How do we approach migration?
Migration from Cloud Foundry to cloud-native Kubernetes microservices and CICD platform starts with an assessment of the application portfolio. This includes the existing continuous delivery process and underlying technology stack. A number of considerations, such as the connectivity between applications, security requirements, technology stack dependencies, and complexity of applications, are made to determine the right sequence of migration. The migration is then done in batches.
As applications deployed in Cloud Foundry usually follow modern microservices and 12-factor design best practices, only limited modifications of application code are needed. After the base microservices and CICD platform is deployed in the cloud, applications are configured for packaging in containers and to use cloud-native dependencies such as DBs, caching, and messaging. Applications are then deployed and tested, data is migrated, and after final testing the production traffic is switched. The process then repeats for the next batch of services and applications.
How does the microservices platform work?
The primary goal of the microservices platform is to provide development and SRE teams with a solid foundation to develop, package, test, deploy, and operate applications and services designed according to microservices architecture patterns. It helps to adopt and enforce microservices architecture in an enterprise environment and realize the benefits of microservices, immutable infrastructure, and infrastructure-as-code. Modern digital environments include hundreds to thousands of microservices, and the platform automates all aspects of application deployment and lifecycle management, enabling autonomous operations.
