A cloud broker gateway interfaces with an enterprise network and one or more public cloud networks, including a first public cloud and a second public cloud. The cloud broker gateway receives a request for one or more computing resources from a tenant associated with the enterprise network, and directs the request to the first public cloud based on a brokerage policy for the tenant. The cloud broker gateway receives a response indicating the first public cloud cannot provide the one or more computing resources, and redirects the request to the second public cloud based on the brokerage policy for the tenant. The cloud broker gateway also establishes a hybrid cloud that provides access to the one or more computing resources between the second public cloud and the enterprise network.
