Achieving the multi-cloud promise with cross-cloud services

In today’s challenging environment, businesses are increasingly adopting a multi-cloud strategy, that offers many advantages - increased flexibility, scalability, and cost savings. However, like all strategies, it doesn’t come without its own set of challenges such as managing multiple environments, ensuring security and complying with regulations. 

During his keynote speech, Viarengo, explored the advantages of the multi-cloud; the role that cross-cloud services play in achieving the promises multi-cloud offers; and provided insights on how organisations can use cross-cloud services to achieve their business goals. 

In addition, Viarengo delved into the challenges of having a multi-cloud environment, and how cross-cloud services can help to mitigate these challenges. 

The multi-cloud forum

Taking to the virtual stage for a second time, Viarengo joined Samta Bansal, Global Consulting/Service Portfolio Marketing and Strategy Executive at Hitachi Vantara and Mike Milner, VP Cloud Technology at Trend Micro to discuss the benefits and challenges of modern multi-cloud strategies. 

Those attending went away knowing how to ensure that whatever you build in the cloud stays secure, and how to design for reliability, cost, and performance.
