What is Cloud Native?
Cloud Native is a modern approach to the demands of the era of cloud compute. Cloud Native began as a software development approach characterized by a shift to componentized applications, or microservices. This approach allows applications to easily scale out to accommodate the compute needs of millions of concurrent users.
A recent shift to hardware designed specifically for the cloud computing environment that includes Cloud Native Processors is resulting in unprecedented scalability, flexibility, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness for cloud native applications. Adopting cloud native technologies and practices is considered by some to be the only path to a sustainable future of compute that don’t sacrifice performance and capacity while lowering power consumption.
Some workloads were designed from the start to be especially manageable, resilient, and observable as applications scale to meet the needs of cloud computing. While these workloads are already optimized for the cloud, the growing number of open-source software applications designed for cloud compute is expanding the possibilities of cloud native computing for the most common workloads, including:
Scalability, flexibility, resiliency, and elasticity are the identifying features of cloud native applications. These qualities allow developers to remain agile and respond quickly to changing requirements—without impacting service delivery.
Cloud Native Processors are built specifically to meet these guidelines through single-threading architectures that make them highly scalable, predictable, power efficient, and high performing.
Cloud native technology was designed specifically for the dynamic, virtual cloud environment to allow for real-time software modifications and a path to data center sustainability.
In on-premises applications, companies can take advantage of the cost savings, efficiency, and performance of cloud native technology while maintaining security standards and control.
The inherent lower power consumption, efficiency, and predictable performance of high-density Arm64-based Cloud Native Processors make them ideal for embedded and edge environments.
