The VM-to-Container Transition—Another Way Diamanti Makes It Easy

For organizations looking to modernize their IT infrastructures and achieve increased flexibility and cost savings, the shift from legacy virtual machines (VMs) to containers is already in full swing.

To learn more about the VM-to-Container Transition check out the information and videos here.

Diamanti simplifies this transition through its integration with KubeVirt,  making it possible to lift-and-shift VMs to a Kubernetes-native platform. This gives you the advantages of a cloud-native platform without the cost and complexity of application refactoring.

However, that’s not the only way Diamanti simplifies the VM-to-container transition.

Diamanti’s Kubernetes platforms are also designed so that you don’t have to give up familiar capabilities that you relied on in your legacy infrastructure including:

  • The ability to attach IP addresses to VMs that move with the VM.
  • Mirroring of VMs volumes for high availability
  • Async replication for supporting your hybrid/multi-cloud DR strategy

In short, you get all the benefits of hosting applications in a lightweight Kubernetes container environment—lower infrastructure costs, less latency, etc.—without the refactoring but also without having to relearn a new set of administration procedures.

Also, keep in mind the very significant cost saving. Moving VMs from legacy, hypervisor-based solutions to Kubernetes-native delivers unbeatable savings on-prem and in the cloud.

By eliminating the ever rising licensing costs of VMware and reducing footprint with a high performant platform, Diamanti regularly delivers 39% savings on-premises.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the cloud, the ability to pack multiple VMs on a single instance leads to savings of over 50%.
