  • The Continuum of Cloud Native Topologies
    In this white paper, John Morello, Chief Technology Officer at Twistlock, shares a helpful model of viewing the different cloud native technologies as a continuum, to address different scenarios and efficiently choose which combination of technologies work best for running different workloads. The continuum starts with bare metal and VMs on the left, continues into “light” hypervisors (like Canonical’s LXD), and extends into containers and services like AWS Fargate and then, ultimately, serverless. Technologies to the left provide the most isolation and control with the tradeoff of greater management and performance overhead. Those to the right facilitate more agile development and app density with the tradeoff of less control.
