No matter what it’s called or how it’s described, it’s a serious problem that’s only getting worse. As just about any IT team will attest, the days when data lived solely onprem are long gone and never coming back. Instead, the vast majority of organizations are adopting a data-dispersing “multicloud” approach.
The strategy makes perfect sense: Running applications and storing data in various clouds allows organizations to operate with fewer IT resources. You can pick and choose the clouds you want to use—public, private, or a mix of both—based on what each has to offer for your business.
