The discoveries from this year’s KubeCon Europe as well as the results in the Flexera 2021 State of the Cloud Report confirm: It’s a multi-cloud world! Ninety-two percent (92%) of enterprises embrace a multi- or hybrid-cloud strategy and 36 percent spend more than $12 million per year on public clouds.
Cloud plans and adoption have clearly shifted as a result of the pandemic and cloud usage is higher than was initially planned. We’ve seen these stats reflected in our customers’ increasing demand for multi-cloud support over the past few months. Maintaining independence from any single public cloud vendor, mitigating the risk of outages in entire regions or avoiding cloud vendor lock-in are just some of the advantages for this migration.
However, multi-cloud strategies go hand in hand with a complex architecture, which is more challenging to manage. That’s why multi-cloud tooling is essential for managing cloud resources successfully and cost-effectively, while ensuring strong governance and security.
At Kubermatic, we believe that multi-cloud is the future, and managing services across the multi-cloud infrastructure should be simple. It’s why we’re constantly working on solutions to manage services more easily on multi-cloud. Are you embarking on your cloud adoption journey but feeling a bit overwhelmed? Join our Ask Us Anything About Multi-Cloud Session on June 16 at 5:00 PM CEST and I’ll be happy to share our experience and learnings, to help you succeed in this endeavour.
