Businesses implementing a hybrid multi-cloud strategy use several cloud providers and deployment models, including private, public, and on-premises, to meet specific organizational needs. However, managing IT infrastructures across these cloud providers and deployment models has remained a well-known limitation of the hybrid multi-cloud strategy.
