As an industry, we use the term “multi-cloud” in variety of contexts without any nuance. Digging in deeper, you find that there are many different definitions of multi-cloud, but they can roughly be summarized as workflow portability, workload portability, traffic portability, or data portability. In this talk, we try to define each of these variants and go into the nuance of what each means. You can be multi-cloud with any one of them, and they don’t preclude each other. However, there are very different approaches and implications for each version.
