4 non-cloud-native app migration recommendations

Many evaluating whether to move existing apps, not built for the cloud, to a public cloud environment, but there is little information available as to the specifics – beyond, of course, the idea that most are using lift-and-shift tools rather than more cost-intensive complete rewrites.   

In an effort to uncover the process of non-cloud-native app migration in practice, Forrester Research conducted a global survey with 272 respondents to dig into cloud migrators’ drivers, challenges, and strategies. Read on to view those, as well as:

  • Factors you should examine before moving specific workloads
  • How to resolve security and staffing challenges
  • 4 recommendations for pros seeking to migrate existing workloads
  • And more

  • Boost your company's email migration capabilities

    The ability to move data quickly and seamlessly across organizations is crucial in the anywhere, anytime workforce of today. Fortunately, there’s a solution that can empower your customer’s email platform of choice to do just that.

    In this white paper, learn about how an on-demand data migration service can boost accessibility and collaboration for your customers. Utilizing an automated cloud solution, this service offers features such as:

    • Increased migration speeds, capable of migrating hundreds of terabytes in less than 48 hours
    • No deployment software necessary
    • And more

  • Moving Linux and Windows VMs from VMware to Red Hat Virtualization

    If the x86 virtualization market has evolved substantially, why are so many still relying on one or two proprietary virtualization products for their server virtualization infrastructure?

    Because a V2V migration can be challenging.

    However, there are now tools available that allow for V2V migration without manually recreating VMs from scratch – and that automatically convert and import VMs created on other systems.

    This invaluable whitepaper not only details one such tool, but it depicts the problems with NOT migrating, including having to:
    • Rely on a single infrastructure vendor
    • Upgrade to more costly versions before deploying advanced features
    • Layer security on top of the hypervisor and/or operating system – instead of within the kernel itself
    • Account for a lower threshold for max vCPUs per VM

    And that just scratches the surface!

    Download your copy today for insight into the benefits of migrating, and the steps required to move, Linux and Windows VMs from proprietary virtualization environments to open source alternatives.
