If you operate within the open source galaxy or the tech industry in general, you’ve likely run across the phrase “cloud-native” with increasing frequency — and you may be wondering what all the buzz is about.
Cloud-native refers to the model in which applications are built expressly for and run exclusively in the cloud — rather than designed and run on-prem, as enterprises historically have done. Cloud computing architecture, which leans heavily on open source code, promises on-demand computing power at lower cost, with no need to spend excessively on data center equipment, staffing and upkeep. Creating cloud-native applications and services is the natural next step for developers accustomed to working entirely in the cloud.
But enterprise-level cloud-native applications require a platform like Cloud Foundry to get up and running in the cloud. Platforms drastically reduce the resource drains associated with “snowflake” infrastructure, and in fact, they automate and integrate the concepts of continuous delivery, microservices, containers and more, to make deploying an application as easy and fast as possible — in any cloud you want, meaning you can operate in a truly multi-cloud environment.
On March 29 at 11 a.m. PST, join Pivotal’s Bridget Kromhout and Michael Coté for a free webinar that will take a deep dive into how cloud-native is the wave of the future and get answers to questions like:
What is the cloud-native approach? How will it benefit your software product team?
How does cloud-native enable cloud application platforms like Cloud Foundry to standardize production, accelerate cycles and create a multi-cloud environment?
Which companies are cloud-native? What lessons can we take from their new model?
