Application Replatforming

Application Replatforming

Upgrade your legacy applications to fit in with your digital transformation platformAdoption of Cloud Foundry or any other cloud-native platform not only marks a strategic shift to building and deploying brand-new microservices applications, but also promises a brand-new life for your legacy monoliths.

Replatforming enables your existing business-critical applications to leverage the platform’s containerized runtime environment and production-grade capabilities for:

  • Elastic scalability in response to the growing load
  • Life-cycle management and monitoring through the platform
  • High availability and self-healing capabilities
  • Accelerated time-to-value and reasonable velocity of new features development
  • Modernization from commercial relational databases to horizontally scalable open source datastores and services

Application Replatforming Services

Altoros will work with the customer to identify the apps that can benefit the most from migration to the cloud—and streamline the migration process down the road.

Application portfolio analysis and evaluation gives you an idea of the overall effort/cost/duration to migrate the apps to a cloud-native platform

  • Identification of key workloads that need to be migrated to the cloud
  • Cost optimization strategy development
  • Evaluation of the app’s compatibility with the 12-factor app methodology (state management, configuration, etc.)
  • Identification of bottlenecks that could impede the migration process

Develop an action plan focusing on applications, which migration to the cloud will bring the most tangible impact for business

Develop a strategy plan based on application portability:

  • Rehost: port the app to a platform without customization and reconfiguration
  • Replatform: migrate the application using only minor tweaks to configuration and source code
  • Re-architect: remodel the app architecture using a Domain Driven Design approach and decouple application services
  • Retain applications: identify legacy applications, which are not worth the time efforts

Prepare and deploy application portfolio to a cloud-native environment

  • Iterative application refactoring according to the 12-factor principles towards a cloud-native microservices pattern
  • Application encapsulation to containers
  • Setup of CI/CD pipelines to enable full test coverage, automation, resiliency, and maintainability

The platform provisions applications with everything they need to run in the cloud, from common application dependencies to on-demand backing services

  • Application deployment to a cloud environment: Cloud Foundry, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, and etc
  • Platform tuning and customization
  • High Availability provisioning
  • Review: performance testing and verification of the fact that the infrastructure and all components are deployed and configured correctly

Monolith-to-Microservices Restructuring

The monolith-to-microservices restructuring is performed as incremental refactoring of legacy applications either through adding new microservices to the existing application or through turning existing modules within the monolith into a standalone microservices-based app.
Application Restructuring

Business-value driven application porting to the cloud-native architecture:

  • Determining the features that need to be turned cloud native in the first place;
  • Extracting logic from the existing application to base a standalone microservice on;
  • Cloud-native application architecture design and microservices coding.
Knowledge Transfer

Step-by-step guidance on the cloud-native application architecture principles, cloud-native development, and DevOps operations will help our clients:

  • Avoid common mistakes and optimize benefits from the cloud-native platform implementation;
  • Address gaps in the platform adoption at all implementation stages;
  • Increase customer satisfaction and boost employee loyalty to the platform.
