The adoption of cloud computing has quickly become a driving force for businesses today, as applications are shifted from local data centers to innovate, reduce costs, and increase agility.
Early concerns about security and data sovereignty were largely allayed by AWS and Microsoft Azure, with only the most heavily regulated companies remaining cautious about adopting cloud services. The constant evolution of security practices supports an argument that public cloud is at least as safe as hosted systems.
It is often the case that organisations will use multiple providers within different parts of their operations, or for different use cases, which is called a multi-cloud approach. Unlike hybrid cloud — typically a combination of either on-premises or hosted in a colocation facility and public cloud.
As a result, selecting one cloud vendor over the others will come down to the wants and needs of each individual customer and the workloads they are running; this is particularly relevant for organisations taking their first steps on their cloud journey.
