Understanding Healthcare Multicloud Challenges, Requirements
September 06, 2018 / Elizabeth O'Dowd
Organizations are seeking ways to add flexibility to the ways they store and retrieve data. Healthcare multicloud can be a solution for organizations looking to add more cloud scalability to their IT infrastructure. Ninety percent of enterprise organizations plan to utilize multiple clouds as part of their IT infrastructure over the next several years, according to IDC research. Multicloud is like hybrid storage but uses multiple clouds to perform different tasks. Hybrid storage uses more than one cloud or server option, accessing data that is blended together between two or more infrastructure hosting solutions. The main difference between hybrid and multicloud storage is that multicloud storage uses different cloud service models or providers for data. This is because different clouds are better suited for different tasks. Multicloud service options strategically store data using multiple resources, allowing organizations to benefit from multiple data storage and access solutions.
