AppZero Adds Tether Console & Modernization for Ease of One-Step Migration

Software is the only automated solution on the market to "modernize" Windows server applications for cloud migrations

AppZero, the fastest, most flexible way to move server applications, announced today AppZero v5.5 that introduces the Tether Console and IIS modernization.  The software is now available and further eases one-step migrations for complex Windows server applications from older operating systems such as Window Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012, and from the data center to the cloud.

AppZero Tether Console is a simple interface that guides users through the AppZero process of migrating applications from source server to destination. AppZero migration automates the extraction and movement of server-side applications to any cloud or machine in a fraction of the time required by other approaches, and with no change to the application.  AppZero is the only cloud-independent application extraction and cloud delivery automation tool on the market.

In addition to the Tether Console, users can now migrate IIS configurations and data from IIS 5.0, IIS 6.0, IIS 7.0 and IIS 7.5 to a destination that is the same or higher IIS version, up to IIS 8.0. All the IIS version support as far back as Windows 2000 can be modernized directly to Windows Server 2012 with IIS 8.0. The AppZero modernization capability saves days and weeks when compared to other modernization and migration approaches.

Finally, AppZero 5.5 adds support for Windows Server 2012 R2. AppZero is the only migration tool that supports modernization to Window Server 2012 R2.

"We are always looking at best practices for ways to improve our product offerings," said Greg O'Connor, AppZero CEO. "As we reach End of Support for Microsoft WS2003 next year, all of these upgrades will be of the utmost importance to Enterprise IT looking for one step migration."

About AppZero AppZero is the fastest and most flexible way to migrate server applications to and across any cloud or datacenter, without re-engineering, re-installation or lock-in.  Encapsulating Windows applications in VM/OS-free packages, AppZero's patented software makes complex server applications moveable with ease.  For more information, visit www.AppZero.com and follow us on twitter @AppZero_Inc.

"With Digital Experience Monitoring what used to be a simple visit to a web page has exploded into app on phones, data from social media feeds, competitive benchmarking - these are all components that are only available because of some type of digital asset," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change.
