Cloud Native is about how applications are created and deployed, not where. Cloud Native applications are developed and deployed in an agile DevOps high velocity iterative cadence by small, dedicated feature teams to a platform that offers easy scale-out and hardware decoupling such as AWS — providing organizations with greater agility, resilience, and portability across cloud environments.

Why Portable Cloud Native Apps Should Be Your Default Development Standard
Why Portability Matters
These Cloud environments can also include on-premise data centers (i.e. hybrid cloud) or other Cloud providers (i.e. multi-cloud), providing customers the ability to ‘develop an application once, deploy on any cloud’. With many organizations still needing to maintain applications and data on premise, application portability is essential especially for hybrid clouds.
The Key Difference
At its heart, a Cloud Native strategy is about handling technical risk. In a waterfall, monolithic environment risk is mitigated by taking large steps slow and carefully. The Cloud Native approach is about moving quickly by taking small, reversible and low-risk steps – and this is how Blackpearl Software Systems works with its customers.
