Kubernetes Container Platforms

Modernize Java Applications to Run on Kubernetes

Refactor legacy applications for your Kubernetes platform

Kubernetes platforms are the gold standard for managing containerized workloads and services. Outside of expensive & lengthy rewrites, refactoring legacy Java applications is the only way developers are able to fully take advantage of all the cloud native value provided by these platforms. Whether you have standardized on managed Kubernetes engines such as EKS from AWS, GKE from Google Cloud, OKE from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, or AKS from Microsoft Azure, or have deployed a hybrid cloud platform such as Red Hat OpenShift or VMware Tanzu, the biggest inhibitor to expanding and accelerating Kubernetes adoption internally is legacy application modernization. The vFunction platform automates and accelerates refactoring legacy applications into cloud native architecture, enabling organizations to fully take advantage of all the benefits that Kubernetes and cloud native bring to the business, development teams, and IT operations.

Ignite developer productivity and business agility

By eliminating code dependencies and creating highly independent services, developers can build faster, ship more often, and deploy in any Kubernetes-based public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. Since legacy applications are brittle and difficult to maintain, it becomes increasingly difficult to quickly add new features or adjust to sudden changes in the business environment. vFunction modernizes legacy monolithic applications into a microservices architecture that dramatically increases engineering velocity and business agility for Kubernetes cloud native customers.

Adopt the latest cloud native tools and best practices

Legacy applications cannot access and leverage modern cloud native tooling like Kubernetes and all the related Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ecosystem of tooling.  This includes CI/CD pipelines, service mesh technology such as Istio, or observability tools like Prometheus and Jaeger. The vFunction platform not only modernizes legacy applications but also enables the application to then plug into a wealth of modern development infrastructure that increases scalability, security, and visibility. For example, by exposing the state within an application and within a service, vFunction enables developers to turn stateful services into stateless microservices that can then be scaled with Kubernetes environments.

Converge applications on a single, common Kubernetes platform

The cost of supporting multiple platforms and frameworks creates a major drag on productivity, budgets, and development velocity. vFunction helps organizations utilize a Kubernetes container management platform or service to unify disparate application frameworks into a single, cohesive base. Without vFunction, IT and development teams must continue to support a variety of older code bases, multiple deployment pipelines, and separate and distinct application runtimes.

Replace legacy components with modern cloud native infrastructure

Organizations are setting standards for adopting cloud native open source components and resources that are specifically built to run on Kubernetes. Decomposing legacy applications into highly independent services gives architects and developers the freedom to upgrade to the latest versions of their existing tools or choose something new. By combining vFunction extracted microservices with a modern technology stack built on cloud native tools, organizations can replace older, more expensive software infrastructure and the related maintenance and licensing costs.
