Cloud agnosticism – Part 3

Introduction Many organizations are looking at cloud-agnosticism architectures to avoid vendor lock-in, whilst minimizing hosting expenditure and increasing availability and scalability according to demands. At the heart of cloud agnosticism lies the notion of multi-cloud environments. In this post, I will be discussing the existing literature pertaining to infrastructure as code, containerization, and leveraging a multi cloud setup towards the […]

Cloud agnosticism – Part 2

Foundation Multi-cloud cost-aware resource scheduling has been proven to yield 90.8% savings in VM subscriptions, 99.2% in egress network traffic and quadrupling data transfers (Jiang et al., 2020). Cloud agnosticism emerges from the price of cloud computing as well as vendor lock-in. Cloud expenses are a big source of worry for all customers. As CSPs raise the price of their […]

Cloud agnosticism – Part 1

An Introduction Cloud agnosticism stems from the costs associated to cloud computing and vendor locking as discussed in a previous post on cloud computing economics and trends. An organization leveraging cloud service computing tends to witness a gradual increase in the TCO due to increased data, services, bandwidth and upselling (additional new services). This results in higher service delivery costs […]
