About this talk

For many years now the mantra from many research organizations and technical influencers is cloud first. This has been ably demonstrated by the growth of the Hyperscalers in the marketplace, with AWS growing by at least 30% each quarter between 2014 and 2020 and Azure with growth figures dropping to only 50% for the last quarter of 2020 we can see that public cloud adoption is on a significant rise. The IT industry is famous for consistently and repeatedly proving one size does not fit all and basing all customer requirements on a single public cloud may not provide the functional landscape required by the enterprise. SaaS services that the enterprise wants to consume may be not be available in a single cloud and regulatory frameworks, internal governance and proximity may restrict where data may reside and be processed. In crisis many firms are looking to preserve cash and adapt their IT platforms and solutions to cope with immediate demand – pivoting their IT and business models where necessary. Enterprises should now be taking a deeper look at their end-to-end digital journey and identifying when they must start to bring their product development, marketing, and IT functions together, so they can effectively digitise, evolve, online. So what are the options for an enterprise and what needs to be considered when adopting multi-cloud: -What is the true cost of public cloud, including those hidden costs for example egress, CDN’s, diminished SLA’s -Data Sovereignty: where can the data reside and what is the cost (and effort) to move it between clouds -How do you manage multi-cloud consistently and uniformly and maintain a consistent security and SLA posture -Does the reward of operating in more than one cloud provide enough benefit to offset the threat landscape increase -How does hyperconverged infrastructure fit into a multi-cloud solution -What you need to consider when transitioning into multi-cloud
