Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

In recent years, the term “cloud” has appeared seemingly everywhere. But it’s become difficult to understand what precisely someone means when they say “cloud.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology defines cloud computing as a “model
for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or
service provider interaction.”

As the cloud era has progressed, we’re also finding it important to define “cloudy,” specifically as it relates to applications architected to run in the cloud.

This document provides an overview of what it means to be “cloudy” or “cloud native,” including:

• Why we need new cloud architectures
• Common real-world scenarios cloud-native applications should build resiliency for
• Principles of the cloudy philosophy
• Architectural recommendations for achieving those principles
