Everywhere around the globe, organisations are jumping on the cloud-native bandwagon. Which stands to reason, as the benefits for IT and for the business are irrefutable:
The cloud-native landscape
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, which came out of the Linux Foundation, is the driving force behind the ecosystem around cloud-native. To help businesses find their way around, this non-profit organisation has independently mapped out the entire landscape.
- Kubernetes and other components:
Out of all open source components Kubernetes is without doubt the best known. Kubernetes allows you to use huge amounts of containers. One major advantage of Kubernetes when it comes to the development of applications is the fact that every big cloud-party uses it the same way.
Other than Kubernetes, ACA would also like to underscore the following components ➡️
- Components we have experience with:
- Application Definition: Helm, Buildpacks.io
- Continuous Integration: Flux, Tekton
- Service Mesh: Istio
- Cloud Native Storage: Longhorn
- Container Runtime: ContainerD
- Container Registry: Harbor
- Observability, Logging, Tracing: Prometheus, FluentD, Jaeger
