What are multi-cloud challenges?
Multi-cloud, like any significant IT undertaking, involves hurdles that can make your projects fail easily, if you do not plan properly. IT and business leaders need to keep two key issues in mind early in the process of building a multi-cloud strategy. You need to choose the right vendors and plan and perform a rock solid initial migration, especially if you’re making a significant move from a traditional data center to multiple cloud environments.
You need to be precise in your vendor selections and thoroughly understand potential platforms in terms of differences in pricing, security and compliance, and other areas. Proficiency can work with you from awareness sessions, initial setting of scope and requirements, to the phase where we will work with you to screen, compare and design the multi cloud solution. With Proficiency Cloud Brokerage Services we can automate a large part of this process. We will compare the different cloud providers, on price, SLA and specifications, and advice you through our CloudMatrix solution. Once agreed you can provide a purchase within the portal based on a fixed approval workflow. After approval we can assign you cloud resources provided by one of the major public cloud providers, in- or external private cloud providers or your traditional datacenter resources.
Not all clouds or cloud providers are created equal. So, we take away the challenge for your teams having to deal with different management portals and processes. We make it easy for you to ensure compliance, even though each provider is different, so you can secure the environment from threats, and compare various pricing and billing options of providers.
