Building Agile Applications with Cloud Native

An evening with Daniel Li on Cloud Native the approach to building applications that are highly available, scalable and performant.

Cogs Hong Kong has once again brought another great tech event to the local community with an Introduction to Cloud Native and last Thursday.

We would like to thank our presenter and panellist, Daniel Li for sharing his time and knowledge with everyone.

This evening would not have been possible without the generosity of our event partner, IBM, for hosting the venue in their amazing auditorium. Shout out to the IBM iX team for co-organising the evening, IBM panellists Yaw Ly and Peter Lai for setting the time aside to meet and answer all the queries our curious audience had.

We hope everyone left the session with great takeaways and clarity on this topic.

For those who have missed the evening, here are some of the key highlights:

  • Cloud Native technologies is an approach that empowers organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds.
  • With robust automation, Cloud Native will enable engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimum effort.
  • There are 3 different business models for Cloud services: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS).
  • A shift from traditional monolithic architecture to microservices architecture helps separate each functional element into a separate service and will replicate when needed. Microservices architecture provides autonomy and scalability in platforms. However, it may not be applicable all the time so use when appropriate.
  • Containers allow applications to be deployed easily. They are run in isolation (security benefit) and control.
  • Dockers help to package applications into ‘containers’.
  • Often Dev and Ops are siloed functions that work on competing objectives. Using self-service PaC (Pipeline as Code) drives engineers to think beyond the code. This will result in a seamless end-to-end solution for users.
