I confess to preferring simplicity, especially when it comes to computing infrastructure. It’s easier for startups and smaller companies to run their businesses with a mix of software as a service (SaaS) with applications and data hosted on one public cloud. Many organizations run on hybrid clouds with applications and data split between private clouds, legacy data center infrastructure, and a selected public cloud.
But many medium and larger enterprises choose to run on multiple public clouds or end up in that situation to support innovation, regulations, service levels, pricing negotiations, or acquisitions. There are choices and trade-offs to cloud strategies. If you work in IT, it’s important to know about the architecture options and better understand your organization’s IT cloud governance model.
