Enterprise Equality: Do Small Footprints Need the Same Digital Infrastructure Attention as Large Footprints?

By on April 27th, 2022 in Digital Infrastructure, Blog

We must remember that large and small digital footprints are essential when it comes to digital infrastructure. This blog will discuss how small footprints require infrastructure to support emerging technologies and adopt cloud strategies. We’ll also explore some of the benefits of having a multi-cloud strategy.

Improving Digital Infrastructures with Cloud Strategy

A digital footprint shows where you’ve been, the data you’ve shared, and the traces you’ve left behind. There’s no doubt that large footprints need more attention than small ones regarding digital infrastructure. Digital infrastructure includes physical and virtual technologies such as computing, storage, network, applications, and IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS platforms.

As new technologies and threats emerge, small businesses need to adapt quickly to these changes. They can prepare with a cloud strategy. When designing a multi-cloud solution, the two options are single or multiple providers. Both of these options have benefits and drawbacks regarding your digital footprint.

Single provider:

All digital footprints need the same attention. This is especially important when it comes to cloud solutions. Using a single provider for your cloud solutions can have several benefits for your cloud storage and digital footprint, including:

  • Simplicity: You simplify your digital infrastructure when using a single provider for your cloud solutions. This way, you can focus on other aspects of your business or project without worrying about managing multiple cloud providers’ complexities and digital impact.
  • Easier management and security: A single provider can offer you a centralized management system for your cloud services. This can make it easier to keep track of your digital infrastructure and ensure that your security is updated and consistent across all your devices.
  • Improved performance: Using a single provider for your cloud solutions can also enhance the performance of your digital infrastructure. This is because you will have fewer silos and can take advantage of the provider’s global infrastructure.

Multiple providers:

When it comes to multi-cloud solutions, using multiple providers can often be the better option for your digital footprint and cloud options. Using multiple providers for your cloud solutions can have several benefits, including:

  • Increased security: When it comes to safety, using multiple providers can be more secure than using a single provider. If one provider is breached, your data is still safe and sound with the other providers.
  • Improved performance: Using multiple providers can also improve performance by spreading your data and workloads across multiple servers. This can help prevent any single point of failure and keep your data and applications running smoothly.
  • Cost savings: Using multiple providers can also save you money, as you can take advantage of discounts and special offers from each provider. You can get the best deal for your cloud solutions by using multiple providers.

While a multi-cloud strategy can offer many benefits, it’s important to remember that it’s not the same as a hybrid cloud strategy. A hybrid cloud strategy uses private and public clouds, whereas a multi-cloud strategy uses multiple public clouds. The main difference is that a hybrid cloud strategy offers more control over data and applications, while a multi-cloud strategy offers more flexibility.

Designing a Multi-Cloud Solution

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to designing a multi-cloud solution. It depends on your needs and requirements. Some providers even offer multi-cloud solutions. At MOD Mission Critical, our team of experts can help you design and implement a multi-cloud solution tailored for your business.

When designing your digital infrastructure, you need the size of your data, applications, and other facets of your digital footprint. A single provider can offer a multi-cloud solution, but there are benefits to using multiple providers. MOD Mission Critical does both as we are designed with enterprise equality. We reduce your digital footprint while improving your multi-cloud solution. Contact us today to learn more about how our cloud solutions can benefit your business.
