How are Cloud-Native Applications Managed?

By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 4, 2019

FREMONT, CA: The demolition of age-old software and programs has given birth to a whole new set of upgraded applications. The upcoming cloud augmented software is created by developers with the intent to bring a highly customizable, responsive, and scalable platform to the users. The cloud computing environment not only enhances the application possibilities but also facilitates an undisturbed workflow process. As we drive toward the future, the companies, project managers, virtual office environments, and small and medium-sized business (SMB) owners are all set to move toward a completely cloud-based podium.

The verbal similarities of cloud-based applications and cloud-native software have caused major bewilderment among rookies. Cloud-native and cloud-based have no parallels between them as the process of development, deployment, and refurbishment largely differs from one another. The transition of hosting serves as the foundational blocks of the cloud computational environment. The traditional hosting methodology with a finite amount of allocated resources provides limited scalability which, when reached to the limit, generates a negative effect to the entire performance. The cloud hosting produces a web of interlinked servers all conjoined at a single virtual cloud platform which provides an improved alternative to traditional servers. The inter-linkage of several servers empowers clients to administer server spaces as per their demands.

Virtual private servers (VPS) hosts utilize single server partitioned with its operating system to house information. Amazon web services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, the popular cloud hosting providers can draw upon the aggregative resources of multiple data centers in order to meet the increasing demands of the clients. The flexibility of cloud hosting empowers clients to manipulate resources of multiple, distributed data centers. 

Cloud-native apps are programmed to execute and perform exclusively within the expansive parameters of a virtual computing ecosystem. The concept of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) constructs the primary framework to host a website or deploy a cloud-native app. Components of repetitive processes and predictable outcomes of software can be allocated in digital containers and deployed across the entire enterprise when needed.  The cloud-native app facilitates portability and elevates the stateless computing environment to allow deployment across all platforms.
