Why cloud native is a gamechanger

Cloud native is one of those words that make some people shake their heads and call BS. In some contexts I am one of those people. It does however also have its place, because building solutions that are cloud centric does come with a number of benefits and enables solutions that were very hardif not impossible pre-cloud.

Sure, you can script the setup of a server from scratch, but it requires quite a bit of work, it takes time to execute and you still end up with an environment that requires updates and patching as soon as the script is a week old. In a cloud setup good practices, in the form of DevOps mainly using the CLI makes this very obtainable. Actually the current environment I am working with combines an ARM template and a few lines of script so we can spin up an entire environment in about 15 minutes. The only manual step is setting up the domain and SSL cert, but even that could be scripted if I wanted to.
