The modern-age digital transformation has been single-handedly driving the adoption and implementation of new application development and deployment called Cloud Native. It is a newly emerged methodology to build and run applications that entirely rely on and simultaneously exploit the real prowess of cloud computing.
By the looks of it, the cloud-native applications provide an on-demand completely limitless computation power whether you’re on public or even a private cloud. The applications which are built and deployed with the groundbreaking cloud-native methodology boast a few common characteristics.
Notable Characteristics of Cloud-Native Applications
1. All the applications made on Could Native platforms generally comprise the microservices. The cloud-native apps typically embrace microservice architecture. All the applications are a culmination of exponentially small services that are meant to be operated entirely with complete independence from each other.
The individual team of developers owns the microservices that usually operate on their schedule for developing, deploying, scaling, and upgrading the services.
2. The cloud-native apps are generally found packaged inside the containers that provide the isolation contexts for the said microservices. They are exponentially accessible and, at the same time, scalable. They can quickly move from one environment to the other. Moreover, it is seamless to create cloud-native apps and even tear them down. The property makes cloud-native platforms ideal for running as well as building applications comprising microservices.
3. Cloud-native apps run on a seamless and everlasting delivery model. Team of IT operations and software developers usually collaborate to build, test, and release timely software updates the moment they are ready. These teams also make sure that the end developers and users aren’t affected by their change.
Cloud-Native Applications have the edge over the conventional counterpart as they are managed dynamically on a cloud. They are often built on cutting-edge cloud-native platforms providing hardware decoupling and empowers deployment through automation.
