Viet and offer solutions to deploy an effective multi-cloud strategy.
According to Mr. Tam, multi-cloud is a multi-cloud computing environment that combines many public cloud environments. In fact, multi-cloud today is also a combination of many public clouds with private clouds, this is also the model that many businesses are choosing for their transformation strategy in recent times.
Decoding the wave of Multi-Cloud – New trend in businesses
We are seeing a drastic transformation of businesses in the post-Covid-19 era. An analysis has shown that technology adoption has become an important differentiator during the disruption caused by Covid-19. Tech-savvy organizations have average revenue growth of up to 6% higher than their industry peers, concentrated in 12 industries where technology is critical to enabling performance difference. So how did they strongly promote digital transformation in the business? It is based on multi-cloud.
According to a survey by Hanshicorp in 2021, from 3,200 people working in the technology industry from many countries, about 76% of technology enterprises have been applying a cloud computing strategy, especially multi-cloud for its digital infrastructure, and it is forecast that the number of businesses using multi-cloud will increase to 86% within the next 2 years, which shows that multi-cloud is no longer just a trend but a growing practice. occurred in the world including Vietnam. Also according to this survey, the larger the enterprise, the more likely it is to use a multi-cloud strategy to create a solid infrastructure that meets complex business requirements and requires rapid adaptation.
Of these, two main reasons can be mentioned: (1) Avoid being limited and dependent on a single cloud service provider. Enterprises can flexibly choose the best and most cost-effective technology solutions of cloud computing providers to meet their business needs. Obviously, each cloud service provider has strengths but also weaknesses, so optimizing the power of different clouds will bring the best benefits to the business. (2) Increased stability and resistance to external threats. When building a system on a multi-cloud environment, businesses want to reduce the risk of being affected by unexpected interruptions of a service provider. Even some businesses using multi-cloud will ensure better system security against large DDoS attacks, when business operations on one provider are attacked, the operation at other cloud clusters continue to operate and ensure business operations are not interrupted.
Multi-Cloud – Opportunities, challenges
In fact, converting enterprise infrastructure to the cloud has not been easy, switching to multi-cloud has become even more complicated. Besides the obvious benefits, there are also disadvantages of multi-cloud that businesses will need to be aware of.
First, each service provider has portal systems and APIs to deploy and manage cloud resources and other services. The enterprise IT team will take a long time to learn, deploy and put into stable operation.
Monday is a security issue, this is an issue that businesses are very concerned about when moving to the cloud. With multi-cloud, when there are many different cloud environments with different security standards and concepts. More environments mean greater security risks.
Final is an expert in cloud computing. Each cloud platform will have different elements in terms of solution, operation and administration, requiring a team of experts who need a lot of experience, good knowledge of the cloud and a clear multi-cloud strategy to build. Get the right path for your business.
Through consulting and evaluating for hundreds of businesses, FPT Smart Cloud realized a fact: many businesses are deploying multi-cloud spontaneously, without following a specific strategy. This inadvertently makes the enterprise application and service architecture complex, and difficult to control in the long run. It is a fact that if multi-cloud implementation is not correct and wise, the benefits of multi-cloud will not compensate for the problems it brings to businesses.
One of the first considerations is to consistently assess compliance with security policies across cloud environments, such as ISO 27001, such as PCI/DSS. The second is that the Enterprise Application Service Infrastructure Architecture needs to be built to a set of standards that take advantage of the common characteristics of cloud service providers. Next is the centralization of management and monitoring capabilities. APIs to support building centralized administration mechanism, ability to automate tasks well, will help reduce deployment time, configuration, quickly detect problems and optimize IT resources.
Finally, the story of connecting multi-clouds, essentially each cloud provider is an independent entity, building a multi-cloud architecture will need to note a simple but scalable network architecture, stability on diverse connections, which will help create a solid multi-cloud infrastructure for businesses.
