IDC PlanScape: Multicloud Networking for Enterprises
This IDC study explains why multicloud networking for enterprises is integral to modern digital infrastructure, what multicloud networking for enterprises is, who the key stakeholders for the technology should be within your organization, and how your organization can leverage multicloud networking for enterprises in support of your digital business initiatives.
"For organizations worldwide, use of multiple public and private cloud platforms has had a profound effect on how networking must be implemented across datacenters, public clouds, and edge locations. Multicloud approaches intensify the breadth and depth of network transformation required to support digital business operations. With the ongoing migration of new and existing applications to multiple public IaaS clouds, enterprises face an imperative for on-demand, elastically scalable, and highly available multicloud networks. It's essential that any multicloud network adhere to cloud principles, which means it must have the same attributes as the public clouds to which and across which it connects. With simplicity as its touchstone, the multicloud network can help enterprises overcome operational complexity and achieve agility in defining and enforcing consistent network and security policies across disparate IaaS clouds." — Brad Casemore, VP research, Datacenter and Multicloud Networking
