The seven deadly sins of multi-cloud

The dos, don’ts and other dangers


If you weren’t one of the organisations lucky enough to be shifting all of your IT onto a single cloud provider (which means, just about everybody), the chances are that you are tussling with which workloads to put where, and which to leave as they are.

The idea of hybrid cloud - suggesting a single architecture across in-house and hosted resources - is proving equally elusive: the reality for many is multi-cloud, in which a number of providers are being used, each according to their merits for a particular job.

While multi-cloud has emerged as a common cloud strategy, as enterprises seek to avoid lock-in and match workloads with the best provider, many implementations are struggling.

Specialist DevOps consultancy Automation Logic, who have delivered over 60 major enterprise cloud and DevOps engagements to date, are well versed in the issues, from delivery challenges to unmet expectations, and are therefore in a prime position to run through the dos, don’ts and other dangers of multi-cloud delivery.

In the course of their work, Automation Logic have identified seven common pitfalls which can hamstring multi-cloud adoption initiatives. In this webinar we take these from the top, as company founder Kris Saxton talks to the Reg’s Jon Collins about what makes multi-cloud adoption so hard, drilling into what can go (very) wrong, and how to get it right.

So, if you are currently struggling with your multi-cloud implementation, or if you are still at the planning stages, if you have it all sewn up or if it looks like you have more questions than answers, tune in.
