Denodo Global Cloud Survey 2020
Cloud computing technology is growing more quickly than ever before. Applications are becoming more portable, enabling compute cycles to support workloads in real time, and data integration platforms are streamlining connectivity and crossing platform boundaries, making hybrid and multi-cloud architecture the de-facto standard. In 2019, Denodo released its second cloud survey, and that momentum continues with the Denodo Global Cloud Survey 2020.
The results of this survey highlight some unique capabilities tied to workload automation that further simplify the adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud technologies. As workloads span clouds, the cloud providers themselves routinely extend into rival territory, and this is clearly evident from technology advancements such as Google Anthos, Amazon Outposts, and Azure Stack. The advantages of hybrid cloud configurations include the ability to diversify spend and skills, build resiliency, and cherry-pick features and capabilities depending on each vendor's particular strengths, all while avoiding the dreaded vendor lock-in.
In another trend, organizations are leveraging container orchestration as fabric that enables them to extend applications across disparate cloud infrastructures, delivering on the multi-cloud promise. Enterprises are finding that Kubernetes solutions best meet their unique operational needs and capabilities, such as those offered by RedHat OpenShift and Docker or native provider services like Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Microsoft AKS (Azure Kubernetes Service), and AWS EKS (Elastic Kubernetes Service).
