The advent of hybrid and multi-cloud has created opportunities for enterprise IT providers, telecommunications companies, and even public cloud providers – some of whom had once abandoned the idea of a private cloud.
Today, much of the enterprise technology industry has gathered around what are known as multicloud services, which provide the installations that enable organizations to manage workloads and data across public and private clouds.
However, the approach to multicloud differs from provider to provider. Red Hat is focused on delivering an application platform that runs on multiple clouds, while data storage providers like Pure Storage provide a common data layer that aims to unite hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems.
Then there are the hyperscale cloud providers such as Google Cloud, which have the hybrid cloud management platform Anthos, which is intended to simplify the management of containerized applications regardless of their location – on various public cloud services or on site.
