Educational Video on Multi Cloud Security challenges
“Computing may someday be organized as a public utility just as the telephone system is a public utility”- Prof. John McCarthy at MIT’s centennial celebration in 1961.
The idea of cloud computing isn’t new. Perhaps, it took several decades for cloud computing to become a commercial phenomenon. Today, cloud has become an integral part of enterprise business strategy. Research firm Gartner predicts that 85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025 and estimates that over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30% in 2021.
Organizations might start with either a private cloud or a single public cloud platform when they begin their cloud journey. As cloud adoption increases, organizations realize the need for multiple cloud vendors and start their journey towards a multi-cloud model. In the Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA) recent research study, Cloud Security and Technology Maturity Survey, 61% of the organizations surveyed indicated that either they utilize hybrid cloud model (36%) or a combination of hybrid and multi-cloud (25%). In addition, organizations are adopting multi-cloud for several key reasons, such as to:
· Leverage best in class features from various Cloud Service Providers (CSP) (29%)
· Avoiding vendor lock-in (21%)
· Reducing cloud concentration risk (16%)
Multi-cloud approaches come with several benefits; though there are challenges as well. In order to realize the intended benefits, several challenges need to be addressed.
