A Multi-cloud architecture and strategy happens when an organization or an individual uses more than one cloud provider. It enables better support to business, technology and reliability. This strategy is also capable of improving the area of cybersecurity of companies and increase its user experience.

A new trend that we will encounter in the coming years is multicloud migration. Multicloud offers you working in public and private environments to move data from public to private under a single portal. Furthermore, it is seeking operational agility and flexibility. Business and customer needs will be met with better management of storage, software, and other tools. In addition to this, you can reduce costs and reduce risks in terms of cybersecurity.

What advantages does multicloud offer us (in general terms):

 – Quick access to multiple content

 – Reduce software and software licensing costs

 – Reduce internal infrastructure management

 – Increased security

 – Agile and accessible cloud storage

Moreover, the advantages gained by implementing Okta in a multicloud environment within the company are the following

Avoid vendor blocking

With multi-cloud, organizations are prevented from limiting themselves to a single provider. Having this freedom is important that when organizations want to capitalize on the rise of a niche where they focus on an area of expertise or a specialized type of cloud. The multi-cloud application enables companies to implement multiple specialized services instead of relying on a single vendor, enabling companies to implement better solutions and deliver the optimal software.

Meet requirements

As the trend towards data privacy and government regulations grows, customer data is required to be stored in specific locations. Multi-cloud enables organizations to deliver such a specification without having to manage it on-prem.

Performance increase

Organizations can create a high-speed infrastructure with higher application performance and lower costs. By extending networks to multiple cloud providers, organizations can develop better connections and it allows you to choose from different providers depending on what you are looking to employ.

Resilience improvement

Relying on a single provider when disruptions occur can be risky to rely on a single provider, so having multi-cloud allows companies to feel more secure with their data, fewer errors and improved disaster recovery. Ensures that stored data is always available. Minimizes factors that affect performance such as latency, jitter, and packet loss.

Greater flexibility and scalability

The multi-cloud architecture is the ideal solution for organizations looking to store and process data, scaling storage requirements up or down as needed.
