Over 84 per cent of enterprises in India prefer hybrid multicloud as their ideal operating model, and 58 per cent are expecting to implement such environments within three years, according to Nutanix’s fourth annual Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) report.
Enterprises are moving to multicloud environments for security, performance, cost and business continuity, especially with the rise of remote work.
With extended remote work following the rise of Omicron, hybrid multicloud continues to be the most agile IT environment for supporting continued flexibility and resiliency, and access to applications and data.
Enterprises prioritise security more than their global counterparts 55 per cent of India’s enterprises cited security and compliance as the prevailing reason for shifting applications to a different infrastructure in the past year, which is 14 percentage points higher than the global average (41 per cent), an Express Computer report added.
“India’s digital transformation has been primarily fueled by hybrid multicloud adoption as it offers simplicity, agility, manageability and scalability that most organisations seek to compete in today’s digital world. The findings of this report validate Nutanix’s strategy of offering hybrid multicloud as an Operating Platform for our customers, thereby providing them a choice to use the best of public and private clouds, on their own terms,” said Faiz Shakir, Managing Director (sales) for India and SAARC at Nutanix.
About one in five respondents from India (19 per cent) said they already use three or more public cloud providers, outpacing the global (13 per cent) and APAC regional averages (12 per cent).
The report further added that enterprises are still maturing in their understanding of multicloud security management, or the management of security across dissimilar clouds. These enterprises are learning to reach for hybrid multicloud tools that enable centralised management to alleviate such issues, the report highlighted.
