Public cloud providers and enterprise IT vendors alike position Kubernetes as the control plane for cloud-native applications. They promise an application environment that will run on any public or private cloud, reducing cloud lock-in and enabling hybrid and multi-cloud designs.
I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Cloud Roundtable discussion hosted during Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld 2019. This discussion included several of my fellow Tech Field Day delegates along with notable representatives from Dell Technologies, VMware, and Intel. What was the purpose of our discussion? To settle the debate around cloud architecture, governance, and multi-cloud, once and for all! While we may not have achieved this goal in the course of one hour, our conversation touched on many important points that are worth consideration.
At VMworld, I had the honor and privilege to participate in a roundtable discussion with some fellow visionaries of Cloud Architecture and we discussed the past, present, and future of Cloud Architecture and Infrastructure as we know it. This conversation highlighted a bright future for cloud, multi-cloud, security, and containers.
Ownership of application and cloud architecture is constantly shifting and is becoming a shared responsibility of business, operations, developers, architects, and security. If you don’t guide the process of cloud consumption within your organization, you’ll end up with a disjointed multi-cloud. In other words: many different disconnected islands, each with incomplete, badly implemented, unaudited security and compliance standards.
Data protection in the modern era is a booming marketplace that demands fresh approaches to the challenges companies are feeling today. They need endless capacity, high performance, and added value from data protection systems. Pure Storage is taking some interesting approaches to data management and protection to meet those challenges and provide additional value to the consumer.

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.
