cloud solutions are undisputed, they have to fit the company or be adapted – by us - to fit the company.
