HCL launches Kubernetes Migration Platform to accelerate application modernisation

HCL Technologies has launched its Kubernetes Migration Platform to help organisations accelerate application modernisation. HCL KMP is an automated solution that helps organisations migrate workloads from legacy on-premises and Cloud Foundry environments to modern Kubernetes-based platforms. KMP’s repeatable, reliable, and cost-effective approach enables organisations to reduce risk and complete migrations up to 120 times faster compared to manual alternatives.

In addition, HCL KMP enables organisations to effortlessly move workloads between hybrid, multi-cloud environments built on different Kubernetes-based platforms, including; Google GKE, Microsoft Azure AKS, Amazon EKS, VMWare TKGI, Rancher, and Red Hat OpenShift. The platform offers organisations more freedom of choice, ensuring they are run on the most cost-effective platforms and helping to avoid vendor lock-in.

“Enterprises have grown increasingly concerned with the operational costs of maintaining legacy Cloud Foundry environments in a cloud-native world,” said Kalyan Kumar, CTO and Head of Ecosystems, HCL Technologies. “Limited modernisation capabilities in Cloud Foundry have made it difficult to migrate to Kubernetes without an excessive investment of time and resources. KMP creates a bridge to the future, by offering our clients a fast, fully automated, and hassle-free journey to any Kubernetes-based platform.”
