Every day more businesses take advantage of characteristics of cloud computing to implement high-quality applications and optimize your digital transformation processes.
In fact, statistics collected by Hosting Tribunal, point out that by early 2020 the 90% of companies were already in the cloud and the data centers hosted there will process 94% of workloads in 2021.
In that sense, it is essential to implement cloud applications and be part of the Cloud ecosystem so as not to lose competitiveness.
What is Cloud Native?
According to the definition given by Cloud Native Computing Foundation, these technologies "empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern dynamic environments, such as public, private or hybrid clouds today. Topics such as containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure and declarative APIs are examples of this approach”.
In that sense, the native cloud becomes a paradigm o software architecture pattern for developing modern applications with reliable architecture, through efficient methodologies and tools.
The following are characteristics of cloud computing nactive:
- Scalable Applications
- Low Coupling
- Low development cost.
We can also point out as characteristics of native cloud computing, the 4 pillars of technology that allow you to maintain a scalable architecture (horizontal and vertical), flexible and agile:
Capacity that offers the possibility of all kinds of changes from a new configuration, bug fixes, etc., by delivering software quickly and safely. It enables developers to automate deployment to optimize testing times, programming costs, code deployment, and scalability.
It is about the combination of two elements: software development (Dev) and Operations (Ops), in order to optimize communications between developers so that they can test the software efficiently.
This type of Cloud applications They are composed of independent modules connected in a network, with an architectural style that is an evolution of the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) architectural style. This guarantees optimal levels of agility, scalability and adaptation.
It is a kind of small operating system (OS) that has the minimum requirements to run an application, in which the code is accompanied by its libraries and dependencies, which can be run both on desktop, traditional IT or in the cloud. .
How does Cloud Native help you meet your digital transformation goals?
In the modern context, digitization processes must be fast, adaptive, and continuously deployable. One way to contribute to this objective is the implementation of cloud applications native, resilient and scalable, hosted on Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
These types of applications, in addition to being a key component in terms of technological development, optimize company processes and improve productivity. In addition, when they are customer-oriented, they improve the shopping experience.
An important attraction of Cloud Native is to offer wide freedom for the hosting of the applications: Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Azure, etc., or combining the hosting with the private cloud.
In addition, Cloud Native is not limited to large companies or specific productive sectors. Any business can use it to launch their applications and start enjoying all the benefits that the cloud and digitization offer.
