Public clouds are commonplace among businesses these days. A public cloud is an IT model where ondemand computing services and infrastructure are managed by a third-party provider and shared with multiple organizations using the public Internet. About 73% of businesses are currently using two or more public clouds. This is becoming a problem because most public clouds are not designed to operate alongside other cloud systems.

Almost half of technology executives report that their cloud structure is increasingly complicated, but they are looking to increase consistency across their public cloud environments. The cross-cloud operating model is aimed at fixing any inconsistencies between clouds and making them more compatible with each other. With cross-cloud, operators can deploy, monitor and manage apps for every cloud. This will allow businesses to spend more time working on their business and less time trying to manage multi-cloud dilemmas. The VMware Cross-Cloud services portfolio is an industry-first, multi-cloud architecture that unifies app and cloud infrastructure, development and operations.
