No Single tool to manage :
For both hybrid and multi-cloud, the drawback is that you’ll likely need two or three tools to round out your operations approach. This toolset typically includes CMP, security management, and cost management, at a minimum. These need to be cross-cloud tools, meaning that they support more than a single cloud provider, including private clouds. In other words, the best practice will include more than a single tool, but don’t leverage so many tools that they degrade the value.
|Always combines private and public clouds, such as an OpenStack private cloud and AWS.||Always involves two or more public clouds, such as AWS, Azure,OCI and Google.|
|Data is fixed within a private or public cloud.||Data is fixed within a public cloud provider.|
|Data can be shared between clouds, and databases can span clouds.||Data can be shared between clouds, and databases can span clouds.|
|Security approaches and tools are different between public and private clouds.||Security approaches and tools are different between public clouds, with some global security tools moving into place now.|
|Cloud-native workloads are hard to move.||Cloud-native workloads are hard to move.|
|Focus on native ops tool support.||Focus on third-party ops tool support.|
|Focus on native cloud usage and cost management.||Focus on third-party cloud usage and cost management.|

While there are no such tools to solve all problems, the tools that do exist today are worth an investment in time and money. Considering that CloudOps is a new chapter of IT, it’s clear that complexity is the enemy of operations management. Solve the complexity problem now, before it translates into operational failures.
