How to effortlessly modernise your cloud

Alex Cattle

Companies across all industries have now adopted the cloud computing paradigm, with many leveraging OpenStack to manage private clouds. But what happens when first generation environments become obsolete, non-upgradeable and exposed to security vulnerabilities? The first option that you choose may not the the one that your businesses will always operate.

Because these migration projects are driven by business demand, they must be completed quickly and with minimal interruptions. Businesses often fear the worst and prepare doomsday scenarios when migrating clouds with the worry of substantial downtime front of mind. Such concerns often lead to businesses annexing themselves from the significant benefits of cloud computing.

Trilio, an emerging leader in data protection for OpenStack have partnered with Canonical to help ease these fears by defining the migration path, connecting the old with the new. With Canonical’s Foundation Cloud Build, transitioning organisations to new, maintainable cloud architecture can be completed in just weeks rather than months, so businesses can continue running operations with minimal downtime and full support.

Canonical and Trilio have joined to host a joint webinar focusing on the challenges of migrating to a new cloud and steps to ease that transition. Led by solutions architects Michael Iatrou, senior solutions architect of Canonical and Shin Horiuchi, senior solutions architect of Trilio, this webinar will focus on the process of performing a migration, planning and deploying a new Foundation Cloud Build from Canonical, and protecting the critical workloads you’ve migrated to the new cloud.

In this webinar learn:

  • The critical checkpoints for the move to OpenStack from other clouds or systems
  • How you can determine which components are critical for your environment
  • Workload capture and migration — including across tenants, availability zones, distributions, and versions — using TrilioVault
  • Tactics to surgically cut down overall deployment time for your project using Canonical
  • Real-world OpenStack migration stories
