Migrating Legacy Windows Applications with Chef Habitat
Packaging 13 year old technology and running in modern compute environments. Most cloud migration journeys at some point involve the need to migrate legacy applications from outdated and unsupported versions of Windows to more modern operating system. This is never a simple task. Attempting such a migration using manual methodologies simply does not scale and cannot be easily replicated across environments. Habitat introduces a level of application automation that allows one to package almost any application, even legacy Windows applications, and load them into a Supervisor runtime running on modern infrastructure. This codifies application installation and configuration in a way that can be easily repeated sometimes dramatically reducing the time it takes to raise new application environments from scratch.
