Solution refactoring is the process of restructuring code, infrastructure , microservices and database platforms to improve the design of the solution. Refactoring generally does not change core functionality and preserves external behaviour.
Realize the full value of developing your business on the cloud
Refactoring solutions on the cloud generally refers to changing the design of a current solution into a solution that is more cloud-native. When organizations fully transition into the cloud they want to take advantage and utlize all aspects of cloud computing model.
Flexibility with On-Demand Delivery
Cost Savings with Pay-Per-Use Model Elasticity and Scalability
Fault-Tolerant Reliability Ease of Use with Managed Services
There are a number of ways in which cloud refactoring can be accomplished.
Minimum Viable Refactoring - This type of refactoring is generally done with an organization's initial transition into the cloud in a lift-and-shift migration.
It requires slight changes to the application while underlying technology such as security, networking and identification management are switched to cloud-native solutions.
Code refactoring - Code is changed to utilize many cloud-native features required by the application. This method can improve performance, keep operation costs low and allows the IT team to easily meet business needs.
Database refactoring - On-premise database technologies are switched to cloud managed database solutions. Many of the routine tasks are handled with managed services and offer ease of use and high availability right out of the box.
Containerization Refactoring - This type of refactoring involves moving applications into containers with minimal modifications. The applications exist within the containers, which enables users to incorporate cloud-native features and improve portability.
Serverless Application Refactoring - Serverless refactoring requires moving the application and all components to serverless cloud-native technologies, removing the need to manage and update servers within the environment.
