The elasticity of public cloud is among its greatest strengths because it allows applications to react to load placed upon it in intelligent ways. One of those ways is to burst, whether from one region to another or even from one cloud to another. Regardless of the specifics, the trick is to set up rules in such a way that a burst can be triggered, ideally in a way that doesn’t lock you into one cloud or another.
In this video demonstration, we show exactly that using CliQr. We’ll show how you can set up policies that trigger a cloud bursting scenario, in this case from AWS to Google but in a way that is cloud-agnostic enough that it works for whatever your needs might be:
