What is a Multi-Cloud?
“Multi-cloud” is used to describe IT environments that rely on multiple cloud technologies. For example, you might run your legacy apps in a private VMware® cloud, while relying on a Microsoft® Azure® or AWS public cloud for your ecommerce site.
In a multi-cloud environment, each workload is running on its ideal cloud.
Multi-cloud is sometimes mistakenly referred to as “hybrid cloud,” but hybrid cloud refers to connecting multiple deployment platforms — such as public cloud, private cloud, dedicated servers and on-premises servers — within a single application.
