Re: [VOTE] Cloud Native Definition


Hi Everyone,


First post for me on any CNCF list. I am very excited to be working with you all as we have more folks from Samsung Electronics getting engaged with CNCF.


With respect to this thread, this is not a vote but a mere suggestion for a sample definition that can be merged or reworded with the existing proposed language -- something in the spirit of: Cloud native is a technological approach to building, running and managing applications using cloud computing as a delivery model. The cloud native approach emphasizes the creation and deployment of applications and not the location of where these application would be running.


I can see Christian’s point below about hence my suggestion here.


Best regards,

The TOC worked with the community (i.e., to craft an updated
cloud native definition:

"Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run
scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public,
private, and hybrid clouds.

"cloud-native technologies" in this sentence uses the adjective "cloud native"  to describe technologies, but without a definition...


Containers, service meshes, microservices,
immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this


Shows some examples of this "cloud-native thing".. but still no definition...


These techniques enable loosely coupled systems that are resilient,
manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, they
allow engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably
with minimal toil.


Some more benefits of this cloud-native thing, but still no definition....


The Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to drive adoption of this
paradigm by fostering and sustaining an ecosystem of open source,
vendor-neutral projects. We democratize state-of-the-art patterns to
make these innovations accessible for everyone."


Vision statement for CNCF....


Maybe I'm missing it and I apologize!

Remember that the TOC has binding votes only, but we do appreciate
non-binding votes from the community as a sign of support!
