Cloud-native applications are the future of software development. Exploiting the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model, a cloud-native application offers greater agility, resilience and portability across public, private and edge cloud environments.
To support cloud-native development, enterprises need infrastructure that enables cloud-native applications to run alongside traditional workloads, and that provides mobility of cloud-native apps between public and private clouds.
Cloud With Dell Technologies Cloud, enterprises can deploy a hybrid cloud model and run traditional workloads alongside cloud-native, container-based applications, managing everything from a single pane of glass.
Cloud-native applications are driving the innovation and exceptional customer experiences that are at the heart of the digital economy. Cloud-native processes accelerate development by significantly reducing release cycle times for new application features. By enabling cloud-native software, organizations can disrupt existing markets and reach new audiences in the digital economy.
A cloud-native application is built with a container-based infrastructure and with architecture that focuses on microservices. Cloud-native applications also use continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). Benefits of the cloud-native approach include:
To take advantage of the power of the cloud-native application, enterprises must:

What is a cloud-native application?
A cloud-native application is a type of cloud software that is a) developed using cloud-based technologies, b) designed to exist in the cloud and c) takes advantage of the benefits of the cloud. Cloud-native applications are usually made up of loosely connected microservices that are housed in containers, making it possible to accelerate development of applications and to scale applications easily.
What are the benefits of cloud-native development?
Cloud-native applications can be produced much faster than traditional applications and they can auto-scale to meet future business needs. Cloud-native development is less costly, thanks to an open source model, cloud-native tools and containers that make managing apps easier and safer. And cloud-native applications are less susceptible to failure – if one container fails, it won’t affect others.
What is a cloud-based application?
A cloud-based application is a software program that operates in the cloud but works together with components on an on-premise computer to provide off-line functionality.
Dell Technologies Cloud can help modernize your data center, unify hybrid cloud operations, build modern cloud apps and scale or migrate cloud workloads.
Dell Technologies Cloud enables consistent cloud management across all major public, private and hybrid clouds with a single vendor experience.
