Join us for a webinar on how to approach the modernization of your existing.NET Framework web or service-oriented applications. App modernization, commonly referred to as “lift and shift”, is the action of moving a workload to a newer or more modern environment without altering the application's code and basic architecture.
We’ll examine how to move your existing .NET Framework server-applications directly to Azure by modernizing specific areas, without re-architecting or recoding entire applications.
We’ll also highlight the benefits of moving your apps to the cloud and partially modernizing apps by using a specific set of new technologies and approaches, like Windows Containers and orchestrators in Azure.
At the end of the hour, you’ll see:
- An intro to the cloud migration maturity levels (Cloud-Infrastructure Ready, Cloud-DevOps Ready and Cloud-Optimized)
- How to containerize existing .NET Framework apps with Windows Containers (e.g., -
- Monolithic WebForms and ASP.NET MVC web apps)
- Deploying and running your containerized app into an Azure VM
- Deploying and running your containerized app into Orchestrators in Azure (Kubernetes and Service Fabric)
- DevOps and CI/CD pipelines in VSTS deploying to the same environments in Azure
- Demos for each scenario
The way people work together is changing. Users struggle to manage multiple logins as well as share and discover information, while IT experts face the threat of shadow applications creeping in and threatening security and compliance.
