Data portability and Multi-Cloud Unity


With the ubiquitous use of cloud in the the IT life, and cloud providers becoming extremely competitve, how does data portability play a role?

Multi-cloud deployments are becoming extremely popular, and when it comes to managing these complex and interesting environments is a need that has emerged. Organizations want to know how they can unify their cloud services into the most straight forward way. Interestingly enough the key to achieving this successfully is to implement interoperability and data portability throughout your ecosystem.

Cloud offers many benefits for the businesses that have been driven to use them. Such as flexibility, on-demand service provisioning, resource pooling, and security. Cloud servers can be modeled in three primary forms: public, private, and hybrid. Hybrid blends public and private components. Today, most firms go beyond simply choosing one of those three types instead opting to embrace multi-cloud strategies that incorporate numerous clouds from various providers. Unifying these various systems so that you maintain ease-of-use, efficiency, and security while using these different environments to build your business requires a focus on integration.

The CSCC report noted that portability is the extent to which a cloud user can transfer data and apps between cloud systems of various vendors, and between a cloud and the company’s own internal data center. This principle is often divided into data portability and application portability.

Data portability within a cloud setting is the extent to which a customer can transfer data between internal systems and cloud, and between clouds. Application portability within cloud is the extent to which you can transfer a piece of software among on-site infrastructure and cloud solutions.
