Deploying an application on multiple clouds presents some unique challenges. While each cloud has similar constructs in terms of compute, networking, and storage, the implementation of those constructs differs to a lesser or greater degree in each public cloud. Dealing with the vagaries of a particular cloud’s implementation requires a certain level of sophistication and expertise, making a multi-cloud deployment an administrative nightmare. What an organization needs is a consistent deployment model across multiple clouds without requiring in-depth knowledge of each cloud’s implementation. In this piece, Ned Bellavance looks at how Pure Storage provides storage predictability and consistency in multi-cloud using Kubernetes and the Pure Service Orchestrator.
