What Is Cloud Native
Most readers of this newsletter are likely familiar with the term “cloud-native.” But, even if you are, you might not be sure what it means.
Cloud-native architecture and technologies are an approach to designing, constructing, and operating workloads that are built in the cloud and take full advantage of the cloud computing model.
Cloud-native is all about being quick and adaptable. It’s becoming more common for business systems to become weapons of strategic change that boost organizational speed and growth.
However, business systems have gotten more complicated, with users wanting more. They want
  • quick responses,
  • cutting-edge features, and
  • no downtime.
Performance issues, frequent mistakes, and the inability to move quickly are no longer tolerated. Your users will go to your competitor’s website. Cloud-native systems are built to handle fast change, massive size, and resilience.
Many variables contribute to cloud native’s speed and agility:
  • cloud infrastructure → full advantage of the cloud service model
  • microservices → distributed set of small and independent services
  • modern design → principles, patterns, and best practices
  • containers → enablers of the cloud-native software
  • backing services → ancillary resources
  • automation → automated infrastructure and deployment
Benefits of Cloud-Native Applications
  1. Faster release
  2. Business agility
  3. Standards-based
  4. Reliability (no downtime)
  5. Automation
  6. Independence
  7. Resiliency & Scalability
