Application containerization allows application owners to package app components into Containers, which can be independently developed, deployed and scaled. In contrast to VMs, containers are extremely lightweight and provide better application portability and abstraction from underlying infrastructure.
Application modernization involves transforming legacy applications to operate under new paradigms like Containers, Microservices and DevOps automation. This is often driven by the need to infuse speed/agility into the development process plus simplify and automate operations.
Cloud native applications leverage several innovative technologies and architectures to effectively operate in private, public or hybrid cloud. Macaw brings together leading and impactful technologies like Microservices, Containers, DevOps, and Automation to help accelerate enterprise's cloud native journey.
Serverless computing is a new paradigm in which app owners can request and consume services either on-demand or based on certain thresholds or events, and the service/platform provider assumes responsibility for starting or stopping servers to fulfill the service. Overall, this gives a serverless experience to app owners and allows them to focus on business and application rather than on infrastructure.
