It’s a multi-cloud world and for organizations considering going multi-cloud or perhaps making a strategy out of what has already happened, it’s important to balance those considerations against an objective analysis. The fear of vendor lock-in is not uncommon, and some companies has a core strategy to avoid single a provider.
The multi-cloud implementations having best success are those that take a best-fit approach.
Teams working with certain compliance demands should consider the workload to be better suited on one platform over another. They can choose a platform based on previous experience, or strictly based on costs. Establishing a best-fit framework takes two forms. Best platform, or best APIs. This sort of flexibility can provide value but not without its challenges.
