Scottish Government Virtualizes Critical Legacy Apps in VMware Cloud on AWS [BCA3199BU]
Scotland’s Agriculture and Rural Economy Directorate (ARE) desired to embrace a modern hybrid cloud strategy built around VMware technologies as their platform of the future. This was complicated by many mission-critical, legacy applications and Oracle databases that were perceived to be impossible to virtualize or move to the cloud due to their dependence on legacy technologies such as the SPARC/Solaris platform, Oracle Database 10g, and Oracle APEX. House of Brick and ARE partnered to virtualize the legacy application stacks using VMware vSphere, and leverage VMware HCX and VMware Cloud on AWS as a disaster recovery platform. Between the two, ARE proved that even the most stubborn legacy application can be a good fit for a hybrid cloud environment built on the strong technological foundations provided by VMware.
