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 do we approach migration?

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.

Technology stack

We focus on migrating applications from Cloud Foundry to Kuberenetes based platforms, coupled with Istio service mesh, and powered by cloud database, caching, and messaging services. In some cases, we bring existing open source technologies, such as Kafka, Redis, or MongoDB, to the cloud to simplify the migration process. We use immutable infrastructure and infrastructure-as-code best practices with Hashicorp technologies such as Terraform, Packer, and Vault.

We bring more than 10 years of experience in migrating Fortune-1000 enterprises from on-premise environments to the cloud while moving applications from expensive PaaS products to container-based microservices platforms. We have saved our clients millions of dollars in annual license costs while improving developer productivity and achieving a 10x increase in speed to market using open source-based cloud-native technologies.

We provide flexible engagement options to plan and execute migration from Cloud Foundry to Kubernetes. Clients can take advantage of our accelerators to increase their speed to market and reduce risk. Contact us today to start with a workshop, discovery, or PoC.

Discovery

If you want to migrate from PCF to k8s, but aren’t sure where to start, we recommend a 2 to 3 week discovery phase where we can take a deeper look at your current application and analytics stack, design the optimum solution, and build out a roadmap.

Proof of concept

If you have already identified a specific use case for cloud migration, we can start off with a 4 to 8‑week proofof‑concept project to deliver tangible results for your company.

Workshop

We offer free half-day workshops with our top experts in cloud, microservices, data, and DevOps to discuss your optimum cloud migration strategy, opportunities, and industry best practices.

Demo

We offer free demos of our accelerators. As a part of a demo, we will share our point of view on the most effective and efficient migration strategies and discuss case studies from Fortune-1000 clients.
