How can enterprises get the most out of their multi-cloud data strategy?


Published on

Enterprises are increasingly looking to leverage multi-cloud environments. The stats say it all; last year, Gartner reported that 81% of public cloud users were using a combination of two or more cloud providers. Multi-cloud is all the rage, and it seems there's no stopping it.

It's no wonder, given the myriad benefits that multi-cloud comes with. With this approach, organisations can harness multiple cloud providers to perform different technical or business requirements.

As well as taking advantage of different cloud providers' USPs, a heterogeneous setup alleviates the perils of working with only one vendor. If that one provider goes down, enterprise carnage can ensure (cough, AWS S3, cough). Then, of course, multi-cloud frees organisations from vendor lock-in, security benefits – the list goes on.

However, despite the eagerness surrounding multi-cloud data strategies, it's important to remember that many businesses struggle to effectively work a single cloud, let alone a few. In turn, businesses must ease the burden by working with platforms that are supportive of multi-cloud strategies.

In every multi-cloud strategy, data is an important consideration. Becoming data-driven is at the forefront of most business initiatives, and organisations must cater for it in all other strategies. Thus, businesses must opt for solutions that are multi-cloud and data supportive.

But the perfect solution doesn't exi–

It does, and it's called Snowflake.
