Making Legacy Legendary – A Windows 2003 Application Journey to the Cloud
Legacy applications are real and many organizations have them. In this talk we will explain and demonstrate how we migrated a legacy application running on out-of-support Windows 2003 physical servers, to a modern cloud neutral docker platform using Docker Enterprise for Windows Server Containers. Built fully using infrastructure-as-code tooling, the platform is fault tolerant and this resilience is continuously tested via a Chaos Monkey that injects faults into the platform. The application and build process has also been fully automated, allowing the development team to leverage CI/CD tooling to build and deploy the application, all without changing a single line of application code.
