Co-Transformation to Cloud-Native Applications - Development Experiences and Experimental Evaluation

Abstract

Modern software applications following cloud-native design principles and architecture guidelines have inherent advantages in fulfilling current user requirements when executed in complex scheduled environments. Engineers responsible for software applications therefore have an intrinsic interest to migrate to cloud-native architectures. Existing methodologies for transforming legacy applications do not yet consider migration from partly cloud-enabled and cloud-aware applications under continuous development. This work thus introduces a co-transformation methodology and validates it through the migration of a prototypical music identification and royalty collection application. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed methodology is capable to effectively guide a transformation process, resulting in elastic and resilient cloud-native applications. Findings include the necessity to maintain application self-management even on modern cloud platforms.
