In my last post (read here), we saw how CloudHedge enables enterprises to execute the transformation of WebSphere ND on Linux Apps to WebSphere Liberty Container in a non-intrusive way. As an addition to the previous post, this one talks about transforming WebSphere ND on AIX to WebSphere Liberty containers using CloudHedge’s App Modernization platform.

  • Replatform WebSphere ND based applications running on AIX servers and Transform them into Linux based WebSphere Liberty Containers
  • CloudHedge supports automated detection and transformation of configuration like LDAP, Data Sources, Certificates & Messaging Queues into Liberty configuration (server.xml)
  • This new process is completely non-intrusive (does not require X-Ray probe and restart of WebSphere processes)
  • If several applications (EAR/WAR) are running on a single JVM, we can now detect and containerize each application into its own liberty container

This new functionality to the CloudHedge’s App Modernization Platform gives an edge while containerizing age-old legacy AIX WebSphere applications. Moreover, it empowers the enterprise to lower overhead costs and explore cloud-native applications and microservice using CloudHedge. To know how CloudHedge has implemented this feature in its Automated App Modernization Platform, simply fill-up the form and gain access to this technical walkthrough of the modernization process.
