How does CloudHedge help in migrating to cloud in days? It’s a simple four step process:
Step 1 - Assess and Analyze
Assess and analyze the application server using CloudHedge’s Discover tool. It intelligently scans through the metadata including setup, processes, packages, and configurations. All we need is a read-only SSH access of the application server.
Step 2 - Workload Analysis
Based on the workload analysis, our tool recommends options to either Containerize or convert to serverless function or to Upsize or Downsize workload, or scheduled provisioning/ de-provisioning.
Step 3 - Containerize
For this post, let’s choose to Containerize. Filter through the services which need to be containerized. Attach probe to conduct detailed discovery, ideally, run through a regression cycle.
CloudHedge automates creation of Docker file(s). Depending upon the application and its environment, Docker file(s) may need few tweaks. Create a Docker image (or CloudHedge will assist in creating a Docker image) and add it to specific Docker registry.
Step 4 - Create Application Blueprint & Deploy
Create an application blueprint and deploy the containers on a Hosts or Cluster setup onto a cloud of your choice (AWS / Google Cloud / Azure or Private).
