Introduction to Cloud Native Computing [Luminis DevCon 2019]


As we gained experience with PaaS, VMs, containers, DevOps, continuous integration and microservices architectures, a new IT environment arose from this melting pot. By building greenfield applications with the intent of using agile application development and architecting specifically for the cloud, a new model evolved: Cloud Native Computing.

The overall objective of this new approach is to improve speed, scalability and ultimately profit margin for the enterprise. This is not just for internet-scale giants like Twitter, Netflix or Facebook, but also for typical workloads of most enterprises. But how does that work? And what is the impact of such architecture on how we design and develop software? This session will explain the concepts of Cloud Native Architecture and the impact on traditional system design.
