In its 2015 research report “The Future of the Data Center in the Cloud Era,” Gartner asserted that “a multicloud strategy will become the common strategy for 70% of enterprises by 2019.” And in its “2018 Planning Guide for Cloud Computing,” Gartner predicts that “multicloud will become the de facto standard.” First, let’s clarify what we mean by ‘multicloud,’ because the term is used in many different ways. Some people use multicloud to mean the use of two or more cloud computing services of any kind, including private clouds. But the industry seems to be settling on defining multicloud as…

Have you noticed that while cloud is all about infrastructure agility, the networking to the cloud is static and not agile at all. This means while it takes minutes to provision compute and storage in a VPC (virtual private cloud), it can take months to network to the same VPC. This is an impedance mismatch and often leads to performance issue, architectural challenges, slowdown in cloud projects and overall poor experience for hybrid cloud networking.

The question is: Can you stretch this VLAN to AWS or Azure?
