Private cloud environments are where many organizations took their first step toward redefining their IT strategies to include more control over company-specific workloads. Soon, public clouds became the next frontier, allowing enterprises to access highly scalable cloud environments over the internet and shift management out of house.

Now, there are a wealth of cloud options out there in the market — and organizations need to be able to leverage the benefits that each environment offers.

Today’s cloud adoption is not a binary matter of private versus public, but rather a spectrum of usage that allows businesses to dynamically implement both.

The Benefits and Challenges of Multicloud.

Application rationalization (taking stock of and divvying up workloads across their ideal IT environments) means that every organization will approach the cloud differently depending on the use case. For instance:

  • A public-facing application with unpredictable traffic or high utilization peaks (such as a mobile game or an online store) would benefit from the public cloud’s scalability and quick resource provisioning.
  • Highly sensitive data like that from finance or healthcare may need a bit of extra security, and some may prefer to stick to the private cloud to avoid data going over the public internet.

Hybrid and multicloud frameworks offer the right advantages where they’re needed — but this individualized nature can make these cloud solutions daunting or difficult to accomplish.
