Explanation: Cloud-first strategies are operational methods in which teams shift all or most of their infrastructure to cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure. They store resources—even mission-critical and secure resources—in the cloud rather than employing physical resources like server clusters. Some of the multiple services that clouds provide their clients with are scalability, configurability, reproducibility, reliability, observability, and cost savings among other things.
