Why Focus on Cloud Native as the Foundation for Network Innovation?
Cloud native has emerged as the next generation in telco-optimized configurations that can truly deliver new paradigms like 5G and edge computing.
A cloud native approach utilizes the best practices of a cloud computing delivery model to build and run applications and services. It is the natural next phase of the industry's network transformation journey, unlocking the potential to meet exponential demands.
The benefits to cloud native—including application agility and flexibility, faster development, and modularity—are key drivers for the switch from legacy networks to fully cloud-based infrastructures.
Intel’s investments in hardware and software, platforms, and open source initiatives are enabling the delivery of cloud native solutions and are making disaggregation, automation, resiliency, and reliability possible.
Technical and marketing assistance is available for partners to enable their solution transition to cloud native offerings.
