By taking advantage of cloud-native technologies, either serverless or container-based, organizations can instantly benefit from the scalability and reliability offered by the cloud while reducing costs.
CRE8IVELOGIX uses the 5A engagement methodology and 6R modernization strategy to transform legacy applications into well-architected and modern platforms.
Traditionally organizations have been running their applications in on-prem environments. However, cloud platforms offer tremendous benefits over traditional data centers. There are multiple strategies available for application modernizations depending on business needs. The approach we choose depends on the complexity and urgency of the transformation and the time and effort needed for modernization. We have the expertise and experience to help you choose the right strategy.
Suppose the application running in an on-prem environment is containerized. In that case, it will be best to use container technologies like Elastic Container Service - ECS or Elastic Kubernetes Service - EKS when modernizing your applications. Suppose there is a need to re-architect the application. In that case, it is advisable to start with serverless technology whenever possible and only move to containers if serverless technologies do not serve the needs of the application and business. Serverless applications are more cost-effective, offer more agility, and are easier to scale and manage.
Some of the serverless technologies supported in AWS are Lambda, API Gateways, DynamoDB, SQS, SNS, etc.
Serverless platforms offer the following advantages.
Serverless platforms are spread across multiple Availability Zones by default, so they are highly available out of the box.
Serverless-based AWS services are designed to be scalable without doing much extra work.
There is no need to over-provision when using serverless services, as these platforms scale up and down based on the usage. And organizations pay for only what they use; therefore, serverless-based services are more cost-effective.
AWS manages infrastructures running on serverless platforms; therefore the operating systems are automatically patched for vulnerabilities. This saves organizations time and effort.
Serverless architectures are easy to set up. Since there is no management involved, organizations can be more agile in delivering features and reducing time to market.
We have AWS certified professionals who can help asses your modernization needs and advice on best possible route for your journey.
