The complexity that has become such a challenge for hybrid cloud networking is having a clear impact on technology choices. Visibility is a recurring theme in much of our survey, and it represents two of the top five responses for network technology considerations. End-to-end visibility (50%) and full-stack observability (43%) are especially important in complex multicloud and cloud-native environments for ensuring the health of application performance and user experience. Because of their ability to simplify complex operations, orchestration and automation rank in the top three of such technologies. Software-defined networking (SDN) can also provide network consistency and enjoys a similar role in the hybrid cloud. Interestingly, direct-to-cloud networking, which delivers faster middle-mile conduits to cloud providers, is one of the top networking technologies businesses are embracing for hybrid cloud networking.
