Multicloud, composable enterprise, microservices, and Kubernetes: the cornerstones of the cloud-native approach
In the report "Emerging Technologies: Kubernetes and the Battle for Cloud-Native Infrastructure", Gartner© identifies several trends destined to mark the present and future of organizations that want to take advantage of the potential of the cloud.
The first trend is multicloud, or distributed cloud, which is the adoption of information architectures that allow infrastructure from different public and private clouds to be used simultaneously, to get the best from each provider in terms of performance, service continuity, systems scalability and regulatory compliance.
Moreover, Gartner© identifies the enterprise of the future as a composable enterprise, a company that can adapt to market change through an agile and flexible organization. For the IT area, this translates into the evolution of application and data management, no longer divided into monolithic silos, but interconnected and able to adapt quickly to new business needs. This process is facilitated by the collaboration of the company's different business lines with the IT area, including development. All this is made possible by the development of microservice architectures first and foremost, which profess complete decoupling precisely between each microservice.
Finally, among the media that enable optimal infrastructure management, Gartner© points to the emergence of Kubernetes, which could be used by 85 percent of enterprises for container-based management of complex application environments within the next three years. This open-source orchestrator makes it possible to create a containerized infrastructure for production environments and improve the productivity of development teams through the automation of deployment tasks and resource management.
