Hybrid Cloud, Multicloud Domination: What Happened in 2019, What the Channel Can Expect
Talk of hybrid cloud and multicloud ran rampant in 2019, and for good reason. Each configuration offers organizations important options for their computing needs — and as public-cloud-only setups proved insufficient mostly because of cost and security, more enterprises adopted hybrid cloud (on-premises/public and private cloud pairings) to give themselves more flexibility and assurances.
Organizations also understood the importance of teaming with more than one public cloud vendor to ensure redundancy, compliance and other important requirements. Thus, talk of “multicloud” took off in 2019, too.
The slideshow above reviews some of the biggest hybrid cloud and multicloud developments of the year and provides guidance to channel partners.
