Cloud and Multi-Cloud – The Place to Be
It is no surprise that organizations are challenged by the ever growing pressure to rapidly innovate in order to maintain their competitive edge. Increasing their agility helps accelerate time-to-market for new services. While automating processes not only saves on manual overhead but also powers real-time digital applications that provide in-the-moment services. Both enhance the customer experience which directly impacts business results. This drive to transform to a ‘digital business’ has influenced the trend implementing cloud, and in many industries cloud services already dominate. It’s actually becoming an imperative for the continued survival of any enterprise. According to Gartner, by 2022, up to 60% of organizations will use an external service provider’s cloud managed service offering, which is double the percentage of organizations from 2018. Additionally, when it comes to databases, Gartner predicts that by 2023, 75% of all databases will be on a cloud platform. Multi-cloud is gaining traction in the same manner, with 70% of IT organizations planning to implement strategic playbooks for their multi-cloud approaches by 2023.
However, the move to the cloud is not as simple as it sounds. As enterprises adopt the cloud, their computing environments become more complex, and the need to better manage those environments (and the applications that reside there) is becoming very clear. Containers address many of the challenges by packaging code and all its dependencies in a single efficient and lightweight package that can run in any environment. While containers simplify cloud computing, they also complicate environment management. Red Hat® OpenShift®, the enterprise-ready Kubernetes container platform, resolves much of the complexity of managing cloud applications by automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containers across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
