Whether you are thinking about migrating to the cloud, or already in the cloud, you should be asking if it’s time to modernize. It’s time to shred your legacy ways and licenses and free up your resources to start innovating.
But what does it mean to modernize your applications? Just like everything in technology, everyone seems to have a different definition and getting on the same page is sometimes the hardest part. That’s where Zuggand’s Modernize Accelerator can help you! We help you understand AWS offerings so you can leverage containers, microservices and managed capabilities that best fit your needs.
The six Rs is one of the most popular approaches for creating your cloud migration strategy. For each of your applications, make a specific decision to Rehost (migrate) to the cloud, Replatform (upgrade / change the Operating System), Refactor (modify / improve your applications), Repurchase (move your application functionality to a third party, preferably a cloud-based SaaS solution), Retain (keep on-premises for a specific reason) or Retire (sunset / shutdown).
At the heart of the Zuggand Modernize Accelerator program is leveraging containers, microservices and managed capabilities to modernize your applications. AWS provides modernization products in many categories: compute, storage, data stores, API proxy, application integration, orchestration, analytics and developer tools.
We take a systematic approach to help you define your modernization strategy and architecture, complete an optimization assessment, ensure you have the optimal infrastructure foundation and validate the modernization approach on one of your applications!
Absolutely! This is perfect for organizations that are just starting to explore and understand what modernization would look like for their operations. It’s also perfect for organizations that want to turn up the dial and move fast! AWS has some amazing programs going on right now that makes this more affordable than you’d think! Now is a great time to accelerate!
To get started, we work with you to whiteboard your new architecture, identify a simplistic application candidate for modernization and create a high-level roadmap / plan.
Zuggand and AWS will perform an automated assessment that provides consumption data, trend analysis, recommended AWS instance resizing and pricing estimates.
Following AWS best practices, we will setup your modern AWS infrastructure with core capabilities to support containers, microservices and managed capabilities.
After identifying a qualified workload, we will migrate it and convert it to containers.
Following AWS practices, we will complete the process by conducting a Well-Architected Review and remediating the findings.
