The move to cloud computing is causing a shift in application architecture. Consequently, many enterprises are evolving business apps tethered to inflexible stacks that don’t support automation.
VMware has a proven, pragmatic method to accelerate your app modernization. First, we help you adopt Kubernetes and container technologies. Then, we collaborate with your team to evolve your applications and deliver lasting change with a modern software supply chain.
We’ll start with targeted analysis to determine an ideal set of apps with low technical risk and high business value.
Retire proprietary application servers in favor of cloud offerings based on widely adopted open-source projects.
Transition monolithic systems into microservices that can boost feature velocity across your development organization.
As we move those revamped apps into production, you’ll build a cookbook of patterns to streamline and accelerate future migrations.
Identify gaps in your infrastructure lifecycle and replace manual processes with automation to reduce risk.
Your modern software supply chain starts with Kubernetes, the orchestration system that runs your containerized apps atop virtual machines. Your chosen runtime should conform to upstream open-source standards and include cluster lifecycle management.Explore Tanzu Kubernetes Grid
Once you’ve got a reliable Kubernetes runtime on your clouds of choice, you’ve completed the first step. Now, it’s time to connect logging, monitoring, and ingress services to your deployment. Elasticsearch, Prometheus, Grafana, and NGINX are popular tools for these tasks.Grab Components with Tanzu Application Catalog Tanzu Application Catalog
To deliver your code to production regularly, you’ll need code stored in source control, like Subversion or GitLab. Then, you’ll need a way to build a container from your source control, and to deploy the container to your production environment running Kubernetes.Read the State of Kubernetes 2020 Report
