Vendor lock-in is undesirable for organizations and developers
Each public cloud vendor has a set of special development libraries and routines unique to it. Therefore, application migrations from one cloud to another require major changes at code and configuration level to ensure interoperability.
Ideally, developers should be easily able to switch cloud vendors and move to another vendor that provides better services at a more competitive price.
When your application runs on an infrastructure of a given cloud provider, say AWS, you are most likely to use the services that the same cloud provides (SQS, SNS, CloudFront, S3 ..etc.). When migrating your application, even if the target cloud has alternative services, the process remains slow and painful.
The idea to change cloud vendors at will is still a distant dream for most developers
Organizations have also come to learn the negative impact of being stuck to a single cloud vendor. Vendor lock-in strip-away the developers of flexibility. Being beholden to a single vendor is not very desirable to an organization’s bottom line either.
Nevertheless, they expect a seamless movement of workloads between cloud vendors, which is seldom the case. In theory, public clouds are interlinked and share common underlying technologies of virtualization, containerization, and orchestration. Therefore, the movement of workloads shouldn’t be a problem from one cloud vendor to another. For business reasons, these cloud vendors don’t make cloud migration easy, whether to avoid lock-ins or save costs.
Public cloud APIs are clumsy while interlinking is complex, not to mention configuration.
CloudPlex and Digital Ocean allow you to migrate workloads in easy steps and in less time.
CloudPlex unlocks the freedom allowing you to migrate your development workloads from any cloud vendor to Digital Ocean in a few steps, and it takes considerably less time. A typical workload from, say, Microsoft Azure to Digital Ocean shouldn’t take more than four steps or almost thirty minutes. It empowers developers to choose any cloud vendor at the time of initial deployment and move to any other public cloud vendor they deem fit later on and after that.
CloudPlex saves developers from manually creating complex Helm and YAML manifest and config files. The iconic drag-n-drop visual interface allows developers to configure Docker containers without redundant manual actions. Besides, the tool validates and generates all related manifest and config files.
