The multi-cloud approach for databases, despite being harder to manage, is growing in popularity as it helps architect against failure and mitigates the risk of cloud lock-in.
Multiple database deployments also benefit data management processes including backup and restore data recovery, and data migration; additional perks like added optimization and increased performance are among just a few of the examples of why a growing number of organizations prefer multiple databases in multiple locations across multiple platforms.
Over the past few years, ClusterControl has added new functionality to allow for a complete multi-cloud approach. It not only allows users to deploy their databases to multiple clouds with just a couple of clicks but also provides a disaster recovery toolset to minimize operations downtime impacted by disasters or other unplanned incidents. ClusterControl supports enterprise-grade backup and restores management, various database replication options, and the deployment of databases to Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure — in any combination.
“Adopting a multi-cloud strategy is key to mitigate cloud vendor lock-ins, creating applications, and services with a competitive edge by taking advantage of a cloud provider’s unique strengths and for business continuity,” said Alex Yu, VP of Products at Severalnines. “The ClusterControl platform empowers organizations to fully adopt stateful applications and services for use in multi and hybrid clouds without the fear of cloud vendor lock-in and provides an industry-leading database disaster recovery toolset to facilitate uninterrupted business operations during disasters.”
