What is Multi-Cloud Management?

Multi-cloud management refers to a set of tools and processes that enable a company to track and secure applications and workloads across multiple public clouds. A multi-cloud management system should ideally allow IT, teams, to manage multiple clouds from a single interface and support various cloud platforms (such as AWS and Azure) and new tools like Kubernetes.

Most companies also use several public cloud service providers. This reduces reliance on a single vendor, allows the company to take advantage of each provider’s relative strengths, and allows for cloud use and cost optimization. However, the more cloud services a company uses, the more difficult it is to keep track of them. Through offering a centralized management framework that connects with other tools, multi-cloud management strategies and solutions aim to simplify and streamline management.

What are the benefits of multi-cloud management?

  • Reduced Strain on IT teams: A multi-cloud management solution allows IT teams to manage applications and workloads across different clouds more efficiently by providing streamlined, unified management.
  • Visibility: In a complex environment comprising multiple cloud providers, it’s challenging to keep track of workloads and know what’s running where without multi-cloud management. For companies to enjoy multi-cloud benefits, a successful multi-cloud management solution must have visibility across the entire multi-cloud environment.
  • Security: It’s challenging to maintain consistency in security policies across cloud providers, and the difficulty of multi-cloud can lead to security holes and an increased attack surface. IT teams should deal with possible security problems proactively rather than reactively using a managed approach. Furthermore, the best multi-cloud management platforms provide security monitoring and automation and the ability to implement security policies across platforms, making it easier to keep your environment secure.
