Hi guys,

I am abit confused by what is a cloud native applications.

For all I know, I can use Spring Boot to build the apps based on micro services design and then deploy it to the cloud like AWS.

So, does it mean Cloud Native Applications will not be using Spring Boot but using the language designed by the various Clouds players ?

Cos recently I witnessed a online demo on using Lambda and it sort of uses AWS template that has most of the codes done ...but I have not studied it in details as I
am still struggling how the yaml files work with deployment in AWS.

Hope someone can throw some lights on the topic.

I'm not sure if "Cloud Native Application" with capital letters refers to a specific technology, but an application that is native to the cloud is really any application that is designed to be run by multiple servers simultaneously.

So yes, if a provider of cloud computing allows you to run a Spring Boot application, and that application was also designed to run that way, I would say it's a cloud native application.
