Many new applications are being created to take advantage of cloud computing. But what about the enormous installed base of existing apps? How can those leverage cloud computing? This presentation describes migrating an existing application into Amazon Web Services (EC2, EBS, and S3), and covers the technical, organizational, and financial aspects of migration.
Specific areas covered include:
Assessing current application architecture and mapping onto the AWS infrastructure
Application code packaging — aka, what’s really running in my app?
Migrating and modifying code to execute in AWS
Managing an application in AWS — options and choices
Financial outcome of application migration: the TCO knockdown
Organizational concerns in a cloud migration
