  • In a multi-cloud architecture, assets are distributed across multiple Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platforms. The aim is to optimize performance while limiting risk and downtime. Enterprises are also able to avoid the dreaded vendor lock-in that can result in both unfavorable contracting terms and underwhelming performance.
  • Telcos have an important role to play, in the very near-term providing secure connectivity between the client environment and third-party clouds. Going forward, as 5G becomes more prevalent (facilitating the development of more edge compute solutions that support latency-sensitive use cases) telcos will be in a prime position to play a lead role in delivering these.
  • Telcos need to clearly communicate how they are currently playing a key partner role by supplying the critical connectivity and in some cases automation and orchestration that makes multi-cloud environments function at a high level.
