Cloud-native applications are being developed faster than ever. Developers can take advantage of the latest tools and technologies to build next-generation cloud-native applications. Though there have been many advancements in technology, some cloud-native app trends stood out in the year 2022. Let’s take a look.
Serverless computing is a type of cloud computing that provides a way for developers to build, run, and scale applications without having to manage the underlying infrastructure. With serverless computing, you don't need to worry about provisioning servers or maintaining them. The platform takes care of it all for you—allowing you to focus on building your application instead.
Serverless computing offers several benefits over traditional infrastructure hosting models:
• Cost savings: Serverless platforms charge based on usage—you only pay for what you use. This means lower costs compared with running an entire data center in-house or purchasing reserved instances from AWS or Azure.
• Flexibility: You can easily add additional resources when needed without having to go through any lengthy procurement processes or wait until someone manually changes something in your cloud provider's console.
• Agility and speed: Developers can create new functions quickly using simple code snippets and then deploy those functions as microservices using tools such as AWS Lambda (AWS) or Google Cloud Functions (GCP).
The cloud-native application model has evolved to support the cross-cloud architecture. A cloud-native application can run anywhere, not just on a single provider's turf. It's designed to run in multiple clouds and on-premise private cloud environments, too.
This means you can deploy your applications across multiple public and private clouds without having to rewrite them for each environment, and without sacrificing performance or functionality. You can also use multi-cloud architectures (or hybrid clouds) as needed to scale your applications based on demand while avoiding overcommitment of resources within any specific environment.
In addition, the distributed cloud enables you to build applications with multiple instances running in different locations—for example, an application could be deployed across multiple availability zones located at different places in the country like the east coast, west coast, and central America
Composable applications are a new way of thinking about applications. Finally, composable applications are composed of several services that work together to solve one business problem—for example, by combining a microservice for data storage with one for machine learning. They're made up of smaller services that can be combined to create larger applications. For example, a composable application might have an HTTP server for serving web pages, an authorization microservice to determine if users are allowed to access the app, and a database service for storing data. By breaking out these pieces into their services and combining them as needed, it's possible to build flexible apps that can be easily scaled or adapted as needs change over time.
There are also no software licenses or server maintenance requirements, so there are very few operational costs involved with these products. Low-code/no-code applications eliminate many of the typical business risks associated with traditional development, including Software updates and licensing fees, and Software support costs.
These are some of the hottest trends in application development for 2020. We’re seeing a shift towards more agile development and deployment, as well as an increased focus on user experience and customer satisfaction. Serverless computing is becoming increasingly popular because it allows companies to pay for only what they use instead of investing heavily upfront in hardware and software licenses. Multicloud and distributed cloud platforms allow developers to deploy their applications quickly without having to worry about whether or not they’ll work properly on each platform because everything is essentially built in one place! Low-Code no-Code development has provided flexibility in app development and made it more accessible while composable applications are expanding the scope for cloud-native applications.
