Op-Ed : Multi-cloud is a fad ?

This article assumes Multi-cloud is a fad because it doesnt offer much value and its like sd-wan, a mere marchitecture.

What if these products turn into controllers, working with Equinix and/or carriers to provide cloud-coloco, orchestrated by the cloud.


Reasons why there is no value:

  1. Geography and Latency Requirements are all great now across the same cloud regions.

  2. Mitigation Against Cloud Outages doesnt matter much.

  3. Avoidance of Vendor Lock-in is a joke

Opinions or facts would both be appreciated.
