Getting On the Map: Joining the Cloud Native Landscape

Getting On the Map: Joining the Cloud Native Landscape

3/13/2018 • 2 min read

In an effort to stay relevant and cutting edge, more enterprises are having to swiftly migrate their monolith to fully distributed systems built around cloud-native applications.

As you start to explore the cloud native space, it’s easy to be left scratching your head trying to conceptualize where this complex web of microservices begins and how those services fit together.

Cloud Native Trail Map

Into view comes the Cloud Native Landscape Project. Created by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, it was designed to help organizations navigate the hundreds of projects and product offerings in the cloud-native ecosystem. Along with this landscape, they developed an awesome interactive tool that can filter based on a number of different product classifications.

To get you started, CNCF published an easy-to-digest Cloud Native Trail Map to help you embark on the journey of choosing your cloud native microservices:

Pilosa’s Mark on the Map

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, The Linux Foundation, Cloud Foundry, and Open Container Initiative were all established to promote continuous, unpolitical innovation (Ramji, OSCON 2015). These foundations allow for unbridaled collaboration with other open source technologies, which significantly enhances the speed at which projects can be built and deployed.

As you know, speed is our middle name. It is our mission to make it as easy as Pi to drop Pilosa into any environment. Currently, Pilosa easily drops into a Lambda architecture—or any architecture built around a data pipeline—with a few lines of code, while other implementations require a bit more legwork to get Pilosa integrated. We are actively working on those latter cases, which is why we are so excited to be a part of the Cloud Native Landscape Project.

We are eager to collaborate with partners in the Cloud Native Landscape to complement and accelerate projects, while also allowing turn key implementation of Pilosa into any cloud environment. If you’re part of this project and want to explore how we can work together, drop us a line!
