The cloud is a technological marvel, helping businesses realize a vast range of benefits thanks to its scalability, reliability and adaptability. Now, savvy organizations are upping their game and implementing multi-cloud environments to realize further benefits and stride ahead of the competition. Here are three of the top advantages that a multi-cloud environment could bring to your organization.
Benefit 1: “Cloud-First” Resilience
In a multi-cloud environment, the cloud is the default location for your online applications, across multiple environments. This provides a new level of security and reliability for your business thanks to the diversity of a multi-cloud deployment. Here, you can share your valuable corporate information across different cloud storage platforms, so no single provider has a complete copy of your data, making it more difficult to breach and providing a further layer of resilience if your primary provider suffers an outage.
At Alibaba Cloud, we also provide a wealth of security solutions, to further protect your business across your data, business, and product lifecycles, and as you scale across multiple cloud platforms. These include our Anti-DDoS Pro, Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Server Guard services, which protect against massive DDoS attacks and can isolate your cloud network so its resources can operate in a secure environment, potentially within a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
Benefit 2: International Scalability
A primary benefit of a multi-cloud environment is your ability to scale up and reach more consumers in a wide range of regions. When scaling with Alibaba Cloud, we can help you do this with ease, thanks to our range of comprehensive solutions.
Our Container Service, for example, provides your online applications with the autonomy they need to run across multiple providers, freeing your DevOps teams from time-consuming cloud management tasks. It provides a set of fully managed and optimized database services, automatically fixing any detected issues.
We’re also the number one cloud provider in China and Asia, and can help you expand into this complex region through our China Gateway solution. Here, we can help you navigate through the complexities of ICP registration, and our China Gateway Security Solution also works with our Information MLPS 2.0 Compliance solution to provide you with a robust security solution.
Benefit 3: Cost-Effective Innovation
A multi-cloud environment gives you the freedom to choose a best-of-breed solution from a number of competing services, allowing you to shop around for the most cost-effective option. At Alibaba Cloud, we don’t just provide you with a place to put your data. We also provide our customers with a wealth of intuitive and innovative cloud-based products and services, helping you realize real value for your organization.
Our Web Hosting solutions, for example, can help you reduce your IT costs while guaranteeing the security and stability of your site. Our Artificial Intelligence solutions can optimize your business at every point in its supply chain, where our Intelligence Brain works across a broad range of industries, identifying new ways of working to race ahead of the competition. Our cutting-edge E-MapReduce and MaxCompute solutions also embrace big data analytics to help you create targeted campaigns based on accurate customer profiles.
Our extensive list of cloud-based solutions is as limitless as the potential of a multi-cloud environment. Coupled with our technical expertise and cross-industry experience, we can help you set up, deploy, and manage a multi-cloud environment to innovate and optimize your business.
