What is Cloud-Native? ☁️

Cloud-native is the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud towards container technology. A cloud-native application is purposively built for the cloud model. These applications are delivered over a platform that provides easy and straightforward scale-out and hardware disconnection.

As an organisation, this gives you ultimate flexibility, resilience and portability in different types of cloud environments. This allows you to use your resources to their full potential and you are prepared to act in response to future challenges.

Why Cloud-Native?

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:

  • No vendor lock-in

    Mix your technology stacks based on your needs and run applications in a dynamic environment.

  • Unlimited scalability

    Split up applications into micro services and effortlessly run hundreds up to thousands of containers: the containers service and restore themselves.

  • Efficient use of resources

    Commit your resources as best as possible and optimise your costs.

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,
    • Continuous Integration: Flux, Tekton
    • Service Mesh: Istio
    • Cloud Native Storage: Longhorn
    • Container Runtime: ContainerD
    • Container Registry: Harbor
    • Observability, Logging, Tracing: Prometheus, FluentD, Jaeger
