It wasn’t long ago that Amazon Web Services (AWS) was the de facto choice in every public cloud conversation. No matter your market or the size of your business, if your IT team was talking about capturing better economics in the cloud, they were talking about AWS. As Microsoft Azure picks up momentum, especially among enterprises, those conversations are following a different pattern. Instead of asking, “Should we move to AWS?,” as they have for nearly 10 years, CIOs are often asking, “Should we move to AWS or Azure?”
Unfortunately, this is the wrong question. We’re now living in a multi-cloud environment. The future is not one in which IT leaders will choose which cloud to embrace, but rather, which clouds to embrace for which applications.
