Start your Cloud Native journey

Cloud Native is a behavior and design philosophy. At its essence, any behavior or approach that improves resource utilization and application delivery efficiency in the cloud is Cloud Native. The history of cloud computing is a history of Cloud Native biochemistry. Kubernetes kicked off the prelude of cloud native 1.0, and the emergence of Istio, a service mesh, led the way for microservices in the post-Kubernetes era. The re-emergence of serverless makes cloud native move from the infrastructure layer to the application architecture layer, and we are now in a new era of cloud native 2.0.



The smallest building unit of cloud native applications, built once and run everywhere.



Cloud native operating system, declarative API is its core, Operator framework controls everything.


Service Mesh

As a cloud native network infrastructure, the service mesh is responsible for all aspects of communication between services.



The ultimate form of cloud native in the foreseeable time, true on-demand use and pay-as-you-go.
