Windows 2003 EOL, Migrate Your Applications Now (Part 2)

In my previous blog post, I discussed how to migrate Windows 2003 applications that needed to run on a new environment, but for which the business and usage requirements fundamentally remain the same. As I mentioned, this is what typically happens for about 80% of the applications. But there are applications for which more drastic changes are required.
What changes are we talking about and how are they performed?

Windows 2003 EOL, migrate your applications now

As windows 2003 is reaching end of life in June 2015, it becomes important to start looking at how to migrate the many applications running in this environment, before they become irrelevant. In a world where information technology is increasingly cloud based (private, managed or public cloud), exploring how to migrate such applications to cloud based environments should be envisaged. Let’s review the options available to you and how such migrations can take place.

Planning your journey to Cloud, get your applications sorted.

A couple days ago I was talking to a colleague who explained one of his customers had 5000 applications to migrate to cloud.

That analysis will ultimately have to be done, but in the meantime, I suggested a six step approach I’d like to share with you.

Tackling Internet latency in a hybrid Cloud environment

The other day, one of our customers asked me a simple question. “In a hybrid Cloud environment, what is the influence of Internet latency on user experience?” This question may sound rather technical at first glance, but it’s a real good one. It actually requires thinking through both business and technical aspects. And the answer is not straight forward. Actually, my answer was, “It depends.” Let me explain.

Are the IaaS and PaaS markets locked? No, and here is why.

Returning from a couple of days off, I found this article from David Linthicum in InfoWorld. IaaS and PaaS markets will no longer support smaller providers, which now need to find new specialties, or call it quits. It was written after the news that veteran Cloud provider Rackspace pulled out of the IaaS market . My objective is not to comment on Rackspace’s move, but rather to reject David’s claims. Let me explain why.
