The DEVOPS Conference

Title: MIGRATION OF A CONTAINERIZED LEGACY APPLICATION TO THE CLOUD

Learn how to migrate a containerized legacy application in the cloud, and how it improves your DevOps. You will get a demo on using cloud resources, e.g. K8s cluster and their provisioning.

A classic legacy desktop application is usually not designed to operate in a cloud services environment, not even as a container. But you can’t refuse adopting cloud if you want to continue to be successful and open up new business areas. That’s why we took the plunge with our MS Windows-based monolith, whose development began more than two decades ago. The start of the changeover raised more questions than answers. Besides the architectural challenge, we also had to face an organizational challenge: From waterfall to agile software development using an enterprise framework.

In this presentation we will go through the steps we took regarding technology/implementation (and why), how far have we already come, which tasks are still pending, and what obstacles we have had to overcome.

Migration of a containerized legacy application to the cloud

A classic legacy desktop application is usually not designed to operate in the cloud, not even as a container. Nevertheless, you can’t refuse cloud adoption and the need for scaling your resources on demand - if you want to continue to be successful and open up new business areas. That’s why we took the plunge with our MS Windows-based monolith, whose development began more than two decades ago. The start of the changeover raised more questions than answers.

• Which (new) technology services will be included in our technology stack?
• How far will we come within a year?
• Who is the main driver regarding our efforts towards to cloud migration and scalability?
• Which obstacles will we face?

This is (among others) what we are trying to answer.
