The world has moved on, again.
In a relatively short span of time, we’ve evolved from the cloud age, in which the resources needed to run applications are available as a service in the cloud, to the cloud native age, in which the applications running in the cloud are purpose built and optimized to take full advantage of cloud benefits such as elasticity and resiliency.
It seems that everyone in the industry is talking about cloud native — including the role of distributed systems, microservices, containers, serverless computing, and other emerging technologies and architectures. While many organizations are somewhere in the process of defining and optimizing their cloud approach, there’s still a fair amount of confusion among IT practitioners and decision makers about what cloud native really means and what the ultimate goals and expectations should be for an organization leveraging modern technologies and practices.
The biggest question of all may be “How can my organization be successful with a cloud native approach and what impact will this technology approach have on my business objectives?”
This ebook aims to answer this fundamental question by relating the technical and cultural initiatives essential to the cloud native journey back to how they drive positive outcomes for both IT and the business. We’ll also sprinkle in some best practices for extracting maximum value out of your cloud environment.
