Introduction:

Cloud-native technologies are becoming the preferred way to modernize applications at scale for enterprises going cloud. Large firms are seeking enterprise container platforms that accelerate and simplify the development and operations of cloud-native apps with resiliency, manageability, and observability via full-stack cloud-native capabilities. While Kubernetes has become the backbone of multicloud innovation, vendors of public cloud container platforms — i.e., public cloud platforms with available container services — have made strategic investments to strengthen cloud-native capabilities in the past two years. Along with cloud-native infrastructure and operations services for distributed workloads across hybrid and edge cloud environments, PCCPs help developers modernize apps by leveraging the synergy between a vendor’s cloud-native development services and other development services on its public cloud platforms.
