Cloud Native is a term used to describe applications designed to run entirely on a Cloud environment. The cloud-native approach enables a highly-scalable, fast deployment, a more flexible architecture, an easy installation process, and a simple navigation through different environments. Users only need an internet connection to be able to access cloud-native applications.
Cloud-native applications are either service-oriented or have a microservice architecture. Scalability and availability are key benefits amongst many others that (micro)service-oriented architecture creates on a Cloud environment.
In addition, Cloud Computing Providers offer many standard services such as storage, databases, notification, AI, or backup services. A Cloud Native solution enables all these aspects simultaneously.
The Cloud world replaces or extends a (private) virtualized environment – preferably using a container-based infrastructure. Container-based services have many benefits, they are very lightweight, do not require a dedicated operating system, and are usually more efficient than standard virtual machines. Furthermore, by utilizing a container orchestration tool, they can be started, stopped, and scaled easily.
The MAVOCO Connectivity Management Software is a Cloud Native software and runs on most of the public clouds like AWS or Microsoft Azure. In addition, the MAVOCO Connectivity Management Software is fully deployed on Nokia’s Telecom Cloud based on the Airframe Infrastructure.
The MAVOCO Connectivity Management Platform can naturally be similarly installed on Bare Metal Servers or Virtualized Hardware.
