Adrian Cockcroft on the Convergence of Cloud Native Computing and AWS


Cloud native computing is transforming cloud architectures and application delivery at organizations of all sizes. Via containers, microservices, and more, it introduces many new efficiencies. One of the world’s leading experts on it, Adrian Cockcroft, Vice President of Cloud Architecture at Amazon Web Services (AWS), focused on cloud native computing within the context of AWS in his keynote address at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 

In his talk, called “Cloud Native at AWS,” Cockcroft covered topics including Fargate container provisioning, running Kubernetes on AWS, and open source trends at AWS. “Cloud native computing is pay-as-you-go, emphasizing self-service,” he said. “You’re not going to have to invest in a data center and guess at how much capacity you are going to need next year. Through it, you can get very high utilization.”
