Managing Traditional Enterprise Applications within a Multi-Cloud Strategy

Complimentary Skytap White Paper

February 2, 2017

In recent years, cloud computing has been adopted so rapidly that for many IT experts and organizations, the operative cloud question is no longer “if” but “when.” The percentage of organizations who have adopted public cloud services has been reported as being high as 89 percent, yet the number of enterprises planning for multiple public clouds remains shockingly low at 16 percent. One clear example of this need for different, specialized public clouds lies in the relationship between traditional and new applications. Traditional applications have different needs and requirements than cloud-native applications and require a different approach. A one-size-fits-all or single cloud will not work for both application types. Instead, a multi-cloud strategy is necessary.

In this paper, you’ll learn:

• The cloud requirements for new and traditional application types
• Why a multi-cloud strategy is necessary for enterprises
• The specific considerations associated with modernizing traditional applications
