Cloud Native is an approach to building and running systems which exploits the benefits of the Cloud computing delivery model (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) through a combination of tools and best practice. This applies to scalable applications in modern and dynamic environments, such as private, public and hybrid clouds.
When businesses build and operate applications using a Cloud Native architecture, they can bring new ideas to market faster and respond to customer demands sooner. Containers, Service Mesh, Microservicesand declarative APIs are good examples of this approach.
