Is Multi-Cloud Just a Fad?

July 23, 2021

In a recent episode of the Gestalt IT On-Premise IT Roundtable Podcast, “High Availability Is the Worst Reason to Go Multi-Cloud,” Calvin Hendryx-Parker (Six Feet Up’s CTO and AWS Community Hero) and Ather Beg (Solutions Architect at Rackspace) joined moderator Tom Hollingsworth (Network Analyst for Gestalt IT) to discuss the benefits and downfalls of multi-cloud. The trio debated the value of multi-cloud and the reason why organizations should — or should not — adopt multi-cloud strategies.

“Multi-cloud is like a fad diet,” laughed Calvin during the episode. “It’s going to be more expensive for companies to deploy applications in multiple cloud environments. Plus, by adding more complexity to the tech stack, companies are adding more points of failure because there are more moving pieces to manage.”

What is one justification to go multi-cloud? “Specialized services,” said Calvin.
