OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
In this briefing, Red Hat's Zohaib Khan (@zeebluejay), Practice Lead and Manager PaaS Community of Practice at Red Hat discusses a structured approach modernizing your portfolio of applications and how to jumpstart your application development migration to cloud native.
In this session, we covered the 3 main patterns from modernizing your portfolio of applications: Lift and Shift, Augmentation and Complete Rewrites.
Lift and Shift:
Containerize existing components
Deploy them on a PaaS
Keep external integrations and data on legacy
Legacy applications have to be well written and suited
Augmenting with New Layers
Legacy remains intact
New layer enables new capabilities
Deploy on PaaS
New integration points between legacy and new layers
Complete ReWrites where:
Legacy is totally replaced
New interfaces and data
Use PaaS to run
Some data and features can be re-wrapped, but mostly are retired.
If your development team is looking to jumpstart move to the cloud, this briefing will give you a lot of helpful insights into how to make the move. Zohaib shared a number of real world case studies and armed the audience with all the tools for making the case to management for making the move to cloud native as well.
