What’s in the report?

Multi-cloud is not for everyone. And the technical argument for it is pretty limited; when multi-cloud is successful it’s usually because it’s solving a specific business problem. This report digs into those problems and outlines which companies should be thinking about multi-cloud, and which probably should not.
In addition to our survey, we interviewed engineers with on-the-ground experience building and deploying multi-cloud products and services to find out the most common pitfalls and how to avoid them. The report lays out seven critical best practices for multi-cloud success, including mini case studies and first-hand insights.
Learn how engineering and IT decision makers are approaching using multi-cloud today, and how they see it in their future. We surveyed hundreds of cloud architects and engineers, and found that multi-cloud is more widespread than you might expect. But at the same time, it poses serious technical and business challenges, especially when multiple clouds are being used for the same application or even the same workload.


This report is part quantitative analysis of a research study was sponsored by Cockroach Labs and conducted by Wakefield Research (www.wakefieldresearch.com) among 300 cloud architects and engineers in the US, UK, and Germany, and part first-person experience from on-the-ground experts who are building multi-cloud products. (Additional methodology details are available in the report).
