WHY PORTABLE CLOUD NATIVE APPS SHOULD BE YOUR DEFAULT DEVELOPMENT STANDARD

Cloud-native is about how applications are created and deployed, not where. Cloud-native applications are developed and deployed in an agile DevOps high velocity iterative cadence by small, dedicated feature teams to a platform that offers easy scale-out and hardware decoupling such as AWS — providing organizations with greater agility, resilience, and portability across cloud environments.

WHY PORTABILITY MATTERS

These Cloud environments can also include on-premise data centers (i.e. hybrid cloud) or other Cloud providers (i.e. multi-cloud), providing customers the ability to ‘develop an application once, deploy on any cloud’. With many organizations still needing to maintain applications and data on premise, application portability is essential especially for hybrid clouds.

THE KEY DIFFERENCE

At its heart, a Cloud Native strategy is about handling technical risk. In a waterfall, monolithic environment risk is mitigated by taking large steps slow and carefully. The Cloud Native approach is about moving quickly by taking small, reversible and low-risk steps – and this is how NorthBay works with its customers.

CLOUD NATIVE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT COMPONENTS

The major components of a cloud native application development strategy include

Microservices, event-driven architectures and other managed services using standardized APIs.

Containerization to streamline maintenance, enable CI/CD to increase frequency of deployments and application portability

Serverless to abstract simplify infrastructure provisioning (e.g. storage, compute and networking)

Purpose specific Cloud native Databases

DevOps automation across the application lifecycle, including testing

BENEFITS OF CLOUD APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

Time to value delivering better CX

The ability to release new functionality with improved customer experiences increasingly sets the most innovative organizations apart from their trailing competition
Productivity gains with ease of management

Innovations like Serverless free up valuable time for scarce DevOps talents and pervasive automation creates efficiencies of scale and convenience
Business impact and lower cost

Standardization and the demise of costly proprietary technologies drive down cost, and the enhanced velocity and CX improvements creates greater business value
