Some have set-off on a course to modernize by adopting a DevOps methodology. Not without its challenges, DevOps provides processes and policies wrapped in cultural change directed at development and operations teams.
A critical component of this methodology is the use of Containers where applications are built, housed, enhanced, accelerated, tested and launched iteratively and at high velocity.
Great! But what about the current legacy environment?
Home-grown applications, unsupported operating systems, ancient hardware, multiple data centers, private clouds, public clouds make up the IT footprint and developing a strategy to modernize this seems daunting. But it doesn’t need to be.
Containerizing applications solves many legacy IT challenges and there’s no need to adopt a holistic DevOps strategy to reap the benefits.
