A native cloud application (NCA) is a type of computer software that natively utilizes services and infrastructure from cloud computing providers such as Amazon EC2, Force.com, or Microsoft Azure. NCAs exhibit a combined usage of the three fundamental technologies:
- Computational grid - loosely, e.g. MapReduce[failed verification]
- Data grids (e.g. distributed in-memory data caches)
- Auto-scaling on any managed infrastructure
