As technology continues to advance, and mobile, Internet of Things (IOT) and web applications solidify themselves as “must-haves” for businesses, it’s becoming nearly impossible to escape the cloud conversation. In fact, I’d be willing to bet you’ve at least considered adopting a cloud strategy at some point. However, even though there are many benefits to the cloud, such as more space, lower costs and faster deployment times, there’s also the fear of putting your functioning applications at risk by moving them. After all, the saying goes: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
What if I told you that you can adopt a cloud strategy without having to put your existing applications at risk? What if you could optimize the investment in your existing on-premises WebSphere applications by moving them to the cloud? Well, now you can. That’s right, with IBM WebSphere Application Server on cloud. WebSphere applications can be actually moved to the cloud in a matter of hours without changing them.
The “lift and shift” method
How is this possible? In short, it’s thanks to a method known as the “lift and shift” together with IBM tools and techniques. With these proven tools and techniques you can “lift and shift” your existing applications, topologies and configurations to IBM WebSphere on cloud. There’s no need to refactor your applications or develop new skills. You can effectively deploy your existing applications to the cloud without the fear of needing to rewrite them. This is the fastest and least risky solution. It allows your existing applications to benefit from cloud economics while your new cloud-native applications can benefit from speed to market. This is the best of both worlds. There’s no need to refactor all of those existing application assets to run as cloud native applications. Move them over and benefit from the cloud today instead of waiting for years to refactor them all.
