What does having a “multi-cloud” strategy mean to you? (Let’s agree that having SaaS products is not part of this definition, and the focus is on IaaS/PaaS public cloud providers (eg GCP, AWS, Azure, Alibaba). Multi-cloud (exclusively) means:

You simply have more than one cloud provider configured and available for use with no specific workload-based strategy (i.e polycloud)35%

You are running the same workload as active/active across two cloud providers25%

You are “cloud-agnostic” and using the lowest common denominator (think containers) with a focus on portability across two cloud providers19%

You are using a “best-of-breed” approach and running workloads where they most optimally run21%

If you are open to it, please help me with additional insights into this multi-cloud topic by answering the following question on pulse:

Pulse: I am doing some independent research re:  multi-cloud and need your help to:  1/ understand your definition of “multi-cloud”, 2/ learn if anyone has successfully deployed workloads in an active/active setup across multiple CSPs, 3/ inquire about the reasons for your multi-cloud strategies, and 4/ capture some of the challenges you are facing.

By far the best place for me to travel was Shanghai. Loved the city and the vibe. Singapore is also an amazing place to have to be stationed for work.
