Why “Cloud Smart” is the New Black, and Oracle Cloud is the Perfect Accessory
Don’t put all your Cloud Eggs in one AWS-ket (that’s a stretch)
I’m sure by now, we’ve all heard the mantra “Cloud First” a thousand times. But what about the latest industry buzzword, “Cloud Smart”? If not know, cloud smart means using multiple cloud providers, rather than just one. So, why should you consider this new and perhaps unconventional approach? Well, let’s dive into it!
First, we have to mention AWS (Amazon Web Services). They’ve been the big player in the cloud basically since day 1, and many IT leaders have simply used them as their one-stop-shop for all things cloud. But I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”. But why? What are you risking by only using 1 provider rather than mixing things up with other cloud providers (like perhaps Oracle Cloud)?
Well, there are many benefits of a multi-cloud approach. For starters, it can help save you some serious cash. Using a variety of cloud providers enhances flexibility, letting you choose the best provider for each specific workload, based on its unique needs. It’s like having a buffet of options, and who doesn’t love a good buffet?
Next, we have the ever-important topic of security. By using a multi-cloud strategy, your data, and applications are spread across multiple providers, making it more difficult for anyone to launch a successful attack. It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack, or in this case, a hacker in a cloud stack.
But don’t just take my word for it! Many successful companies have already embraced the cloud-smart approach with open arms. For example, companies like Adidas and Zoom have turned to Oracle Cloud, along with other cloud providers for their Oracle workloads, and they’re loving it. It’s like a secret industry recipe that’s too good not to share.
So, if you can’t be bothered to read a full article, here are the key takeaways:
- Be “Cloud Smart”
- Don’t rely solely on AWS – There’s a whole world of cloud providers waiting to be explored
- Embrace the Multi-Cloud Approach
- Look to Oracle Cloud for your Oracle Workloads – It’s a match made in heaven
- Get Greater Flexibility, Increased Security, and Lower Costs – What else can you ask for?
Now it’s time to strut your stuff and show the world that you’re not just cloud-first, you’re cloud smart! So, go on and embrace Oracle Cloud and other providers for your Oracle workloads. After all, variety is the spice of life, and your IT strategy should be no exception.
