Cloud Native applications

When considering commissioning a new application, it is often difficult to think of the pros and cons of different approaches to building it. You have got an on-premises application that you can host in your own collocated data center and have your engineers or dev-ops team manage it, or you can get the application on a public cloud platform. Or you can even get a hybrid application.

Cloud-native applications offer benefits and functionality that is not available in on-prem applications.

Consider cloud-native applications if you want to
  • Scale-out the application as your needs grow without having to upgrade hardware
  • integrate with other, third-party applications
  • Cut down on development and deployment costs by reusing infrastructure components offered by public cloud providers
  • Automatic scaling to handle additional load due to seasonal changes or holidays
  • Provide multiple points of presence
  • Eliminate any monitoring and operations

Cloud-native is not about where the application is deployed, but it is all about how the application is developed. To develop a cloud-native application, you have to consider your public cloud provider (whether it is AWS, GCP or Azure) as a platform and not just as a hosting provider. This means that you leverage managed services like database, logic functions, etc. provided by the cloud-provider instead of using traditional services like MySQL, or Oracle for data storage.

Here are some more considerations to keep in mind while choosing a cloud provider.
  • A relationship with a cloud provider is a long time relationship. In many ways, it is like marriage since there will often be rough spots which you might have to take into account.
  • There is definitely a learning curve in adapting to the cloud Platform as a Service. The old playbook has to be thrown out of the window and new ways have to be adopted.
  • You have to be cognizant of which technologies you are using now and in the future since unwatched, the costs can add up needlessly.
  • License, subscription and usage models ways by different cloud providers. This impacts how applications are deployed. It also has an impact on how applications will be scaled out on peak demand days.
  • Different cloud vendors offer different locations. In some cases, this is important to your strategy of adopting the cloud.
  • Security and privacy are additional considerations to keep in mind when selecting a cloud provider.
  • Different cloud providers have different fault domains or availability zones. This impacts their service level agreement (SLA).
