Why You Need a Multicloud Strategy?

The cloud is not just about purchasing computing power; it is a way of facilitating new, and more efficient business models. Often the first move is to create a "hybrid cloud" approach. Although this allows for organizations to have greater flexibility and more deployment options, it can be more expensive to maintain than multicloud.
