Multicloud is here to stay
Multicloud embodies a variety of cloud types (public, private and on-premises) from a variety of cloud providers (e.g., Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft® Azure®) and/or SaaS providers (e.g., Salesforce, SAP, Oracle) in the same environment. While most companies would agree that a multicloud approach is the future, not many realize that multicloud is already their present.
While multicloud is on the rise, data centers are increasingly falling out of favor. According to the Multicloud Annual Research Report 2022 by Rackspace Technology, 56% of technology decision makers surveyed no longer envision plans of owning a data center in five years. The cloud is well established, and companies are investing in public or private cloud containers, serverless and edge computing technologies.
Rackspace Technology optimizes your multicloud environment, so you can realize its full benefits faster:
- Take advantage of public cloud scalability for applications with heavy or unpredictable traffic
- Use edge computing technologies for applications requiring low latency
- Deploy business-critical applications on your private cloud to ensure security and control — all within your connected, multicloud environment
- Establish multicloud security for your data and applications
