Each organization may have a different opinion on cloud native architecture but, at the center of it, becoming cloud native is all about utilizing all the cloud capabilities in the best way possible. True cloud native architecture is about designing your application so that it can be built in the cloud from its foundations.

Cloud native doesn't mean hosting your application on the cloud platform; it's about leveraging services and features provided by the cloud. This may include the following:

  • Containerizing your monolithic architecture in a microservice and creating a CI/CD pipeline for automated deployment.
  • Building a serverless application with technology such as AWS Lambda Function as a Service (FaaS) and Amazon DynamoDB...
