Several barriers have delayed IT’s progress in migrating to cloud computing environments. One of the biggest barriers is application migration. This is a major barrier because IT may no longer have all the information needed to migrate applications. Migration might also be a barrier due to the complexity associated with performing a successful migration. Application migration requires detailed knowledge of all the moving parts in an application, its dependencies, and its behavior with regard to usage and workloads. What if a service could automatically solve most of these problems and move an application to the cloud in minutes? Enter AppZero, which solves the challenge of migrating to the cloud.
