Modernizing application delivery
What is Cloud-Native Development?
Cloud-Native Development is the discipline of designing and developing applications specifically for a cloud computing architecture. Native Cloud Applications (NCA’s) are modular applications designed to grow or shrink on demand, and are decoupled and agnostic of any distinct physical infrastructure; taking full advantage of functionalities and services of a cloud computing environment. Cloud-Native Development provides new ways of building systems as microservices; affording adaptability and agility for leveraging business opportunities and gaining competitive advantage.
Characteristics of Cloud Native Applications include:
- Parallel processing: The application utilizes parallelization techniques within execution tasks and data storage.
- Cloud Resources compatibility: The application utilizes native cloud API’s and other procedures to simplify and automate tasks. The application also uses available resources on demand.
- Cross-Cloud Paradigm: The application can run on multiple cloud infrastructure providers (IaaS) without modification.
Cloud-Native development affords the ability to leverage the Dev-Ops paradigm fully. Building for the cloud with microservices allows using continuous integration techniques and continuous delivery approaches for enabling developers to produce code with increased frequency and speed while maintaining a high-level of quality.
Advantages of Native-Cloud Applications:
- Cost-effective: Design and development of applications are more efficient by leveraging Dev-Ops.
- Auto-scalability: Native-Cloud Applications can scale out based on workload demand.
- Auto-provisioning: A cloud-native application can manage its resources automatically.
- Auto-healing: Cloud-native applications can automatically handle any outage without interruption to critical business processes, providing a high level of resiliency.
- Portability: Cloud-native applications are platform-agnostic, enabling the deployment to any desired cloud infrastructure.
