Cloud Native Applications

Cloud Native Applications

Unlike traditional server-based applications, cloud-native apps are built for scale, flexibility, are more reliable and benefit from faster time to market.

Cloud-native development is the new applications paradigm to describe container-based environments. Unlike traditional server-based applications, cloud-native apps are built for scale, flexibility, reliability and faster time to market. 

Cloud native applications are built with micro services architecture, and they can be deployed in public, private or hybrid clouds. When developed with API (Application Program Interface) and managed services integration, they can deliver extra value, benefiting from loosely coupled features, more securely and at scale. 

Businesses are increasingly choosing cloud-native application development to ensure that the software they need is future-proofed and more flexible, and their apps can be adapted and improved with greater efficiency.



Building Cloud-Native Apps

Applications built with services packaged in containers and deployed as microservices create benefit for features operating in different environments, such as: public and private clouds, virtual machines, and platform-as-a-service containers. They can even support serverless functions.

Working with Symphony Solutions to develop cloud-native application begins with understanding the customer’s objectives. Teams specializing in cloud-native application development map out the path for the application needed, alongside relevant integrations and update schedules. Cloud-native applications provide faster release cycles, so results are seen much sooner. As part of the building process, apps can benefit from end-user testing earlier in the process, to ensure features and user-experience are data- and user-insights driven.

Why Cloud-Native
Cloud-native applications are quicker, more efficient and effective to build, launch and maintain and allow customers to build more robust, resilient, scalable, and cost-effective applications. Cloud apps are less expensive to update, improve and manage and give companies greater flexibility and control, creating faster workflows and deployment processes, versus greater restriction for applications built the more traditional way. Many organizations focus on the economics of cloud adoption, but it is more about getting products to users in less than half the the time. Once organizations actually start using the cloud, they quickly understand that the value proposition is more about accelerating innovation than about lowering IT overhead.
Cloud Architecture
As far as possible, cloud architecture for cloud-native applications is designed to allow for single-function services. This gives these apps enhanced flexibility and scalability. Developers creating applications can focus on individual features without being concerned about the impact that changes make on the whole application. Consequently, infrastructure is developed in accordance with efficiency principles that maximize the value clients gain from the application architecture.
Cloud Security
Security continues for many organizations as an inhibitor to cloud-adoption. Much has been written about private data centers as more secure. But hyper-scale public clouds are usually more secure than most internal corporate data centers, because the big providers can invest resources into InfoSec that dwarf the amounts available to individual companies.
Serverless Cloud Applications
Reduce the time and cost of worrying about application infrastructure. Spend more time on mission-critical projects and tasks. Serverless apps built and operating on fully managed end-to-end platforms can increase application outputs and time to deployment. Speed up the pace of innovation in your organization.
