Secure Multicloud Networking Survey Report

A new multicloud networking wave is here

This report by Futuriom was designed to define and clarify the direction of multicloud networking (MCN) and hybrid cloud networking. It is based on primary research, including the company’s annual multicloud networking survey of 103 pre-qualified senior managers with network buying authority, and interviews and industry discussions with practitioners and technologists.

Key findings include:

  • Of those surveyed, 81% expect MCN to help simplify or accelerate hybrid or multicloud adoption.
  • Some 47% would like to build cloud-native networking technology that is integrated with cloud provider constructs and connectivity models and 24% would like to increase their use of public cloud infrastructure using networking overlays.
  • The costs of cloud usage has become an urgent priority, according to 63% of respondents.
  • Some 87% expect to make investments in MCN and cloud-native networking over the next 1 to 5 years, with 41% saying they will invest substantially.
  • Of those surveyed, 77% expect MCN to help improve overall security, visibility, and governance.
