Understanding the Advantages of Cloud Native, From Application Management to Resource Integration
Cloud adoption is now a common thing for companies to do. Along with the development of the cloud, now companies no longer only rely on the conventional cloud concept (cloud enabled), but also cloud native
This phenomenon is seen in the Global Tech Outlook 2021 survey which states that 45 percent of Asia Pacific respondents plan to move their workloads to cloud native.
For information, cloud native is a software development architecture that utilizes cloud computing technology
to increase the flexibility, scalability, capacity, and functionality of a company's business.
Simply put, cloud native can be a place to develop applications without disrupting the performance of applications used by end-users or users.
There are many advantages that companies can get when adopting cloud native. First, applications designed using cloud native can respond to any changes, including the addition of new features and functions carried out by the technical team quickly.
Second, the existence of container functions in cloud native allows applications to be separated or isolated together with their respective runtime environments. That way, if the application is moved to another database or environment, the application functionality will continue to run properly.
Containers also allow companies to micro-release or update applications like patches to an operating system.
Cloud native is also able to combine all the resources owned by the company. For example, when a company owns a private cloud
, server or any storage media. Cloud native will define storage sharing patterns without human intervention.
Finally, cloud native has elasticity and a powerful authentication system. For web-based applications, for example, cloud native systems are able to hide end-user data so that it cannot be accessed or seen by others, including the technical team.
As for authentication, the system can authenticate the user's login so that the server can check to see if the user's information matches the information in the database.
In addition, the use of cloud native is not limited to technology-based companies such as e-commerce, various conventional companies such as banks to governments can also use this solution.
Even so, companies still need to know what things are needed to build a native cloud system
. Mainly, in terms of moving applications from existing systems to cloud native.
