Cloud4C Application Modernization on GCP assists enterprises in end-to-end implementation monitoring and maintaining their applications. The Cloud4C’s expertise combined with wide range of Google Cloud flexible and secure services will be the perfect solution for enterprises to align their business goals with the future. As part of the application modernization, we use different approaches and techniques which includes the following:

Remove: Filter out existing datacenter workloads, apps that are redundant and doesn’t contribute significantly to modern operations. Such redundancies could lead to unnecessary cloud wastage and cloud sprawl, shooting up expenses if not addressed adequately.

Retain: Retain mission-critical on-prem systems, workloads, resources that are working diligently and cannot function effectively on the adopted cloud ecosystem. This ensures the deployment of a hybrid architecture that works best in all scenarios.

Replatform: Replatform key assets and applications that must be migrated to the cloud ecosystem but isn’t possible owing to outdated backend platforms and infra. Such replatforming assists enterprises to take the primary step towards app modernization on the cloud and leverage the latter’s capabilities to the fullest.

Rehost: Also known as “Lift & Shift,” is one of the commonly used approaches to move the applications to cloud. In simple terms, it means, the application are moved to Google with very few changes to the infrastructure as a whole. The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) helps enterprises to decrease their operating expenditure, make space in their data center and quicken the migration process.

Repurchase: Repurchasing involves changing the underlying app, infra licensing models to adopt a cloud-based billing approach. Usually availed as-a-service, such an initiative helps streamline expenses and seamlessly manage, maintain, upgrade, and integrate the existing IT stack.

Refactor: Refactoring means tailoring an application to suit the cloud environment. As part of refactoring, we modify the application itself and a part of the code to ensure that use of cloud-native functions. For refactoring, we will be moving to a PaaS model which includes the Google Wireframe Modernization. Refactoring helps developers to re-use the framework, containers and languages that they invested in.

The current enterprise IT stack is a hyper-complex ecosystem. More often than not, firms embed multiple platforms, devices, assets, applications across a mix of on-prem, third-party, end-point, and multi-cloud landscapes. Hence, it’s imperative to have a universal framework wherein applications can be seamlessly transferred, deployed, and run across assets and landscapes without the need to separately customize for every single environment. That’s where containerization, orchestration, and workload interoperability come in and the best way to deploy, scale, and manage containers across multiple ecosystems is via the Google Kubernetes Engine, augmented with Cloud4C’s advanced Kubernetes-as-a-Service managed capabilities.

    Infrastructure Modernization refers to the migration, optimization, and rearchitecting of mission-critical assets, resources, networks, servers, VMs, applications on the cloud.

    Legacy on-prem systems that could not be migrated or synced could be replaced by virtual counterparts availed from the cloud on an as-a-service model with disrupting business as usual.

  • What is cloud modernization?

    -

    Cloud modernization refers to architecting, optimizing, and transitioning an enterprise’s existing cloud experience to a new one if needed. This often requires a thorough assessment of the cloud’s existing landscape and the underlying infra, realizing the redundancies and functional loopholes, and designing a better cloud architecture concurrent to the enterprise’s core needs and objectives.

  • What is cloud application modernization?

    -

    Business applications form the crux of an enterprise’s daily operations. This includes ERP, CRM, HRMS, Sales Apps, DevOps applications, Analytical Applications, and more. Instead of running these applications from on-prem servers, enterprises can opt to move them to the cloud for better performance, availability, scalability, and cost effectiveness. Often this also demands module redesigns, reconfigurations, containerizations, rearchitecting underlying platforms to help the apps run best on the cloud.
