The truth is that few developers, testers, or administrators look forward to the migration of an application environment. It is typically a process associated with long hours, frustrating and hard to find errors, and all too often missed goals.
As we've demonstrated here, you can eliminate some, if not all of these problems, by adopting the patterns-based approach afforded by WebSphere CloudBurst.
WebSphere CloudBurst patterns provide you the ability to capture and save your middleware application environment and its configuration. These patterns can be deployed repeatedly with slight tweaks each time if necessary, thus ensuring you of consistent results. Add to that the ability to quickly clone and modify the topology or platform of a pattern without affecting the consistency of your applications and their configurations and you get the perfect balance of hardening and flexibility. Simply put, instead of the application migration process being an inhibitor within your business, WebSphere CloudBurst can turn that process into a competitive advantage.
