“You’re crazy if you don’t start in the cloud; you’re crazy if you stay on it.” The recent article The Cost of Cloud, a Trillion Dollar Paradox by Andreesen Horowitz sums up the paradox of the cloud quite well: While cloud is cheaper and better early on, it loses a good deal of its cost/benefit ratio as a company evolves and scales, by “locking up hundreds of billions of market cap”. There’s no doubt that cloud has proven itself as the go-to platform to optimize for innovation, agility, and growth. It’s very business critical, however, to consider its long term implications and the broader impact on margins.
So how do we address this dilemma without surrendering to increasing costs or compromising on our digital competitiveness? Unquestionably, implementing a multi-cloud strategy is the most important step to maximize cost savings. The flexibility of using multiple public cloud resources can achieve tremendous cost efficiencies: With multi-cloud environments, businesses can deliver quality products and services with low overhead. Managing those services and their associated applications becomes easier and more cost effective, especially when paired with the right multi-cloud tooling.
At Kubermatic, we are convinced that multi-cloud is not a nice to have; it’s a clear business imperative for all larger organizations. It’s only a viable solution, however, if managing services across diverse infrastructures is simple and safe. That’s why we are constantly working on just that; solutions to automate every layer of multi-cloud management. Do you need help designing and implementing the right multi-cloud strategy for your company? Our team of cloud native experts will be happy to help you succeed in this endeavour.
Here come our July news and higlights. We hope you enjoy them.
