Maximizing Mobility: How Containers Are Changing the Game

Implementing a new technology infrastructure doesn’t need to mean leaving behind all your legacy applications — but it could, if your migration strategy isn’t up to scratch. The classic “lift and shift” approach may not hold up when porting a legacy application to a new cloud or virtualization platform; this often drains time and resources, while restricting you from taking full advantage of cloud benefits like infinite scalability.

Instead, companies should be looking at Kubernetes and the benefits of container mobility. A cloud-native migration strategy is designed to support lightweight platform abstractions, creating localized application bundles that can easily be moved between private and public clouds as needed. Including the operating system within each container means that they can all operate independently of their host environment — minimizing the impacts of outage. But introducing this at scale can be complex, which is why third-party support is critical.

In this final installment of Trilio’s series, “Proactive Protection: Building Resiliency Into Your Cloud-Native Data Strategy,” experts will explain how cloud-native migration strategies are critical for quick and efficient workload migrations, with no performance loss.

Tune in to learn more about:

  • The limitations of “lift and shift” and other traditional migration strategies
  • Why a reliable migration strategy can make or break your operations over time
  • How Kubernetes can unlock the full potential of your new multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud infrastructure
