Author of Cloud-Native Patterns explains importance of cloud-native design (Restore it All Podcast #81)

Cornelia Davis, 30-year industry veteran and CTO of Weaveworks, explains what cloud-native design is and why it matters. She explains that you do not have to go fully cloud-native on day one if you are moving an app to the cloud, but everything you do “refactor” to a cloud-native architecture will be more resilient, scalable, and cost you less to operate. We talk about Kubernetes and how that figures into everything, but how it is not the only way to be cloud-native.
