RBA whitepaper: Architecting and migrating systems for the cloud
Today’s business environment demands agility: the ability to launch software applications and systems quickly, and the ability for those applications to scale dynamically in response to rising demand from internal or external users.
The Cloud delivers that agility.
But today, many—if not all—of a company’s applications reside in on-premises or hosted environments, where the full range of Cloud infrastructure benefits cannot be unlocked. They need to be migrated to a different environment.
This paper, Architecting and Migrating Systems for the Cloud, examines the two models of how applications and systems can be deployed to the Cloud—Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)—and why PaaS, specifically Microsoft Azure, is generally a superior approach.
The paper also reviews some important considerations when architecting applications for a PaaS environment such as:
- The concept of deconstructing applications for extreme scalability
- The key financial benefits of PaaS
- Important tips for successful re-architecting
