What Does It Mean to Be Cloud-native?

What Does It Mean to Be Cloud-native?

What Is Cloud-native?

Flexible, scalable, and distributed, cloud-native apps are built for the cloud. This approach to application development and deployment leverages technologies and paradigms that are native to cloud computing, including microservices architectures, containers, and APIs.

What Is a Cloud-native App?

Cloud-native apps are loosely coupled to the underlying infrastructure needed to support them. These days that means deploying microservices via containers that can be dynamically provisioned resources based on user demand. Each microservice can communicate independently via APIs managed through a service layer. While microservices aren’t required for an app to be considered cloud-native, the perks of modularity, portability, and granular control over resources make them a natural fit for running applications in the cloud.

The Benefits of Cloud-native Development

Common benefits of going cloud-native include:

  • On-demand provisioning of compute and storage resources
  • Reusable modular software components, services, and APIs
  • DevOps-friendly—microservices architectures are also great for setting up continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) pipelines
  • Cross-platform portability across public and private clouds or across on-premises and hybrid clouds
  • Highly agile, scalable, and extensible software architecture that can grow with your business
