The book “Cloud Native Architecture” explains how to plan, manage, build, and run monoliths and microservices in an agnostic, scalable, and highly available cloud-native runtime such as Kubernetes. This is done by effectively applying DevOps principles through the tactical use of CNCF tools. 

You will start by learning about cloud-native technology's history and business reasons. This will help you understand its five key pillars: open-source, containers, distributed architectures, operational benefits, and DevOps integration. We will introduce a framework for adopting cloud-native best practices, focusing on technical and cultural changes. You will learn how to adapt processes like DevOps, Chaos Engineering, Automation, and API First. We will cover automating infrastructure with tools like Prometheus and Grafana, using Kubernetes for container management, and designing applications with microservices. Practical exercises will include setting up CI/CD pipelines with Jenkins and ensuring Kubernetes security. 

By the end of this book, you will be empowered to navigate the Cloud-Native landscape confidently, equipped with the knowledge and practical skills to design, develop, deploy, and migrate applications for the modern cloud era.


  • Learn about cloud computing's origins and business motivations, exploring various interpretations emphasizing flexibility, integration, and efficiency.
  • Establish a plan for cloud success, focusing on culture, teamwork, skill development, and adapting organizational processes like Agile and DevOps.
  • Utilize this plan to develop and manage cloud-based applications securely and efficiently on Kubernetes for optimal performance.


  • Learn about cloud native's background and its impact on culture and processes.
  • Understand Kubernetes concepts, components, and best practices with an agnostic framework.
  • Design and build monoliths incrementally on Kubernetes following twelve-factor app principles.
  • Transition from monoliths to microservices using specific tools for lifecycle management.
  • Address Kubernetes security during application development and deployment.


This book is for developers, architects, and solution consultants who are now exploring cloud-native architecture principles for design and development with Agile and DevOps to modernize existing applications or create brand-new cloud-native products.
