We've highlighted what CXOs should think about before migrating their infrastructure to the cloud in our previous blogs. After looking at the best methods for migrating workloads to the cloud, we should look into how CTOs can fully utilize the cloud's benefits.
We need to look into the fundamentals of cloud-native development. Does the question arise what is cloud-native development?
According Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), cloud-native tech enables organizations to build and run scalable applications in public, private, and hybrid clouds. Cloud-Native applications as we know them uses a microservices architecture, which allocates resources to each service that applications use
Components and Layers of Cloud-Native Development
Now that we know cloud-native applications operates with a microservices architecture, we need to look into the various capabilities of Cloud-Native Development:
Microservices based: Microservices typically break down an app into a series of independently deployable modules/ services. Each module references its data and supports a specific goal(s). These modules are then communicated with each other through Application Program Interfaces (APIs).
API-based: Application Program Interfaces (APIs) connect Microservices and containers, providing the applications a means of communication, enabling them to act as a glue between the loosely coupled services.
Containers: One of the main benefits of cloud-native development is the increase in containerization. Put simply containers are a type of function which logically isolates an application, empowering it to run independently of the physical resources. One of the major benefits of a container is that it refrains the microservices from interacting with each other, barring applications to consume the shared resources of the host.
