According to a report from continuous intelligence specialist Sumo Logic, Multi-Cloud technology adoption and deployment by enterprises has raised 50 percent year-on-year. With enterprises supporting the container solution to drive their multi-cloud strategies, Kubernetes adoption has up surged as well. The study says that 20 percent of customers in AWS-only environment employ Kubernetes.
While around 23 percent of the customers who are on AWS and Azure use Kubernetes, 59 percent of those with AWS and Google Cloud Platform also use the same. Additionally, 80 percent of customers who are on all three use Kubernetes.
Kalyan Ramanathan, vice president of product marketing for Sumo Logic stated, “Multi-cloud and open source technologies, specifically Kubernetes, are hand-in-hand dramatically reshaping the future of the modern application stack. For companies, the increased adoption of services to enable and secure a multi-cloud strategy are adding more complexity and noise, which current legacy analytics solutions can’t handle. To address this complexity, companies will need a continuous intelligence strategy that consolidates all of their data into a single pane of glass to close the intelligence gap. Sumo Logic provides this strategy as a cloud-native, continuous intelligence platform, delivered as a service.”
The Sumo Logic’s report also proposes a summary of three major trends backing digital business in present times. The three trends are:
• the rise of modern applications
• the rapid adoption of DevSecOps collaboration and processes
• the emergence of the intelligence economy from the deluge of data from digital operating models.
This significant shift has increase the real-time need of digital businesses to understand what is happening in their work-ecosystem the moment it happens. On contrary to the need, the speed, accuracy and variety of their data growth from the complexity of their cloud and micro-services architectures makes it convenient to lag behind. The intelligence gap hinders the real-time decision-making needed for on-demand, customer experiences. It has been recognised that continuous intelligence is best way to bridge the gap when employed as a strategy to the best of its capacity.
The companies who are progressive and want to thrive above with technology can leverage multi-cloud environment which empowers them to distribute their workloads across it. This will make them get the biggest advantage and worth of their monetary exertion while mitigating risks associated with individual cloud environments. Such technological scenario itself justifies widespread growth and adoption of multi-cloud infrastructure solutions in the future.
