Key factors of multicloud management

Reduce complexity

Managing multiple cloud services and internal data centers involve many critical issues for IT administrators, like the need to master different management tools, containers and orchestration platforms from different cloud providers. The multicloud management platforms are able to shield this complexity through unified management consoles that streamline the work load allocations and provisioning.

Self-service capacity

Initially developed by telco companies and service providers, allows you to quickly enable or activate customers with the services they need, developing an ideal interface between the users of a service and the underlying technologies. The request for a service, such as for example access to an application, is automatically translated into the series of steps (allocation of virtual machines, network bandwidth, storage space, installations) required to initiate the service. In the logic of self-service, the users have a catalog of IT services they can select according to the department or job function, and therefore the ability to activate the services on their own without worrying about the learning complex technical details.

Monitoring and measurements

Among the key features of multicloud platforms there is the ability to control the internal infrastructure and third-party services providing the measurements needed to verify the contractual SLAs, but also to evaluate the consumption of services in relation to the associated costs. The consumption control helps to optimize resource utilization by moving workloads among diverse clouds and on premise infrastructures. In the case of service providers and large organizations, these capabilities can be integrated with accounting systems that invoice the services or overturn the costs on corporate departments. This is extremely critical since IT becomes more and more an integral part of the product and corporate business.

Multicloud orchestration

The Observatory wants to identify the core components of the ideal centralized orchestration suite for these type of environments. The Observatory defined a reference model with four primary areas, and within those areas sub-areas are identified:


Centralized and automatic management of diverse environments a company usually uses (public and private cloud, on-premises)


Orchestration of integration between the cloud, on-premises and private environments, as well as between public cloud and diverse providers


Security management between heterogeneous environments


Government and optimization of the overall system performance
