4 trends that will shape the cloud-native world in 2020

2019 was a pivotal year for the cloud native community, with lots of announcements that made it hard to get a clear view of what’s happening. But there are 4 key trends in the cloud space that will shape 2020. And if you take a step back, you’ll spot them. A big step back.
In June 2014, Google announces it is embracing Docker, and open-sourcing a new tool to manage compute workloads over large scale computing infrastructure. It is hailed as a revolution. Google Open Sources Its Secret Weapon in Cloud Computing,reads a Wired headline. The tool was to be named Kubernetes, and it would initiate a huge shift in cloud computing technologies and the birth of a massive community. It would also be instrumental in the war for cloud computing market share that Google, Microsoft, and Alibaba are waging against the dominant player Amazon Web Services. The promise of Kubernetes was simple. Docker made it easier to deliver standardized, portable software: put your code, libraries and configurations into a Docker container and then run it anywhere without minding the compute platform, as long as Docker is installed on it. Now you have a fleet of applications, packaged in a fleet of containers, that are running on a fleet of heterogeneous computers in data centers and cloud environments. Who is going to tell which container where to run? How is this heterogeneous hardware going to function as one unified computer to run your workload? That is called orchestration, and Kubernetes will do that for you.
