Simplify and accelerate your cloud application migration with a systematic, disciplined approach.
A cloud operating model provides tremendous opportunities for enterprise IT organizations to become more agile and cost efficient. In addition to using cloud-based IT resources for new projects, significant benefits can be achieved by migrating legacy application portfolios to the cloud. However, many IT professionals are struggling to overcome the complexities of selecting, analyzing, and migrating existing applications portfolios to private and/or public clouds.
ServiceMesh’s Agility Platform provides a solution for cloud application migration that includes profiling, scoring, and migrating existing applications and virtual machines to fully governed hybrid cloud environments. Combined with ServiceMesh Advisory Service, the Agility Platform can be used to reduce the complexity of cloud application migration, enabling customers to rapidly prioritize and migrate their best-suited application workloads to the cloud.
For IT Organizations Migrating Existing Applications to the Cloud
Application Scoring and Prioritization. Automatically score application workloads using criteria and ranking algorithms that can be customized to reflect your business needs. Import application definitions from your CMDB, prioritize migration candidates, and visually compare them with customizable charts.
Automated Virtual Machine Discovery and Onboarding. Automatically discover and import existing virtual machines deployed by third-party tools and enforce policies for governance, security, and lifecycle management.
Customizable Migration Approval Workflows. Streamline migration approval workflows with Agility Platform’s workflow automation engine while integrating with your existing tools and processes.
Model and Optimize Applications for the Cloud. One size does not fit all when it comes to cloud application migration. For some applications a simple “lift and shift” is appropriate, while for other applications re-architecting to a cloud-native design is the best approach. Agility Platform gives you the versatility to address practically any migration scenario, and allows you to optimize cloud applications with cloud-portable multi-tier application blueprints, compound auto-scaling policies, workloads portable across heterogeneous clouds, and more.
Application-Centric Governance and Security. During migration planning and analysis, Agility Platform captures policy parameters that are used later in the lifecycle for policy-based governance enforcement, including workload sizing and placement, security parameters, performance thresholds, and regulatory restrictions.
Rapid Time-to-Value. Agility Platform integrates with CMDBs, VM resource managers, and a variety of other tools in the enterprise IT ecosystem to streamline analysis and migration efforts. ServiceMesh also provides advisory services and training to assist in migration planning, application remediation, and capacity planning.
Application Migration as Part of the Broader Cloud Workload Lifecycle. Following migration, you’ll be able to manage and control all aspects of your cloud-based workloads including policy-based governance, on-demand self-service provisioning, performance monitoring and resource consumption, and more.
