Cloud native applications can create enormous business growth and value in a very short amount of time. Take Instagram as one example company. It took only two years to get a net asset value of 1 billion USD. However, cloud-native applications are often characterized by a highly implicit technological dependency on hosting cloud infrastructures. What happens if you are forced to leave your cloud service provider? What happens if your cloud is burning? The project Cloud TRANSIT investigates how to design cloud-native applications and services to reduce technological dependencies on underlying cloud infrastructures.
