How to avoid rewriting your VMware applications in the cloud

Watch On Demand

There is a fundamental shift in today’s data center strategy. While customers continue to take a “cloud first” approach to new application development, they are now expanding that approach to “cloud smart” and considering which existing applications should be retired, preserved on-premises, or moved to the cloud. Each decision requires an understanding of the application, but moving applications to the cloud, especially those that are VMware-based, presents another layer of obstacles that administrators must address and reconcile to ensure success.

Hear from 11:11’s Steve Rosenthal, Senior Product Manager, Brian Knudtson, Director of Cloud Intelligence, and Justin Augat, VP Product Marketing, to understand the various strategies that can be used to move VMware-based applications to the cloud, as well as those options that may present short and long-term challenges.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Hear why “cloud smart” is replacing “cloud first” and why it matters to your organization
  • Understand the various strategies, including the five R’s (rehosting, replatforming, refactoring, rewriting, and replacing), that customers employ to run existing VMware-based applications in the cloud
  • Learn why 11:11’s VMware native public and hosted private cloud can quickly deliver the benefits of cloud, without the cost, effort and complexity associated with hyperscale cloud platforms
