Cloud adoption statistics continue to rise, but that doesn’t mean your company should jump on the cloud bandwagon — at least not without the right strategy and assistance. It’s one thing to implement software-as-a-service (SaaS) or a cloud-first strategy for new systems. It’s an entirely different ball game when it comes to migrating Windows workloads to the cloud — particularly legacy systems and those that require high availability. When moving to the cloud, it’s usually not enough to

In a previous blog, we talked about how microservices have changed application modernization. A somewhat related concept that’s also had an impact is that of containers. And, as it so happens, microservices and containers work well together for app modernization.

In the IT world — including the app development sector — some trends are just that: trends. That’s not the case with microservices architecture, and for good reason.

Despite all the white papers, blogs, ads, and other materials produced on the topic, there continues to be a misperception about cloud migration. While the benefits of cloud computing are well documented, simply moving to the cloud doesn’t ensure they will all be realized. That’s especially true if the apps being moved weren’t designed and built with the cloud in mind. Enter application modernization. App modernization entails taking existing apps — typically on-premise, legacy, and monolithic — and changing

When it comes to modernizing and migrating Windows workloads, the question isn’t as much “should I do it” as “how should I do it??” One of the best ways — for many reasons — is to use AWS. AWS has offered cloud services longer than any other cloud services provider. By helping thousands of Windows users move to the cloud, AWS has developed a deep knowledge of the ins and outs of Windows workload modernization and migration. Experience, Flexibility and More

It’s the age of the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing. They’re not just changing the IT industry. They are transforming just about every aspect of business operations for companies across all industries. Nonetheless, many of the companies leveraging these technologies in their products and services are being held back by their own applications. Much of the problem stems from a lack of app modernization. That was the case for one of ClearScale’s clients. The
