THREE STAGES OF THE CLOUD-NATIVE JOURNEY
The adoption of cloud services, DevOps practices, and ephemeral architectures has been proven to significantly accelerate the pace of innovation, as well as response times to errors and bugs – but becoming cloud-native won’t happen overnight.
Your business will progress through the cloud-native journey in three distinct stages – each with its own challenges and areas of focus. SignalFx has all of the capabilities to help guide your every step.
Stage 1 – Experimental
The cloud-native journey begins when you start migrating applications into the cloud. In addition to selecting a cloud infrastructure provider, organizations often create small teams that evaluate open-source tools and specific cloud services by deploying limited workloads on them.
However, applications that are deployed in new platforms often need to be tuned for a different set of constraints. A monitoring system that enables you to compare “before” and “after” intelligently will ensure that this transition is as smooth as possible, while also providing a pathway to understanding your system as it grows.
