As a whole, cloud-native technologies encompass the approach to design, construction, and operational structures in the cloud that utilize the rising model of cloud computing.
The Cloud-Native Computing Foundation specifies that through cloud-native technologies, organizations can “build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds.” Cloud-native approaches can include service meshes, immutable infrastructure, microservices, and containers.
Cloud-native technologies utilize the speed and agility the cloud provides. Through the cloud delivery model, enterprises can take advantage of distributed computing, accelerating their business and growth. Using the scale, resilience, and elasticity cloud-native apps provide, organizations can ensure their ideas reach the market at a faster rate.
