Why Multi-Cloud? Evolution, Freedom

The ever-growing web as well as the `consumerization of IT` provide end users with an abundance of options and full discretion. We now understand the vital need to internalize the concept of spreading knowledge and information across a variety of applications and platforms as a means to thrive. Fortunately, we now have the opportunity to utilize multiple clouds. Why? There are various incentives when considering multi-cloud deployment, including regulations, high-availability, and global presence, to name a few. However, when looking at the main factors, two key words come to mind... (more)
