Multicloud refers to using multiple public cloud service providers to run an application.

Multicloud offers the opportunity to optimize costs by choosing different cloud service providers based on specific requirements. A multicloud setup utilizes the pros and mitigates the cons of different cloud providers for different parts of its infrastructure, which may lead to reducing costs, increasing flexibility, and providing additional functionality for your apps and services.

A multicloud setup may be useful for companies who need to section off their workloads to providers that might offer cheaper pricing for specific tasks, such as data analytics or database management.

Multicloud setups can have redundancy, which helps to reduce downtime and data loss.
