Making modernization easy

Migrate for Anthos and GKE makes it fast and easy to modernize traditional applications away from virtual machines and into native containers. Unique automated approach extracts the critical application elements from the VM so you can easily insert those elements into containers in Google Kubernetes Engine or Anthos clusters without the VM layers (like Guest OS) that become unnecessary with containers.

This significantly reduces the cost and labor that would be required for a manual application modernization project. Upon completion, it also empowers your teams to deploy, operate, and maintain existing applications more efficiently and cost effectively, using the same services, policies, and methodologies of a modern platform. 

Craft your ideal migration journey

Most digital transformations will be a mix of strategies. For the workloads that will benefit from containers, Migrate for Anthos and GKE delivers a fast, smooth path to modernization. For other workloads that are better suited as a VM, simply move them as is with Migrate for Compute Engine and leverage VPC network integration with GKE. Don’t settle for being locked into existing infrastructure or one migration path. With Google, run your workloads how you want, where you want.Learn more with this quick video: Migrate with confidence to Google Cloud

Upgrade to containers with ease

Some workloads are simply written off by IT as being “unable to upgrade.” But Migrate for Anthos and GKE strips away layers of manual effort, making migration and modernization a possibility for those workloads, even with small IT teams. Automate the extraction of existing applications from servers and VMs so they can run natively in containers, without having to rewrite or re-architect apps. This helps you eliminate complexity and knowledge gaps that have previously held businesses back from being able to upgrade to containers.

Capitalize on the benefits of modernization faster

Accelerating the migration and adoption of the modern platform enables the business to operate more efficiently with unified policy, management, and skill sets across existing and newly developed apps. It also enables you to unlock additional funding for more modernization and new app development by being able to reallocate budget that was previously required to keep legacy environments up.

Accelerate adoption of day-two operations

For day-two operations, save on labor and costs associated with maintaining, patching, and updating VMs and physical servers by switching to modern CI/CD pipelines, image-based management, and desired-state configuration. Easily modernize IT landscapes by accelerating the adoption of modern services such as Anthos Service MeshAnthos Config Management, role based access control (RBAC), Cloud Logging, and more. Thereby unifying your policy enforcement and management practices across both migrated and newly developed applications.
