Migrate in One Step (05.15.2013)

  1. 1. Liberate Your Applications Greg O’Connor – CEO Patrick Pushor – Senior Solution Architect Mark Woodward – VP, Engineering Migrate From Windows 2003 to 2012 In One Step
  2. 2. Agenda • AppZero at a glance • On boarding existing apps – Market context – Migration options • New in AppZero 5.3 • Feature focus: Up-level application migration – Demo • Summary and Q&A
  3. 3. AppZero at a Glance • AppZero is the fastest and most flexible way to move applications from the data center to the cloud • Named to “10 Cloud Startups to Watch” by ( in March 2013 • Partners/Customers:
  4. 4. Enterprise Application Migration AppZero does for apps what VMs do for machines VAA AppZero extracts existing enterprise applications and packages them into VAAs that can be provisioned and run natively on any OS, machine or cloud, fast. (including managed clouds) Source Machine Target Machine Extract Copy & Run Dissolve & install Discover
  5. 5. AppZero Supports Key IT Initiatives • Data Center Consolidation / Relocation – Public cloud onboarding / migration – M&A integration, ITSO, power & cost optimization • Data Center Transformation – Infrastructure normalization & upgrade – Private cloud / converged infra migration • Workload Consolidation – LOB cost consolidation, reorganization
  6. 6. AppZero lets you move apps between physical and virtual environments without lock in faster Application portability across physical and virtual
  7. 7. AppZero lets you move apps from any datacenter to any cloud faster Application portability across data centers and clouds
  8. 8. Application portability and “up level OS” version • AppZero lets you move apps to newer versions of the operating system • Eliminate OS-upgrade and transformation tasks – Just move to a new server and throw the old one away • Fastest path to modernize infrastructure, or move server apps to the cloud
  9. 9. On-boarding Enterprise Server Apps • Enterprise cloud adoption is mostly: • Existing apps • LOB production apps • Windows: 70-75% of the servers • Reality of migration: • Migration is expensive • Migrating existing apps is a barrier to adoption • MSP and PaaS have special needs that VMs can’t meet • Windows Server 2003 coming to EOL (end of life) • No security updates, No patches, No support • Risk goes up dramatically after EOL Migrating existing apps
  10. 10. Today’s migration options • Manual installation/scripting – Often the only way to get applications onto a hosted service (until now) – Very labor intensive, expensive, and takes a long time • Virtual Machines (P2V or V2V) – Does not address different OS migration – Does not address different security, back-up, monitoring migrations – Slow to migrate; VAA 10 to 100 times smaller/faster to move – MSP and PaaS destinations only want the app/middleware • AppZero’s Zapp extraction, transformation and rehosting – App migration is more flexible; change OS, security, monitoring, etc. – Fastest way to move enterprise applications (minutes vs. days) – De-risk migrating production applications to the cloud goo d better Best!
  11. 11. What Is New With AppZero 5.3? • AppZero 5.3 GA (April 2013) – Windows Server 2012 Support – Tether Monitor – Up-Level Dissolve – … and many more “under the cover” enhancements!
  12. 12. Key Drivers • Cloud providers pull customers toward latest OS – OS upgrade adds value to infrastructure refresh – Cloud provider policies steer customers to latest Windows • Looming EOL for Windows 2003 – Highlights the need to refresh infrastructure – There is no OS upgrade path from 32-bit servers • Customer demand for moving IIS workloads – MSFT tools are complicated and developer-oriented – Enabler for migration to Azure Web Role instances
  13. 13. Move apps to newer versions of Windows • Enable moving apps to later Windows versions – From Windows 2000, 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2 – To Windows 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 – Directly (e.g. 2000 to 2012) • Reorganizes application assets to match new OS – “side-by-side” components, user folders, environment variables, … • Limitations – Application must be API-compatible with new Windows version • Quick Demo Next… Source Server zapp Source Server zapp
  14. 14. Existing Application MS SQL Server Application App Stack Moving existing application with zapp migration Application extracted on demand from source (cloud) to target (cloud) Source Server Target Server
  15. 15. Zapp Migration Model • Extract existing application from one environment and migrate it to another • The setup: – Source machine (e.g. datacenter): • No software/tools added • Access via network share – Target machine (e.g. cloud) • AppZero installed • Tether to source machine • Start the application services • Application is “paged” from source to target – files, registry, configuration, data, environment • Result: – Application is migrated to the target cloud instance
  16. 16. Demo
  17. 17. Zapp migration • SQL Server moved and running on a new, clean Windows 2012 server in a few minutes. – Services, users, files, registry, and other components. – 357 files, 74 folders, – ~220 MB in size • Zapp migration is systematic, generalized approach – Works with any app and app stack • Dissolve the VAA is often the last step – App inside the VAA is installed on to the target machine – No AppZero layer after Dissolve – AppZero software is removed from target machine
  18. 18. Summary The only cloud-independent application extraction, transformation, and delivery offering in the market • The fastest way to move from any machine to any cloud • Move just the app, not the vm (10-100 times faster) • Modernize (up-level) your OS & supporting infrastructure • Reduce risk of migrating your apps • WS2003 EOL remediation • MSP and PaaS friendly – Leave the mess behind • MSP SLA confidence
