THE CHALLENGE? MULTI-CLOUD COMPLEXITY
52% of organizations are changing how they develop applications in support of digital transformation1, and a multi-cloud strategy often plays a big role in that. For many organizations, it’s just not practical to be tied to one cloud anymore, given the flexibility of choosing the right cloud for each application.
As your app portfolio grows, though, so too do the security threats and performance risks. The more spread out your applications become, the more taxing and complex it is to manage consistent performance and load balancing policies across clouds.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO
To combat policy sprawl without impacting flexibility or speed, you need a lightweight policy management solution that spans across clouds. That means, in some cases, intentionally choosing not to adopt the native application services available on most public clouds. While these solutions may initially seem like the simplest option, they lack the advanced functionality and cross-cloud capabilities that a third-party solution will provide.
With the right policy management solution, you’ll give:
- App dev teams the ability to choose the right environment to host each application
- Networking and security teams the power to define and enforce critical security and traffic management policies consistently for all applications
