Today, more applications are becoming cloud native, and storage solutions are following their lead. Containers are the infrastructure of the cloud-native era, but what is the infrastructure of the container technology?

Preface

“Cloud-native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments, such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructures, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach. These techniques enable us to build loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, cloud-native technology allows engineers to make high-impact changes frequently, predictably, and effortlessly.” …
