As we don't always have time to read use cases, get into white papers ou be present at live conferences, InterCloud, Software Defined Cloud Interconnect pioneer in Europe answers simply to complicated questions.

As its name suggests, multicloud is an IT infrastructure interconnected to several CSPs. You can also learn "Why your enterprise should switch to multicloud?".

However, despite the several advantages of multicloud, some clichés still exist...

  • Multicloud is expensive: false.

Multicloud allows more flexibility for companies, thanks to Cloud connections adapted to each business need. The multicloud thus makes it possible to optimize its connections to each CSP. One CSP for the infrastructure, one for security, one for data hosting, one for your applications...

  • Multicloud does not ensure data security: false.

Using the Software SDCI approach, corporate workloads never transit over the Internet but over a private backbone connecting to various CSPs. The benefits for enterprises are two-fold: gaining visibility, extending the security perimeter to the network infrastructure, and enforcing compliance across the entire perimeter.

  • Multicloud lacks visibility: false.

Classic SDCI allows companies to benefit from end-to-end visibility into the perimeter of their applications. In particular, it is possible to isolate your critical workloads through a private and dedicated connection for optimal performance and security.
