What is Cloud Native Architecture?

What is Cloud Native Architecture?
date_range - 2 years ago

Cloud native architecture improves the efficiency, productivity, and collaborative efforts of IT Ops teams.

Combining cloud computing and multiple cloud services creates a configurable modular infrastructure with greater scalability.

Cloud Native Architecture's Guiding Principles

Cloud native architecture is a design methodology that uses cloud services like EC2, S3, Lambda from AWS, and other cloud service providers. The purpose is to enable dynamic and agile application development techniques. To enable a system that uses a suite of cloud-based microservices rather than a monolithic application infrastructure to build, run, and update software.

Microservices and containerization help cloud native apps be more agile and dynamic, simply by allowing them to move between cloud providers. Also, they help to deploy services independently in multiple languages or frameworks without causing conflict or downtime.

Including a microservices architecture into application development promotes collaboration, efficiency, and productivity. DevOps teams may work independently on multiple components of an application at the same time or introduce new features, all that without sacrificing stability.

Cloud Native Architecture's Advantages

Cloud-native architecture appeals to businesses that embrace a DevOps mentality because of its fluidity, resiliency, and scalability. A cloud native strategy has a number of advantages, including the following:

  • Using loosely connected services instead of an enterprise tech stack allows development teams to select the framework, language, or system that best suits an organization's or project's individual goals.
  • Containerized microservices' mobility means that a business isn't unduly reliant on a single cloud provider.
  • Debugging is simplified by easily identifying the bugged container without deconstructing the entire program.
  • Because microservices are self-contained, developers may optimize them based on core functionality, enhancing the end-user experience.
  • Microservices in software development promote continuous integration and continuous delivery efforts, shortening the development lifecycle and lowering the chance of human error through automated processes.
  • To improve efficiency, a container orchestrator can automatically schedule and assign resources based on demand.
  • Developers can make changes to one microservice or add new functionality without affecting the entire program or its availability when using microservices for application design.

Cloud Native Architecture's Challenges

Despite its numerous advantages, the combination of microservices with cloud infrastructure may not be suitable for all businesses. When deciding on the best plan for your team, keep the following challenges in mind:

  • Teams may struggle to manage the distributed workflow and responsibilities associated with microservices without a well-established DevOps pipeline.
  • If containers are scaled quickly, security issues can arise if not properly managed.
  • When migrating from a classic application to a microservices design, there can be a lot of interdependencies and concerns with functionality.
  • Some microservices require characteristics that are only available on specific machines, such as a Compute, GPU, or SSD, requiring a specific operating system or machine instance.


While there is no commonly accepted definition of a cloud-native application, most sources agree that an application that has been deconstructed into a group of microservices and distributed via containers qualifies as cloud-native.

Another characteristic usually linked with cloud-native architecture is having a continuous integration/continuous deployment infrastructure that allows container images to be updated and deployed on a regular basis in accordance with agile software development processes.

The cloud is becoming the environment in which most of us work, and failing to grow and adapt is not a long-term choice.

Change is difficult but our business has to be adaptable to modern time solutions.
