IBM Cloud Podcast Miniseries: Everything Cloud-Native

3 min read

By: Ian Lynch and Stephen Choquette

Introducing a seven-episode miniseries from the IBM Cloud Podcast that will cover all things cloud-native.

Cloud-native applications are designed to capitalize on the scalability and flexibility of the cloud. In contrast to traditional, monolithic applications, cloud-native applications are built using multiple, independent microservices that are deployed in cloud environments.

The IBM Cloud Podcast is excited to introduce a seven-episode podcast miniseries that will cover all things cloud-native. Download episodes 1-6 below, and check back over the next few weeks as we release the remaining part.

Episode 1: Everything Cloud-Native

In this first episode of the IBM Cloud Podcast miniseries on all things cloud-native, we chat with Briana Frank, Director of Product Management for IBM Cloud, who helps set the scene around cloud-native builds and processes today. Briana provides some clarity on what cloud-native actually means and how we can remove complexities from business. We talk about examples, use cases, and how cloud-native is more than just an agile approach to application development.

Episode 2: Running Kubernetes in Production

Cloud-native development takes an agile approach to creating new applications. Using a DevOps-based continuous delivery model, software development teams can quickly, iteratively, and automatically add new features to an application.

In this, the second part to our miniseries on all things cloud-native, we chat with an intelligent and highly technical Distinguished Engineer from the IBM Cloud Kubernetes team, Dan Berg, about what it is really like to run Kubernetes in production. Dan tells us about the secret sauce to success and what you need to do to be a part of it.

Episode 3: Culture Shift

In the third part to our miniseries on everything cloud-native, we chat with two IBM execs we've heard from earlier—Briana Frank and Dan Berg—about the cultural shift required to transform an organization to producing cloud-native applications.

Episode 4: Organising to be Successful

In the fourth part of our cloud-native miniseries, we chat again with Briana Frank and Dan Berg about the right way to begin building with cloud-native, including jump-starting your idea with the IBM Garage. Briana and Dan talk about the importance of organising your teams, providing strong leadership, and having clearly defined roles and responsibilities. We talk around methodologies and practises, but mostly, keeping it simple works.

Episode 5: Removing the silos with microservices

In this fifth part to our miniseries on all things cloud-native, we chat with Chris Rosen about microservices architecture. We talk around how this style of architecture improves time to market and gives an all-around better app quality. Chris tells us why it is so much needed in today world, the best ways to get yourself building, and helps us to understand its power using real-life examples.

Episode 6: Gaining advantages with the technology

In this sixth part to our miniseries on all things cloud-native, we chat again with Dan Berg, this time about how he, as a coder, uses the technologies to his advantage. In other words, Dan tells the secret to being wildly successful in today's technology-infused world and why it cannot happen without the use of cloud-native.
