Application Replatforming

Adoption of Cloud Foundry or any other cloud-native platform not only marks a strategic shift to building and deploying microservices-based applications but also gives a brand-new life for your legacy monoliths.

Business value of migration to the cloud

Through replatforming of legacy applications, business-critical processes leverage a containerized runtime environment and production-grade capabilities for:

  • elastic scalability in response to the growing load
  • development life-cycle management and platform monitoring
  • high availability and self-healing features
  • accelerated time-to-value and reasonable velocity of new features development
  • modernization from commercial relational databases to horizontally scalable open-source data stores and services

Application replatforming services

Altoros helps to identify the apps, which can benefit the most from migration to the cloud, and streamline the modernization process down the road.

Application migration to the cloud

Our cloud engineers help enterprises to upgrade and replatform legacy apps to meet core business goals in digital transformation.

  • Portfolio Analysis
  • Strategy Development
  • Replatforming
  • Deployment

Application portfolio analysis

  • 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 impede the migration process

Migration strategy development

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

Replatforming and re-architecting

  • 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

Deployment to a cloud environment

  • Application deployment to a cloud environment: Cloud Foundry, VMware Tanzu Application Service (formerly Pivotal platform), Kubernetes, etc.
  • Platform tuning and customization
  • High availability provisioning
  • Infrastructure review: performance testing and verification of the fact that the infrastructure and all the 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.

Application restructuring

Business value-driven migration 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 enablement

Knowledge transfer

Step-by-step guidance on the cloud-native development, architecture approach, and DevOps operations will help our customers to:

  • 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
