Does Cloud Native Mean Container Native? - James Bottomley, IBM Research

In the few years since containers rose to prominence, there has been
much confusion about what containers are and whay they do for the
cloud. This talk will try to unpick the separate concepts of cloud
native, container native (and even container native bare metal) and
explain where they fit into the pantheon. Although today it is true
to say that Cloud Native methodologies cannot realistically be
implemented without container technology, becuase of the dependence on
container image formats, this talk will explore whether this is
importand (do you need to understand containers to deliver cloud
native) and will this always remain true or, as current trends
indicate, there may be other implementation technologies that are also
capable of capturing the cloud native banner.

Attendees will learn the difference between the terms cloud native and
container native (and what container native bare metal means). What
containers are, how they work and how they differ from other
virtualization technologies. And finally we will look at some future
looking technologies like lightweight virtual machines, and how they
might bring the best of both worlds to cloud native.
