Cloud Native: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
The current understanding of Cloud Native is akin to the proverbial 'Blind Men and the Elephant', a famous Indian fable that tells the story of six blind sojourners that come across different parts of an elephant in their life journeys. In turn, each blind man creates his own version of reality from that limited experience and perspective.
Today, some refer to cloud native to specific technologies like microservices, containers, etc while others argue it is about DevOps, DevSecOps, CD/CI, etc.
The panel discussion seeks to address the following points:
- What cloud native really is about
- The benefits of going cloud native
- The downsides
- The unknowns (e.g. vulnerability security issues, etc.)
