Learning Outcomes

Students understand the principles of architecting and engineering cloud-native systems. They are familiar with architectural opportunities and constraints that the cloud offers and imposes and are able to competently assess, select, and apply fitting technologies to meet given functional and non-functional requirements.


Cloud Native Architecture is about adapting software architectures to the cloud model and its opportunities and constraints. The cloud provides different services and programming and runtime models to meet non-functional requirements as opposed to traditional on-premises solutions that enable novel engineering approaches. A well-architected cloud-native system is elastic, observable, reslient, cost-efficient, and easily manageable through continuous software engineering methods and processes. This course covers respective principles, technologies, and application examples. Non-technical challenges such as organizational and management objectives as well as compliance to regulatory frameworks are also studied.
