Top 5 reasons why you need to focus on Cloud Networking now
Creating a multi-cloud environment is a bit like walking into a Pick n Mix store. You select the services you want or need to meet demand. At this level, cloud service provisioning seems easy. And the agility means you can quickly adapt or react to technical, social, political, legal and financial conditions.
Operating a multi-cloud environment on the other hand is a different matter. With Abstraction Layers, API protection, etc., multi-cloud is a whole new operating model – a system where the network and interfaces, for example, are hidden. This makes things complicated. Further, when cloud provisioning decisions are made in isolation and activated at speed, the result is cloud service proliferation. So, while you may have all the service elements you need, they don’t automatically operate together.
But if the ultimate outcomes of multi-cloud promise better scalability, improved/maintained security, always-on, business-as-usual availability, agility and more, the question is, why wouldn’t you adopt a multi-cloud approach? In some scenarios, your legacy approach may not scale for cloud, but you still need to move beyond connectivity. To factor in this changing operating model, teams now need to focus on cloud networking.
In this breakout session with Teneo CTO, Andy de Clerck, we’ll look at the top 5 reasons why you need to focus on cloud networking now. What we’ll cover:
1. Creating consistency and not complexity
2. Finding the perfect balance between performance, security & observability
3. Delivering the multi-cloud benefits that are too important to ignore
