The Multi-Cloud Expedition Episode 6: Modernizing Your Datacenter for Multi-Cloud

There can be no doubt we are living in a multi-cloud world. That world isn’t just public clouds but also traditional, on-premises datacenters. Efficiency requires even traditional datacenters to function like, and have capabilities of, public clouds. And true success requires those capabilities to be consistent across on-premises and multiple public clouds.

In this sixth episode of The Multi-Cloud Expedition, we’ll discuss the benefits of extending a cloud operating model from on-premises through public cloud providers. The flexibility provided with consistent infrastructure and tools across all environments, increasing scalability and visibility while avoiding lock-in.
