Cloud Native Apps – The future of App Modernization

Cloud Native Apps – The future of App Modernization
October 20, 2020 Team CloudHedge

Cloud as we know

In the last couple of decades, businesses have transformed from monolithic to service-oriented to microservices architecture. As a matter of fact, infrastructure has moved from physical servers to virtual machines to cloud and delivery models have changed from waterfall to agile to DevOps. This paradigm shift is being hailed as App Modernization. 

Cloud computing and applications that have become increasingly complex with users demanding more and more have spawned applications that are designed to embrace rapid change, large scale, and resilience. Innovation also plays an important role in this change. 

The perceived needs of enterprises are changing as well. As a matter of fact, apps have become increasingly complex with users demanding apps that are free from performance problems, recurring errors, and the ones that scale as per demand effortlessly. If your tech team does not pay heed to these requirements, you may as well let your competitors take over.

Make Way for Cloud Native

Cloud native is as much about speed and agility as it is about changing the way you think about constructing critical business systems. Accelerating app modernization and getting your ideas to market could be a make or break situation.

Cloud native is also about leveraging the features of cloud so that enterprises can enable business transformation at the pace which is the need of the hour. It encompasses exposing systems that consist of hundreds of independent microservices. Through automation, instances can be created and destroyed on the go instead of repairing. This architectural style enables rapid response to market conditions.

Cloud native systems embrace what is known as the Cattle service model. They continue to run as the infrastructure scales in or out with no regard to the machines upon which they’re running. Many cloud platforms support highly elastic infrastructure with automatic scaling, self-healing, and monitoring capabilities.

CloudHedge and Cloud Native

To add more, containers are great enablers of cloud native because containerizing a microservice is quite straightforward. Container images that are stored on the container registry can be transformed when needed into a running container instance, moreover, CloudHedge provides the option to edit those images and keep the transformation ongoing. CloudHedge has a rich experience in automated containerization since it is the front runner in this field and the only tool in the world to that within minutes. Automated containerization not only reduces time and costs but it also ensures to reduce developer efforts which can be utilized for business innovation. The process of containerization of apps which usually takes weeks is bottled down to a matter of minutes.
