AppOrbit and Google Partner to Accelerate Cloud Migration With AppPorter 2.0, a Universal Application Modernization Platform


AppPorter 2.0 provides automated modernization to transform and
containerize legacy applications onto a Kubernetes-based hybrid cloud

Today, AppOrbit and Google announced a joint partnership to deliver
Universal Application Modernization and Cloud Migration to enterprise
customers. The partnership is focused on accelerating the digital
transformation and systematically transitioning mission critical
business and other applications into the Google Cloud Platform. With
AppOrbit's universal modernization platform, monolithic applications are
de-stacked into containerized, cloud ready layers that can be composed
directly into the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

Reducing lengthy manual application modernization efforts, accelerating
business innovation, and fast-tracking application Cloud onboarding,
AppOrbit's AppPorter automates digital transformation by analyzing
applications and their data dependencies, translates each application
into a set of modern, comprehensive application containers, and imports
the fully functioning application into the Google Cloud Platform,
without the need to rewrite or recode the application. For
business-critical applications, such as WebLogic and WebSphere,
AppPorter delivers application specific analyzers and transformers to
optimize the modernization process. For the long tail of custom
applications, AppPorter has also developed universal analyzers and
transformers that work for all applications to optimize the
modernization process. Using these approaches, all applications can
easily be modernized and transitioned into the Google Cloud Platform in
a matter of days versus months with the traditional manual
services-oriented approach.

"Enterprises have thousands of applications that are business critical
and near business critical that need to be modernized for companies to
meet their digital transformation goals. Modernizing thousands of
applications manually one at a time is not a viable solution," says
Rahul Ravulur, CEO of AppOrbit. "AppPorter's Universal Transformers and
Quick Iteration Workbench allow architects to modernize and ‘Fail Fast'
to achieve the optimum level of modernization with minimum effort and in
the shortest amount of time for all their applications. For complex
applications like WebSphere & WebLogic, AppPorter provides
highly-calibrated optimization techniques to deliver the
build-test-operate lifecycle benefits within a container-native
environment. The combination of Google's GKE, one of the most advanced
Kubernetes platforms in the market today, and AppOrbit's AppPorter will
help enterprise customers realize and reap the benefits of a
successfully executed digital transformation strategy."
