From AI and ML to bespoke solutions, cloud service providers have been offering businesses an increasing number of options to deploy their applications in the cloud. Cloud-native applications, such as those offered by AWS, are becoming increasingly popular.

A Gartner report reflects a steady shift in IT spending towards cloud options as software expenditure is predicted to rise by 11.3% in 2023. Cloud-native applications, specifically those developed on AWS, are being adopted as they provide scalability and flexibility while reducing the cost of traditional IT infrastructure.

How to build cloud-native applications

It all starts with the architecture. Cloud-native applications are designed differently from traditional applications to leverage the best of the cloud’s technology to provide scalability, performance, and security. Cloud-native applications comprise microservices that run in a distributed cloud environment and can be managed independently. This allows them to be scaled quickly and easily as demand for the application grows.

How it works

There are three key steps to deploying an effective cloud-native application:

1. Designing the architecture.
Cloud-native applications must be designed to take advantage of the cloud’s core components. This means understanding how AWS CloudFormation, CloudWatch, CloudTrail, and CloudFront can be used to get the most out of the architecture.

2. Defining the components.
Cloud-native applications are built from a set of components. These include the application’s user interface, server-side logic, database and storage services, and other cloud services.

3. Setting the infrastructure.
Cloud-native applications are deployed to a cloud environment, such as Amazon EC2 or AWS CloudFormation. Once the infrastructure is set up, the application’s components can be deployed and tested.

Cloud Market Trends in The United States

• In 2023, the US will generate maximum revenue when it comes to the public cloud.

• Amazon, Google, and Microsoft lead the cloud services market in the US, owning 76% of the market.

• The multi-cloud strategy will grow in popularity and be a defining trend in cloud computing.

Cloud-native application benefits

The following are the benefits of deploying an effective cloud-native application:

Increased scalability
Cloud-native applications can easily scale up or down as demand for the application changes.

Increased efficiency
Cloud-native applications can be managed and maintained more easily than traditional applications. They are designed to leverage the best of the cloud’s technology, making them more efficient.

Reduced costs
Cloud-native applications are more cost-effective than traditional applications as they reduce the need for hardware and software licenses.

Improved security
Cloud-native applications are designed to leverage cloud security features, such as multi-factor authentication and encryption.


Cloud-native applications offer businesses a cost-effective, secure, and efficient way to deploy their applications in the cloud. They are designed to leverage the best of the cloud’s technology to provide scalability, performance, and security. AWS offerings are among the most popular cloud-native applications on the market. They provide businesses with a reliable and cost-effective way to deploy their applications in the cloud.
