To support your application modernization journey, you will need to architect your applications for the future to address a new set of customer requirements, which don’t include the cost and proprietary restrictions of commercial database licenses. These modern applications need fast, hyperscale, cloud-native databases that support millisecond latency, process millions of requests per second, and scale to support millions of users anywhere in the world. CloudArt can help accelerate your application modernization on Amazon Aurora so you can drop old-guard commercial database dependencies, reduce costs, drive greater business value, and reach new customers with AWS.
In terms of speed to market, ability to experiment and create new revenue streams, with traditional or legacy applications becomes a challenge at best. When deploying new features and working off a monolithic application with many dependencies. It takes months of testing, quality assurance (QA) and development cycles. The depency of operatings system libraries and files become a hindrance to productivity. Legacy systems and applications leave very little room for innovation and instead monopolize employee time for administrative tasks and “keeping the lights on”.
How To Modernize
How you modernize depends on the problem to be solved. There is no one size fits all approach. Should you containerize with AWS ECS for EC2 which provides a managed tier of the control plane? Or maybe use (2) AWS ECS Fargate a fully serverless approach to containerization? How about (3) AWS EKS providing a managed Kubernetes control plane? Should there be portions of the application running on AWS Lambda a functions-as-a-service model?
Is re-hosting, re-coding and re-building the application the correct approach?
Modernizing an application and breaking it down into smaller loosly-coupled components. Also known as micro-services offers great benefits. Upgrading, fixing or patching microservices becomes a manageable task.
