Everyone’s moving their applications to the cloud nowadays. Starting fresh is easy, but what if you have existing infrastructure that you need to migrate? Recreating your network in the cloud offers you a chance to modernize your architecture and make use of the many benefits of cloud providers like AWS.
AWS’s new Application Migration service is a tool for performing Lift-and Shift migrations, where servers are copied entirely automatically, and lifted to the cloud, where application service is transferred over. It’s easy to use, and can move servers with minimal downtime.
Many applications need the lowest latency possible, but still want to execute some form of logic. While Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are traditionally static, it’s becoming increasingly common to run code at the edge of the network, closest to the user.
The AWS ecosystem is complicated, and much different than the traditional cloud providers you may be used to. We’ll explain the differences, what their various services are used for, and how they stack up to the competition.
