The eternal struggle of application development is choosing to pay down technical debt or adding new features. Why not both! This meetup will explore modernization strategies enabled by open-source project KubeVirt that will help you do just that.
Legacy applications are usually monolithic and run on one or more virtual machines. Some applications are easier to modernize if they have well established counterparts in the containerized world (EAP, Spring Boot, etc). Large classic .Net applications running on IIS in Windows server are a lot harder to modernize in one shot. KubeVirt allows you to import your existing VM workloads into Kubernetes and modernize your application in stages.
With KubeVirt, Virtual Machines are first-class citizens in Kubernetes and have access to all the artifacts that pods do, including being able to access and be accessed using service endpoints. Once you have the VM running in your Kubernetes project, you can start to modernize and extend the functionality of your application.
We will import a .Net application running on IIS on a Windows Server VM into KubeVirt. Then we will go through the stages of containerizing each of the logical layers of the application. Note that this strategy can be used with other OS and Middleware combinations.
