The Cloud Management Puzzle: A Growing Complexity

As organizations increasingly adopt multi-cloud strategies, managing diverse cloud platforms from providers like AWS, GCP, Azure, HC, and Oracle become a challenge. Each platform brings its nuances, making it imperative for businesses to have comprehensive insights into their cloud operations. The complexities extend beyond infrastructure management; they encompass cost optimization, performance monitoring, security, and compliance.

A glimpse into the future of cloud management

  1. Multi-Cloud Adoption: This trend of utilizing multiple cloud providers to avoid vendor lock-ins and optimizing costs is gaining momentum in recent times. According to recent research by HashiCorp, 90% of large enterprises have already adopted a multi-cloud infrastructure in some form.
  2. Diversity in Operating Models: A staggering 76% of organizations worldwide use a multi-cloud operating model with at least one shared and one private cloud infrastructure. Interestingly, large enterprises are the most likely to use multi-cloud, with only 60% of small businesses and 76% of mid-sized organizations having utilized multi-cloud infrastructure.
  3. Underutilization of Management Tools: Despite the prevalence of multi-cloud adoption, many organizations don’t leverage management tools effectively. According to recent research by Flexera, only 42% of the organizations use multi-cloud cost management tools, 38% of the organizations use multi-cloud security tools, and only 33% of the organizations use multi-cloud governance tools. This highlights the need for tools which have cost management, security management as well as governance tools.
  4. Embracing Hybrid Cloud: A significant 82% of enterprises use a hybrid cloud model, combining on-premises infrastructure with cloud services. This underscores the need for solutions that seamlessly integrate and manage diverse IT environments from a centralized hub.
  5. Business Impact of Multi-Cloud: A positive shift is seen with 53% of IT decision-makers stating that multi-cloud helps them achieve their business goals better (HashiCorp).
