Cloud Native systems represent the next generation of application and platform architecture in distributed systems engineering. Cloud Native is a natural evolution and the confluence of several disciplines, including Cloud Computing, Agile methodologies, DevOps practices and Service-oriented Architecture. While Cloud Native solutions have been handcrafted for years, a burgeoning new set of open source platform components are making Cloud Native application development an option for all.
This intensive 60-minute overview will provide attendees with an in-depth look at the components of modern Cloud Native systems, as well as a detailed understanding of how Cloud Native systems are changing the landscape for Enterprise and Systems Integrators alike.
