AppZero Offers One Step Migration from WS2003 to WS2012

With Microsoft’s end of life for Windows Server 2003 fast approaching, AppZero’s new technology provides one step migration

AppZero, the fastest and most flexible way to move server applications from the datacenter to the cloud, has released V5.3 enabling users to  "up-level the OS" of  their existing server applications to WS2012.  The software is now available and will be demonstrated next week at CA World (Pedestal 344A).

AppZero CEO Greg O'Connor is speaking at the AppLogic User Conference with Radix Technologies CEO, David Corriveau, at CA World on Tuesday, April 23 at 2:30 pm, in the Lagoon TD Room.  They will showcase moving applications with AppZero to Radix Technologies' RadixCloud, powered by CA's AppLogic environment.

Corriveau commented, "One of the critical challenges for providers onboarding existing applications is modernizing the operating system as part of the migration from the data center to the cloud. VM migration can't begin to address the modernization challenge."

Organizations are faced with the requirement to migrate applications from Windows Server 2003 to Windows 2008(R2) or even Windows 2012 when adopting a private, managed or public cloud.  AppZero's tool extracts Windows Server applications from production environments and packages them for movement to any datacenter or cloud, without re-engineering, change, or lock-in, fast.

O'Connor said, "Our new tool makes it even easier to reap the benefits of cloud computing, including lower TCO, greater IT and business flexibility, and scalability.  With Windows Server 2003 end of life approaching, companies will be faced with moving large numbers of enterprise applications.  We provide the only way to upgrade existing server applications from WS2003 to WS2008 or WS2012 in a cost effective and time saving way. "

Requiring no AppZero software on the source/production machine, AppZero resides only on the target server, which can be located anywhere - including on the cloud environment where the application is being migrated. AppZero automation eliminates the majority of manual labor, time, costs, and error typically involved in on-boarding complex enterprise applications.

Thought experiment: let’s say your app gets a message from somewhere, perhaps from another app, but you don’t know from where. The message contains the number 47 but no other information. What should your app do with the message? The answer: nothing. There’s no way for your app to make any sense out of a single datum with no context, no additional information or metadata about the datum itself. Now, let’s scale up this thought experiment to a data lake. There are a few common definitions o...
Back in 2009 I posted about the “Great Cloud Shakeout” and the coming market consolidation into a few very large clouds. Nearly 5 1/2 years later and it’s about (long past?) time I took another look to see how I did. Back then I predicted that the market would be dominated by “mega CSPs” by the name of Amazon, Google and Microsoft. Note that this was during a period of Cambrian Explosion in the CSP market – it seems like everybody in the hosting business wanted to be a cloud provider....
