Make cloud migration faster, easier and more cost-effective with container technology.
Containers have become a key technology for many organisations migrating to the cloud. Used to package an application with its configuration and OS dependencies, they ensure software runs reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. As well as improving portability, they make it easier to leverage cloud benefits such as cost-optimisation, enhanced operability and scalability on-demand.
With containers, cloud migration can be both fast and effective. The technology is also useful in cloud adoption and software deployment scenarios where environments need to be created or extended quickly.
With containers, it’s possible to embrace modern cloud-native approaches without having to recode migrated applications. However, the approach does require expert management and implementation.
When you engage DevOpsGroup for cloud migration or modernisation services, we’ll identify any applications that could benefit from containerisation. Our engineers are experienced in the use of opensource and cloud vendor container technologies and orchestration platforms, from Docker and Kubernetes to Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Azure Container Instances.
We have the technical skills and in-depth cloud knowledge to help you use containers effectively, whatever your circumstances.
“We wanted a partner with lots of experience in complex cloud migrations to conduct a proof of concept ahead of our largescale transition to AWS. DevOpsGroup was totally unfazed by work that we would have been reluctant to undertake.”
Paul Holden, VP Operations, BrightTALK
DevOpsGroup can handle the entire process, from containerising applications to managing their orchestration and operation. We regularly run proof of concept migrations using containers to show how the technology works, and we can also develop blueprints to guide in-house teams.

We regularly handle complex cloud migrations, and we know how to determine the best tools for the task in hand. We have a wealth of experience using container technologies to make the migration process easier, safer and more effective.
Every case is different, however containers can be a good option when migration needs to happen fast, but a lift and shift won’t deliver the required benefits.
Containers are also useful when you need to scale quickly to handle spikes in demand. They can be run in clusters for high availability and resilience.
Since containers don’t need a dedicated internal operating system, licencing costs and management time are reduced. They also make more efficient use of cloud compute resource.
Containers improve portability, ensuring software runs reliably when it’s moved from one computing environment to another.
