Industry Trends cloud native

I attended SDN World Congress in The Hague a couple weeks ago and among many meetings there I had a conversation with David Snow, Principle Analyst for IP Services Infrastructure at Current Analysis.  We both agreed that “cloud native” has become a hot topic in the NFV world of late, and I was able to share our views on cloud native with him.  He has just published a blog post on this topic at https://networkmatter.com/2016/11/02/microservices-how-cloud-native-are-network-vendors-today/
