Cloud Native software development practices have been a foundational force driving the largest applications and services in the world today. These software practices combined with at-scale cloud infrastructure from providers large and small - both private and public - have changed the way global digital services are developed, deployed, managed, and scaled to accommodate even the most demanding user growth profiles in the industry.
Some of the most common requirements that have come to define the behavior and nature of services designed in the Cloud Native manner actually derive a real benefit from running on Cloud Native Processors:
At Ampere, we have been designing the processors that run dense cloud native services best since the inception of the company. Ampere platforms are now providing some of the most dense container pools in the industry which get provisioned on real cores - not threads – on some of the most utilized Kubernetes engines in the world from GKE to OKE and AKS. Wherever you need predictable, reliable, and cost-effective containers there is an Ampere partner providing that service.
This week at KubeCon Cloud Native developers have a whole set of new resources available to them for free thanks to a shot in the arm (pun intended) from two of Ampere’s partners: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Equinix Metal. Ampere has worked alongside the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to launch two new services providing free access to Ampere Arm-based infrastructure:
These announcements usher in an era of major investment in the future of Cloud Native computing run on Cloud Native processors. This dynamic duo has only just begun to transform modern cloud services run at-scale. The many developers working everyday on CNCF projects now have the access they need to truly transformative technology for stateless and stateful containerized services. Recalling the characteristics of Cloud Native software development above, the new ground to be broken by developers will:
The investments announced this week at KubeCon in Chicago will continue to pay off for some time to come. If you happen to be attending, the Ampere Developer team will be on-site at the show to answer questions about these announcements or assist in project inquiries to take advantage of these programs.
