Venkatesh Balakumar, founder and director of Amzu Technology and one of our Cloud Native: Blessing of SRE curse? event panellists shares his views on three popular questions of the evening.
Are there any areas that the large Cloud providers need to improve in their offerings to make themselves more accessible to start-ups looking to go Native?
Let me first go through some basic concepts all cloud providers provide. All big cloud providers provide Compute, Security (Identity and Access Management), Networking and Storage as default. These are the basic building blocks for most possible requirements, including what start-ups may need.
Apart from that, the start-ups know how to choose their required services that match their use-cases from the plethoric number of services provided by each big cloud provider. This is where the Cloud accelerator or incubator services come. Most cloud providers now provide these services to nurture start-up’s in their campus, or within the campus of their partners, and provide full support in utilising the best of their Cloud service to the start-ups.
