Each cloud model offers specific features and functionalities and understanding the way it can match your organizations' needs is crucial. Astadia’s automated cloud migration solution safely migrates any application to any cloud infrastructure, be it public, private, or hybrid.
In the digital transformation race, the growth of the cloud marketplace is reshaping both technology and business ecosystems. It disrupts industries, remodels economies, and transforms the way we work, produce, and consume. For many organizations, agility, sustainability, efficiency, and enhanced customer experience will no longer be a competitive advantage but the condition to surviving a fast-evolving marketplace. Regardless of the type of cloud – be it public, private, hybrid, or a combination - moving applications to the cloud is inevitable.
Astadia offers any application solution we deliver to work on all of the popular Cloud Platforms. This includes AWS, Azure, Google, Oracle, IBM and others. Many IBM and Unisys mainframe applications may be Replatformed, or Refactored, depending upon the client’s requirements.
In the case of programming languages such as COBOL, a Replatform option is very popular. This may be followed in a phase 2 plan where the COBOL code is Refactored to a popular modern language such as Java or C#.NET. Or, an application may be Refactored directly from the mainframe source platform, to a target Cloud. An example of a direct Refactor migration would be moving off a proprietary programming language and database, like Software AG’s Adabas & Natural, and other similar platforms. In cases like mainframe Assembler languages, there are emulators available, but generally speaking, a direct Refactor approach would be recommended in almost every case. The automatic transformation of application source code, along with database transformation, makes the Astadia platform a powerful and unique capability.
All popular relational platforms are supported on the target Cloud. This includes Db2 LUW, Azure SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and others. Standard file management systems are available for sequential data processing.
Test Automation is an extremely important phase of any migration, prior to a “Go Live” decision, and beyond. Astadia has advanced TA capabilities. This platform improves the time and effort of IT staff, as well as ensuring a higher software quality result. This TA infrastructure may be established at release point, then maintained into the future as the application is enhanced and maintained.
Deployments to the Cloud Are Accelerating
“The rapid pace of innovation in cloud infrastructure and platform services (CIPS) makes cloud the de facto platform for new digital services and existing traditional workloads alike, which is why 40% or all enterprise workloads will be deployed in CIPS by 2023, up from only20% in 2020” – according to Gartner’s predictions.
Only pay for the resources you use, not excess capacity like mainframes.
Manage IT costs according to your business needs and objectives.
Get the additional processing power you need. Scale-up with minimum effort and investment, and scale-down when necessary.
Great for “peak load” processing requirements: month-end, quarter-end, year-end processing.
Increase data storage and processing capacity.
Get faster data transfer and easier access to analytics to extract actionable business insights.
Meet your customers’ rising expectations by rapidly responding with innovative products and services.
By implementing DevOps, it’s possible to have multiple releases per day.
