Ottawa, Canada, April 21, 2017 -- AppZero is pleased to announce Version 7.0 of its award-winning application migration product AZ-Migrate, which supports application migrations from WS2003, WS2008, and WS2012 to WS2016 and to Windows Containers on WS2016. With Microsoft's Custom Support Agreement (CSA) for Windows Server 2003 entering its third and final year this summer, it’s even more imperative to migrate server applications off the 14-year-old operating system.
AZ-Migrate is an industry-leading software tool that automatically moves Windows-based applications from older operating systems to newer operating systems, to new in-house servers or to hybrid or public cloud environments, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS clouds, and IBM SoftLayer.
AZ-Migrate lets you automatically move server applications to a similar operating system or to a newer platform, in hours instead of weeks and months. Version 7.0 lets you move from Windows Server 2000, 2003, or 2008 to Windows Server 2008, 2012, and now to 2016 as well as to Docker-compatible Windows Containers on 2016. If you’re moving to Windows Server 2016, you can get there in one step – no need to first upgrade to Windows Server 2008 or 2012. Modernizing lets you leverage WS2016 features and functionality, as well as avoid costly custom and extended support fees for Windows Server2003 and future EOS for 2008. You can consolidate a datacenter for a smaller footprint, and side step security risks and noncompliance associated with running on an unsupported platform.
AZ-Migrate belongs to AppZero’s suite of tools that manage the lifecycle of a Windows Server application migration: AZ-Monitor, AZ-Migrate, and AZ Maintain. For more information about AZ-Migrate and to get an inside look at AppZero’s new migration orchestration platform, AZ-Maestro, please join us on Wednesday, April 26 at 1 pm EST for an exciting Webinar.
Says AppZero CEO Nigel Stokes, “AppZero is working closely with customers and partners to develop automated Windows Server Modernization solutions that add value in their business. Version 7.0 is opening up new capability for our customers to easily support WS2016 servers as operational systems for legacy applications.”
AZ-Migrate 7.0 is now available to all customers.
