More than 8 in 10 Indian enterprises are moving to multi-cloud environments for security, performance, cost, and business continuity, especially with the rise of remote work, a new report showed on Wednesday.
Nearly 58 percent of the Indian firms are expecting to implement such environments within three years, according to US-based Cloud computing company Nutanix.
“India’s digital transformation has been primarily fueled by Hybrid multicloud adoption as it offers simplicity, agility, manageability and scalability that most organisations seek to compete in today’s digital world,” said Faiz Shakir, Managing Director, Sales, India and SAARC, Nutanix.
India’s enterprises prioritize security more than their global counterparts and 55 percent of those cited security and compliance as the prevailing reason for shifting applications to a different infrastructure in the past year — 14 percentage points higher than the global average (41 percent).
At the same time, enterprises are still maturing in their understanding of multi-cloud security management or the management of security across dissimilar clouds.
These enterprises are learning to reach for hybrid multi-cloud tools that enable centralized management to alleviate such issues, said the report.
With extended remote work following the rise of Omicron, hybrid multi-cloud continues to be the most agile IT environment for supporting continued flexibility resiliency, and access to applications and data.
