Cloud watchers and enterprises alike are seeing the emergence of a logical and physical technology layer that sits above the collection of public clouds that seems to be accumulating within enterprises today, or better put multiclouds.  This layer of application development, operations, observability, security, governance, and other things exists above the public cloud providers, and are bundled together allowing multiclouds to function with the least amount of enterprises resources (money) and return the maximum value back to the enterprises for the investments made.   
Terms that are beginning to emerge for this concept includes “supercloud,” “distributed cloud,” “metacloud” (my vote), and “abstract cloud.”   However, they are all promoting the same basic benefit, to remove much of the complexity and redundancy from multicloud deployments that simply put, have too many moving parts to operate securely, effectively, and most important, supporting cost efficiencies.        
The metacloud concept will be the single focus for the next 5 to 10 years as we begin to put public clouds to work. Having a collection of cloud services managed with abstraction and automation is much more valuable than attempting to leverage each public cloud provider on its terms, rather than yours. 
In this keynote presentation I’ll explain this emerging concept in a way that makes sense to both businesspeople, and techies alike.   We’ll learn about the need for this emerging concept, as well as what value that can be expected.  Finally, the technology stack that makes up a metacloud, and how you can begin your journey to the next frontier of cloud computing today.
