Frequently Asked Questions about Multicloud

Multicloud is a business' use of more than one cloud provider to meet computing, storage and connectivity needs. Building modern technology services with a multicloud strategy can help increase availability, eliminate downtime, save costs, and boost performance of cloud-connected apps and services. Companies implement multicloud strategies by distributing their applications, services and infrastructure across multiple cloud providers instead of building on just one cloud provider.

The difference between multicloud and hybrid cloud is in the use of private cloud infrastructure. Multicloud strategies use more than one public cloud provider, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure. Hybrid cloud strategies include private cloud infrastructure, such as a company's own on-premise servers or owned data centers. Strategies that employ both hybrid cloud elements (i.e. private cloud infrastructure) and multicloud elements (i.e. using more than one public cloud provider) are sometimes known as hybrid multicloud strategies.

The key elements of a hybrid multicloud strategy include diversity, redundancy, and configurability. Diversifying infrastructure across multiple public and private clouds provides redundancy and means that your services are less affected by issues or downtime associated with any given cloud. Connecting your cloud instances together via an API-enabled service mesh provides configurability and allows you to optimize your hybrid multicloud strategy for high performance or low cost.

Multicloud is safe in that building services, applications and infrastructure on public cloud providers is generally safe. Public cloud providers are incentivized to provide high availability and strong security for their clients. Multicloud strategy can bolster safety and security by diversifying critical infrastructure across more than one cloud provider, limiting your exposure to security issues or downtime from any one cloud provider. Multicloud strategy can be implemented even more safely by linking your cloud environments together with a private fiber backbone.

You can get started building a multicloud strategy by depoying applications, services or infrastructure on more than one public cloud provider, then connecting your cloud environments together over a global private fiber backbone. Virtual Cross Connects are an easy way to link multiple geographically- and cloud-diverse endpoints directly to the Telnyx Network, providing an API-enabled service mesh for your cloud environments.

Multicloud storage is a multicloud strategy employed by enterprises to store objects and data on more than one cloud provider. Hybrid multicloud storage uses a combination of public and private clouds to store objects and data. One important consideration when building a multicloud storage strategy is cross-compatibility. For example, an enterprise that stores objects and data using Amazon S3 should ensure that any other cloud storage provider added to their multicloud storage strategy has S3-compatible APIs so that applications, services and infrastructure can be easily migrated or cloned to the new cloud provider without rewriting large sections of those applications.
