Cloud workload portability has gained significant attention from organizations focusing on cloud optimization. Portability enhances operational flexibility by enabling seamless migration of applications and services across diverse computing environments to find those that are best suited for specific workloads. Portability also bolsters resilience by minimizing the risk of downtime due to hardware failures or service disruptions within one provider. Additionally, workload portability facilitates cost and performance optimization, allowing organizations to leverage the most cost-effective cloud resources as needed. Finally, businesses can capitalize on new services and capabilities offered by different cloud providers, thereby maintaining a technological edge.

Techstrong Research polled our community of DevOps, cloud-native, cybersecurity, and digital transformation readers and viewers to take their pulse on workload portability. Respondents indicate the top three drivers for workload portability are business continuity/disaster recovery (31%), cost savings (30%), and resilience (27%).
