Using meshcloud with Microsoft Azure as a Single Cloud Provider
Not every company structure is suitable from the outset for entering into the cloud journey with several hyperscalers. For some companies it makes sense to consciously opt for a single cloud strategy and there is nothing wrong with it. The advantages of this are time savings in lengthy provider negotiations, organizational integration and even possibly offer strategic advantages.
Cloud Governance for Single Cloud Approaches
Multi-cloud governance platforms reduce the complexity when a company wants to control several clouds and reduce the danger of vendor lock-in. But the good news is: even with only a single cloud, you benefit from cloud governance platforms like meshcloud and can exploit the infinite possibilities of the cloud much faster.
