Multicloud is the use of multiple cloud computing services in a single heterogeneous architecture. This means, an enterprise uses separate cloud providers for infrastructure (IaaS) and software (SaaS) services, or use multiple infrastructure (IaaS) providers to increase security and decrease risk.
The Power of Azure and AWS Together.
Ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies trust Microsoft Cloud, while AWS has over 1 million users and has more regions and availability zones than any other cloud provider. More federal agencies and commercial organizations are switching to multi-cloud and hybrid solutions to take advantage of the complete cloud landscape.
OPTIMIZING YOUR CLOUD SOLUTIONS
A multi-cloud strategy is the use of two or more cloud computing services. While a multi-cloud deployment can refer to any implementation of multiple software as a service (SaaS) or platform as a service (PaaS) cloud offerings, today, it generally refers to a mix of public infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environments, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
COMBINING CLOUD SERVICES, TO TAKE FULL CONTROL
A multi-cloud strategy also offers the ability to select different cloud services or features from different providers. This is helpful, since some cloud environments are better suited than others for a particular task.
Multi-cloud computing vs. hybrid cloud computing

In general, hybrid cloud refers to a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of an on-premises, private cloud and a third-party, public cloud, with orchestration between the two. An enterprise often adopts hybrid cloud to achieve a specific task, such as the ability to run workloads in house, and then burst into the public cloud when compute demands spike.
Multi-cloud computing, as noted above, commonly refers to the use of multiple public cloud providers, and is more of a general approach to managing and paying for cloud services in the way that seems best for a given organization.
