Multicloud Briefing

1 hour
A multicloud architecture is the aggregation of optimized private data center, private cloud, edge computing and public cloud(s). The goal of a well-established multicloud strategy is to support an organization's business drivers, including net-new revenue generation, cost reduction and speed to market. WWT has a deep understanding of all the above components and how they logically come together to transform an organization. We have consultative expertise to align, integrate and accelerate our customer's multicloud strategy. These capabilities, combined with our world-class partnerships with traditional infrastructure OEMs, trusted partnership with Equinix and rapidly developing partnerships with AWS, Azure, GCP and ISV Marketplace OEMs, make WWT an unparalleled multicloud partner.


In this briefing, we will discuss the capabilities and benefits of a multicloud architecture, along with vendor-specific capabilities and innovations. We work with your key stakeholders to understand your long term-vision and strategy in migrating and managing applications in the cloud. This will include the necessary frameworks and policies to deliver and run an optimized cloud environment, the roles and resources necessary to manage an enterprise-class cloud environment, and the technological considerations involved.

We will then discuss how our approach and capabilities can assist your organization in identifying gaps in the above and help build a strategy to meet your business outcomes and mature your cloud organization.
