Modern Storage: The Answer to Multicloud Complexity

No matter what it’s called or how it’s described, it’s a serious problem that’s only getting worse. As just about any IT team will attest, the days when data lived solely onprem are long gone and never coming back. Instead, the vast majority of organizations are adopting a data-dispersing “multicloud” approach.

The strategy makes perfect sense: Running applications and storing data in various clouds allows organizations to operate with fewer IT resources. You can pick and choose the clouds you want to use—public, private, or a mix of both—based on what each has to offer for your business.

But there are also a number of significant challenges with multicloud.

Different clouds use different technologies, and the features found in one cloud environment may look nothing like those in the next. There are potential management and security implications as well, and there’s always the issue of data mobility between disparate and incompatible cloud-based storage systems.

In this eBook, we’ll look more closely at these and other challenges organizations often face in shifting workloads to cloud-based services, and then we’ll suggest a novel solution: storage technology that facilitates data management and mobility across the entire multicloud ecosystem.
