“Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production.”

Lift & Shift, a Big NO!

Across industries, cloud continues to be one of the fastest-growing segments of IT spend. With greater spend, comes the greater responsibility to invest budgets wisely, and a bigger impact if things go wrong. As a CTO, under the umbrella of app modernization – if you are simply lifting and shifting your apps from legacy to cloud your CFO would be banging your cabin’s door for a rational explanation on the rising operating costs once on cloud. To add, there is zero innovation by moving your app from an on-prem infrastructure to cloud, anyhow its just a simple drag-and-drop functionality provided by most public cloud providers which is not rocket science. 

Lean Containers

One of the crucial factors that will impact cloud adoption in 2020 is cost optimization. CloudHedge recognized the need for optimization early on and has the skills and tools to analyze operational data and find cost optimization opportunities. Many players offer containerization, but CloudHedge’s value proposition is not just automation of containers, but going a step further – automation through lean containerization. CloudHedge’s patented technology ensures the Transform tool to create lean containers instead of fat containers (VM to Containers) that consume a lot of resources post deployment.

Apart from these, there are other multiple benefits like – increased product quality, improved efficiency, enabling developers to focus on innovation and quality control that would have been previously wasted.

There’s a lot of debate about fat versus lean containerization. Experts say that there are many situations when one would think that fat containerization is actually not justifiable such as while connecting two or more processes, debugging your application, monitoring, performance, ease of deployment, and auditing. 

CloudHedge’s Automated Containerization

CloudHedge’s patented tools – Discover, Transform and Cruize analyze workload and prudently transform them into containers, keeping only those binaries and dependencies that are necessary. In fact, adopting lean containerization is a blessing because it gives you an opportunity to overhaul and trim your applications, and to gear up for a faster, leaner, and meaner performance.
