Easy Way To Containerize .NET & Java Apps - Zuggand

March 1, 20210

Modernize With Easy Containerization

Migrating to the cloud is a good first step, but if that’s all you do, you are really missing out!  Vanilla cloud is just barely a first step into what’s possible!  You hear and read all about all the amazing benefits of the cloud, but modernizing your application portfolio can be challenging.  


Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an automated tool that would inventory your application portfolio, extract everything from your existing apps, package it all up and make it easy to deploy containers?


Well things just got a whole lot easier and more exciting!  AWS just released App2Container (A2C) for everyone to use!  We’ve been using it over the last few months to help our customers take their .NET & Java apps and automatically containerizing them and it’s fantastic!

Easy? Yep – 4 Step Process!

We’re not trying to make it sound too simple but here’s the high-level process:


  1. Discovery all your apps and analyze their dependencies
  2. Extract your apps with dependencies & create Docker images
  3. Create necessary configurations & DevOps pipelines
  4. Deploy your modernized app containers in AWS


App2Container is extremely helpful in automating so much of the modernization process for your .NET and Java apps.  And we know that we have way oversimplified the process in these 4 simple steps, but there has truly never been a better time to start modernizing your portfolio!


Modernizing is Better With Friends

Why do all the modernization heavy-lifting alone?  Everything is so much more fun when you can do it with friends, especially when your friends bring gifts to the party!  Yes, we’re being a little cheeky here but seriously, Zuggand is an AWS Advanced consulting partner focused 100% on helping people like you modernize using AWS.  We work extremely close with AWS to help customers accelerate cloud adoption and business innovation.  


The best part is, not only do we have the skills and experience to help you modernize your Java and .NET apps to use containers, we also have access to some very enticing funding programs directly from AWS!  So if you are ready to pilot the AWS App2Continer process, reach out and let’s do this!
