Key Take-aways:

  • Grid Dynamics delivers a cloud migration starter kit that reduces time and costs for companies moving from on-premise Pivotal Cloud Foundry (now called VMware Tanzu) to managed Amazon EKS
  • The new starter kit combines Grid Dynamics' microservices platform experience with AWS to provide a reliable and scalable foundation and accelerate infrastructure provisioning
  • Companies that leverage the starter kit can build a high-quality, production-ready, enterprise-grade microservices platform more quickly, accelerating time to market of new products

SAN RAMON, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2022 / Grid Dynamics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:GDYN) (Grid Dynamics), a leader in enterprise-level digital transformation services and solutions, announced today that it is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to release a new starter kit to facilitate enterprise migration from Pivotal Cloud Foundry (now called VMware Tanzu) to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).

The new Migration Starter Kit combines Grid Dynamics' custom microservices platform experience with AWS's cloud migration expertise to simplify the transition of existing Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) microservices workloads without the added time and expense needed for backend infrastructure work. With Grid Dynamics' deep experience in executing complex application modernization programs, the company's newest starter kit leverages Amazon EKS Blueprints and addresses key cloud migration and microservices challenges, enabling users to more quickly build a production-ready, enterprise-grade microservices platform.

"The Kubernetes Migration Starter Kit that we're releasing today gives companies a significant boost in their cloud migration efforts and enables enterprises to quickly create the core foundation needed to move PCF-resident applications and datastores to AWS," said Rajeev Sharma, Chief Technology Officer at Grid Dynamics. "By using the tool, companies also gain the advantage of a fully managed microservices platform, which overcomes the scalability limitations of on-premise PCF deployments and removes the need for infrastructure provisioning. As a result, the starter kit shaves months off a company's modernization efforts, improving efficiencies, reducing costs, and ultimately accelerating the time to market of their digital transformation initiatives."

Data Migration and Application Modernization Out of the Box

The Grid Dynamics Starter Kit allows companies to focus on their business domain logic and enables quick onboarding of clean slate implementations. As a result, enterprises can migrate legacy applications, databases, and query caches to a cloud-based platform as a fully operational product on AWS. Additionally, the starter kit leverages Amazon EKS Blueprints to implement best practices for identity access management, and provisions a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline using AWS CodeBuild.

The starter kit shortens the time required to provision cloud environments from months to days, enabling companies to drive business value much faster than is possible with PCF.

The Grid Dynamics Kubernetes Migration Starter Kit delivers several key out-of-the-box capabilities and benefits:

  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and CI/CD
  • Automation identity and role management
  • Standardization of infrastructure
  • Scalability
  • Accelerated time to market

Complementing the starter kit, Grid Dynamics offers custom consulting services to optimize the operation of an enterprise's microservices on AWS, including both data migration and application modernization, allowing users to focus on building products and services that deliver business value much faster.
