Multicloud refers to the strategic deployment and use of multiple cloud computing services from different providers in a single heterogeneous architecture. This approach allows organizations to leverage the unique benefits of various cloud platforms, such as improved reliability, risk management, and cost-effectiveness, by distributing workloads across different clouds based on their specific requirements, capabilities, and strengths.
Multicloud involves using multiple cloud services from various providers to capitalize on specific features or cost benefits, without integration among them. Hybrid cloud combines on-premises or private cloud with public cloud services, interconnected to allow data and application sharing. The key difference lies in multicloud's focus on diversity without integration, versus hybrid cloud's integrated approach for flexibility and optimal resource use between private and public environments.
