  • Thanks, Lori. I find the categorization of approaches to application migration very useful.
    While I know that this is meant to be a briefing note, it's probably worth noting that some of the approaches are employed not only for application migration, but (thereafter) used for application 're-deployment' on cloud infrastructure. The 'easy, one-button' deployment of complex, composed applications on cloud infrastructure seems to be as important and as valuable to the end-user as is the 'one-time' migration.

  • 1.  CloudVelocity  A  Briefing  Note  By  Lori  Macvittie  CloudVelocity  A  Briefing  Note  by  Lori  Macvittie    Company:     CloudVelocity  (www.cloudvelocity.com)  Market:     Hybrid  Cloud  Application  Migration    Products:     One Hybrid Cloud™  Summary:        Cloud  Velocity  technology  is  designed  to  manage  automated  migration  of  applications  in  hybrid  cloud  environments  as  well  as  on-­‐boarding  enterprise  applications  to  public  cloud  computing  environments    
  • 2.  CloudVelocity  A  Briefing  Note  By  Lori  Macvittie  Market  Overview    The  market  for  Application  Migration  is  just  beginning  to  emerge  into  an  evolving  state  as  cloud  adoption  of  packaged  applications  becomes  a  key  focus  for  enterprise  customers.    There  are  two  primary  approaches  to  migration  of  existing  applications  with  varying  technology  approaches  to  achieving  migration:    1. Virtual  Machine  migration    a. Wholesale  VM  migration    b. Shim-­‐based  migration    2. Application  migration    a. SI  /  manual  migration    b. Toolsets  c. Standards    d. Solutions    The  market  remains  dominated  by  wholesale  VM  migration  methods  as  it  remains  the  least  complex.  Application  migration  via  toolsets  and  solutions  is  gaining  mindshare  due  to  its  ability  to  transcend  not  only  cloud  environments  but  hypervisor  dependencies,  allowing  a  wider  selection  of  and  greater  mobility  between  providers.    SI  and  manual  migration  has  been  the  primary  mechanism  through  which  native,  non-­‐virtualized  applications  are  moved  from  enterprise  to  cloud  due  to  complex  dependencies  and  inter-­‐application  relationships.  Automated  systems  which  are  able  to  replicate  the  completeness  of  migration  offered  by  manual  processes  such  as  SI  and  manual  migration  are  beginning  to  emerge  but  remain  nascent.    Standards  are,  at  this  juncture,  non-­‐existent  with  the  exception  of  OASIS  CAMP  (Cloud  Application  Management  for  Platforms)  which  has  only  recently  been  proposed  for  consideration.    Cloud  Velocity  Overview    Cloud  Velocity  has  chosen  to  focus  on  a  packaged  approach  to  migration  of  applications  irrespective  of  virtualization  status.  Its  technology  is  able  to  package  and  migrate  applications  holistically  from  one  environment  to  another,  including  dependent  systems  such  as  relational  databases.  This  process  is  automated  and  requires  very  little  application-­‐specific  knowledge  to  ensure  all  dependent  applications  are  included.      Cloud  Velocity  is  targeting  hybrid  cloud  deployments  with  a  focus  on  migrating  enterprise-­‐class  applications  comprising  multiple  tiers  of  services.  It  is  also  able  to  migrate  applications  across  clouds,  with  Rackspace  and  Amazon  EC2  currently  supported.    Cloud  Velocity  comprises  multiple  components  enabling  automated  discovery  of  dependent  systems  including  applications  and  storage.  It  also  attempts  to  resolve  integration  issues  by  extended  data  center  services  such  as  authoritative  identity  stores  to  applications  migrated  to  the  cloud.    
  • 3.  CloudVelocity  A  Briefing  Note  By  Lori  Macvittie     Advantages    -­‐ Automated  discovery  enables  a  packaged  application  approach  to  migration    -­‐ Non-­‐disruptive  to  existing  architecture    -­‐ Time  to  migrate  reduce  to  minutes  instead  of  hours  or  days    -­‐ Hypervisor  agnostic  and  can  migrate  non-­‐virtualized  applications      Disadvantages      -­‐ Infrastructure  services  such  as  DNS  are  not  managed  by  Cloud  Velocity,  requiring  manual  intervention  for  cloud  bursting  scenarios    -­‐ Discovery  requires  access  to  systems  at  the  network  layer    Competitors    1. Virtual  Machine  migration    a. Wholesale  VM  migration    i. VMware  ii. Citrix  Xen  iii. Microsoft  Hyper-­‐V    iv. ServiceMesh    b. Shim-­‐based  migration    i. CloudSwitch    ii. Platespin    2. Application  migration    a. Toolsets    i. MS:  Server  App-­‐V  ii. MS:  App-­‐V  iii. VMware:  Thinstall    b. Standards    i. OASIS  CAMP    c. Solutions    i. AppZero    Summary    Cloud  Velocity’s  automated  and  holistic  approach  to  application  migration  is  unique  within  the  broader  Application  Migration  market  and  brings  with  it  promising  opportunities  for  customers  to  realize  a  federated  cloud  ecosystem  for  enterprise-­‐class  applications  as  well  as  enabling  true  cloud  bursting  architectures  leveraging  public  cloud  environments  in  support  of  periodic  elasticity  requirements.
