The design, development and usage of applications
have changed rapidly to accommodate success in software-driven & fast-paced markets.
Cloud native development of apps changes the approach to creating, running and improving apps on the basis of tested technologies in cloud computing.
The big advantage of cloud computing for businesses is the quick exploits they make in the cloud computing delivery model. When the cloud native architecture is deployed to build and operate applications, the ideation-to-deployment timeline is significantly cut short and companies can answer customer feedback even quicker.
Cloud native development navigates through traditional infrastructure challenges by packaging a set of rapidly scalable independent services which optimally utilize available resources and infrastructure.
As these loosely coupled services are maintained independently, developers can redirect focus to the core strength of each service to deliver detailed functionality. Since cloud native services are built around nimble APIs like the Google open source remote procedure call (gRPC), NATS and representational state transfer (REST), project delays are almost non-existent.
A wide range of methodologies and patterns go into approaching, designing and developing cloud-native applications. These include Agile, DevOps, etc. But before we start covering some of these, it would be worthwhile to take a look at the adjacent cloud native landscape by DZone
Most studies on the subject rank cultural changes as a greater obstacle to cloud native adoption – ahead of planning, complexity and deployment challenges. The best practices for cloud-native adoption are, by extension, indicative of the larger shift in culture.
DevOps is the most obvious (some would argue most significant, too)..more
SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) is a DevOps iterative ..more
Cloud native applications are architected in a way that makes it paramount ..more
