Cloud-native computing is about how you build applications, not where you build them. That means a global enterprise can run cloud-native applications in its own data center just as well as in the public cloud. Kubernetes is one of the key underlying technologies for this model, which explains its meteoric rise over the past few years.Kubernetes lets global IT teams build and run applications faster, by automating low-value operations tasks so that teams can focus on adding business value. Part of the core value-add of Kubernetes is its flexibility to run anywhere—i.e., in any data center or any cloud. I read an article recently that describes the danger of having a cloud-native IT policy. The piece argues that “cloud-native means lock-in” and asserts that “you’re all in with a particular public cloud provider, the single provider of those cloud-native services, with the goal of making the most from your cloud computing investment.” This doesn’t align with my experience working with large enterprises that are deploying cloud-native technologies, which are typically open-source technologies (like Kubernetes). In fact, I believe adopting cloud-native practices is the single best way to avoid vendor lock-in. MURLI THIRUMALE READ MORE
