IT transformation is more than a one-time migration of applications to the cloud, because the cloud isnít a destination in itself. Successful migration is the start of an ongoing process of evolving your applications to take advantage of new native capabilities, as they become available on your chosen cloud platform.
This e-book illustrates the iterative process of cloud adoption by following the IT transformation journey of a fictitious company, Mercurial Footwear, in its adoption of Microsoft Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The various stages of this transformation ó from a simple lift-and-shift to the cloud to leveraging cutting-edge technologies like containers and serverless computing ó are typical of the process that Rackspace helps its customers to navigate through.
With step-by-step explanations, the e-book will provide you with insights into the way cloud architecture evolves, to help you to better take advantage of the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) features most relevant for your business needs.
