In this progress report, we would like to highlight various aspects of the transition of our containerized legacy application to the cloud
A classic legacy desktop application is usually not designed to operate in a cloud services environment, not even as a container.
Nevertheless, you can’t refuse cloud adoption if you want to continue to be successful and open up new business areas.
That’s why we took the plunge with our MS Windows-based monolith, whose development began more than two decades ago.
The start of the changeover raised more questions than answers. Besides the architectural challenge, we also had to face an organizational challenge: From waterfall to agile software development using an enterprise framework.
• Which steps regarding to the technology/implementation have we taken and why?
• How far have we already come?
• Which tasks are still pending?
• What about the obstacles, we’ve faced?
This is what we are trying to answer.
In our workshop session, we will work together to gain a basic understanding of container orchestration in the cloud with AKS (Azure Kubernetes Services) using simple examples, related to our lecture.
