Is Multi-Cloud Still Accelerating? You bet!

Posted on June 07, 2018 by Jeff Flanagan

Over the past year, we’ve discussed multi-cloud and hybrid cloud deployments, and how organizations have been drawn to these models for more flexible cloud deployments that directly meet their needs. And according to a survey from Scalr earlier this year, that’s still the case.

Scalr’s 2018 Enterprise Cloud Management Landscape Survey, which surveyed more than 500 IT leaders at large enterprises, found that multi-cloud adoption is accelerating. In fact, over 75 percent of enterprises are either currently using or evaluating a cloud management platform to balance the complex needs of multiple enterprise groups and create secure, cost-effective cloud environments.

Some other key findings include:

  • 83% of respondents are focusing on a hybrid cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud is already deployed at 32% of enterprises, whereas another 17% are about to deploy and 27 percent are evaluating doing so.
  • 50% of enterprises ranked disaster recovery as the top reason for implementing multiple clouds
  • 62% of enterprises ranked security as the top concern in the cloud
