12 Factor Design for Cloud Native Apps



At the recent Discover London 2015 event, Arun Jacob (@arunxjacob), Director, Product Management, HPE Helion presented “Cloud apps, from here to there.”  The session focused on the needs of software development in the modern era of application development for the cloud. Arun highlighted a new development methodology called “The Twelve-Factor App.”

This methodology is designed for software-as-a-service apps that:

  • Use declarative formats for setup automation
  • Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system
  • Suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms
  • Minimize divergence between development and production
  • Scale-up without significant changes in tooling, architecture, or development practices

In the video of Arun’s talk, he highlights the key issues in the 12 factors providing guidance in how to approach building new cloud-native apps for the modern era of software development.
