Cloud Native today is a thriving ecosystem of products driving innovation in many areas. But is proving to be quite complex, skills are limited, and dev teams are drowning in how, where, when, and even why to make use of it all.
Imagine a different DX: What if you only had to think about your business logic, public API, and how your domain data is structured, not worry about how to store and manage it? What if you could not only be serverless but become “databaseless” and forget about databases, storage APIs, and message brokers?
Instead, what if your data just existed wherever it needed to be, at the edge, in the cloud, or in your own private network—always there and available, always correct and consistent, injected into your services on an as-needed basis, automatically, timely, efficiently, and intelligently.
Services, powered by this "cloud to edge data plane" of app state can run efficiently anywhere: from the public cloud to 10,000s of PoPs out at the edge of the network, physically co-locating end-user, data, and processing, ensuring ultra-low latency and high throughput.
Sounds exciting? Let me show you how we made this vision a reality by building the Kalix Cloud to Edge Data Plane.
