The integral role of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud computing models for enterprises

The cloud is mainstream but that’s old news. Cloud technology has been evolving and introducing better innovative solutions to enterprise requirements. Initially, with Amazon leading the pack, it was just AWS (Amazon Web Services) and S3 (Simple Storage Service).

The cloud market has come a long way from there and it didn’t take much time either. I’d say innovation is a lot faster now than it used to be. Before long, cloud storage wasn’t the only solution available. Backup and disaster recovery industries soon followed and now we have a ton of available cloud technologies in the market.

The two computing models that I want to explore in this article are: Hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud. Coming out of 2017, these two computing models were the talk of the entire industry. Neither of them is new but the implementation of both of them is now more favorable for the enterprise than ever before.

Before discussing the two, I’d like to clarify both of them. There’s an understandable amount of confusion associated with hybrid and multi-cloud computing models. This is due to the fact that both terms are used interchangeably. I find the two models to be quite different, so I try to emphasize on the unique nature of both of these models more.

What are hybrid cloud and multi-cloud computing models? And how are they different from one another?
