Applications built before the dawn of the cloud run on large and cumbersome in-house servers, require manual maintenance and come with expensive licensing costs. The cloud mindset of ease and automation can take away a lot of these problems, but knowing where to start with replatforming an application–while keeping things up and running–opens up a can of worms for development teams.
The benefits of a cloud-native application include faster software releases, automated infrastructure and effortless migration to the public cloud. Rebuilding a production application for the cloud could involve substantial downtime, which enterprises would often rather avoid, especially if the application is critical to the business.
We help improve hard-to-maintain applications by assessing their cloud-readiness in line with app methodology.
Applications may or may not be able to become fully cloud-native, in which case–instead of suggesting a complete rebuild–we will outline the minimum changes to get the application up and running on the cloud.
While keeping the application live and in-use, we can then help you refactor code to move towards a fully cloud-native app, taking full advantage of the flexibility and ease the cloud has to offer.
“When we moved our client portal, it was a big risk. BlazeCloud assured us there wouldn’t be any downtime and come Monday morning, our big clients were back up and running. They wouldn’t have even known we’d moved data centers. It was that straight forward.”
