Build a multi-cloud app with these four factors in mind
A multi-cloud strategy reduces vendor lock-in and outage risks. But to realize those benefits, development teams must first design apps to successfully run on various platforms.
In software development today, the cloud is a fact of life. And, increasingly, enterprises plan their application architectures across multiple public cloud providers, rather than just one.
A key driver behind multi-cloud adoption is increased reliability. In 2017, Amazon’s Simple Storage Service went down due to a typo in a command executed during routine maintenance. In the pre-cloud era, the consequences of an error like that would be relatively negligible. But, due to the growing dependence on public cloud infrastructure, that one typo reportedly cost upwards of $150 million in losses across many companies.
A multi-cloud app — or an app designed to run on various cloud-based infrastructures — helps mitigate these risks; if one platform goes down, other steps in to take its place. Continue reading
