Best Practices, enabling hybrid cloud app modernization
Cloud adoption is more than just moving workloads. "Lift and Shift," once considered the logical first step in a cloud adoption, sometimes does more harm than good. There are often times where investing in the future is more important than re-hosting the past.

Join vXchnge, AWS, Cascadeo and Megaport for a discussion on thoughtful cloud transformation, including how to solve application modernization and migration challenges while maximizing business agility with AWS platform technologies.

We’ll talk about:

-Trends in app modernization
-Best practices for hosting, replatforming, and re-architecting applications
-Recommendations for managing your colocated infrastructure
-The importance of connectivity between your distributed infrastructure and simplifying hybrid cloud access and migrations.
