Multi-Cloud vs Hybrid Cloud management

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.

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.
