Going cloud-native is messy, complex and expensive. Although some organizations are doing well on their journey, others are struggling and concerned about operational costs, complexity and security.
In this talk, Mostafa Radwan will explore five cloud-native trends for 2023 and how they are helping businesses meet some of the challenges of going cloud native.
What We Will Cover:
eBPF, SBOMs, VEX, FinOps and KISS are five trends that could accelerate your cloud-native journey by reducing security risks, optimizing costs, and simplifying things by going back to basics.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- Secure Your Software Supply Chain: Software supply chain attacks are on the rise, according to a recent study conducted by Aqua Security(*). eBPF, SBOMs, VEX are three critical tools to consider that can reduce the risk of such attacks.
- FinOps is Your Friend: FinOps is a vital approach in going cloud-native to keep operational costs at bay. It can help teams rightsize infrastructure, communicate business value and optimize costs.
- Use the KISS principle: As we build modern software systems, the overall complexity will increase over time. We should intentionally keep things simple and always question the addition of the next shiny tool that can add more complexity down the road.
