Lately, the public cloud services market has created one of the biggest disruptions in the tech market. In fact, as per Forrester Data, public cloud services forecasted a 22% CAGR in the public cloud market from 2016 to 2020. In addition, Gartner projected the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to grow 35.9% by end of 2018 to reach $40.8 billion. Looking at the potential of the cloud market and the benefits associated, right now would be the apt time to migrate from monolithic to the cloud.
Problems with Monolithic – Packaging the entire application into a single artefact and making it run as one process will eventually burden the architecture. Let us look at a few problems faced by monolithic applications which are adding up over the years.
What are Cloud Native Applications?
Cloud Native can be best described as a container-based environment used for developing applications. These applications are built with services which are packaged in independent containers and efficiently deployed as microservices. A step further, the applications are managed on an elastic infrastructure through Agile DevOps processes having continuous delivery workflows.
Kubernetes is one of the preferred platforms for running workloads which function as cloud-native applications. Developers only need to follow the best practices of designing and developing the application as a set of microservices and deploy them in independent containers. Kubernetes, an open source container-orchestration platform ensures high-end automated deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications.
Top 5 Reasons for Considering Cloud-Native Applications
Migrating from Monolithic to Cloud-Native – Considering the options at hand, migrating from monolithic to cloud-native was one of the toughest jobs. However, by bringing CloudHedge into the picture, the migration process is simplified as we consider an automated path to make the shift instead of a manual approach which consumes time and resources.
Using AI, we perform analysis of existing applications and further automatically recommend and transform monolith applications to cloud-native. CloudHedge also manages to reduce OpEx after migrating to cloud by not just Lifting & Shifting but by refactoring and containerizing applications automatically. The process which usually takes weeks is bottled down to a matter of hours. Contact us today and schedule an appointment to discuss how we can help in transforming your monolithic applications to cloud-native ones.
