What is Cloud Native?

Unlock the true cloud.

Cloud native is an approach to building and running applications using the best that modern technology offers. Taken as a whole, it becomes a comprehensive architecture for innovation that incorporates the concepts of DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Microservices, and Container-based applications to achieve new levels of speed, portability, and flexibility. CloudCover's Cloud-Native Methodology relies on adopting four architectural principles and two cultural ones.
