Cloud-native is a software development methodology based on
principles and design patterns that leverage the full benefits of
cloud computing. The underlying foundation is enabled by
microservices, containers, service meshes and APIs which promote a
more simplified loosely couple architecture that dramatically
speeds development, testing and deployment. Combined with major
advancements in DevOps processes and tools, cloud-native is
bringing application performance to new heights while driving
costs out of the business.
The momentum behind Cloud-native application development has rearranged the software world and has rendered the monolithic application as legacy. Organizations that implement the cloud-native approach are realizing massive improvements in agility, scalability, speed and resiliency along with security and lifecycle automation. Major industry initiatives such as 5G Core cannot be realized without Cloud-native architectures.
