For enterprise customers with the goal of moving hundreds or thousands of applications to the cloud, a "lift and shift" migration strategy can sound beneficial. Move your apps to the cloud now, get the additional reliability and scalability, and use the cost savings to modernize over time. This strategy has paid off for many large organizations. But there is a caveat. Some enterprise workloads need a small amount of adjustment in order to meet governance, security and compliance requirements in the cloud. "Minimum viable refactoring", sometimes referred to as the "two week rule", is the process of doing the minimum amount of modernization possible to workloads prior to migration to ensure security and compliance without slowing down large-scale projects. So what is the minimum amount of refactoring possible to maintain operational excellence after migration? In this tech talk, our experts will share common customer issues and specific patterns for addressing them quickly and effectively.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the most common post-migration operational disruptions to avoid
  • Learn how to improve the security and compliance of your application in the cloud in less than two weeks
  • Learn which AWS services and tools can help accelerate your "production-ready" migration

Who Should Attend:

  • Leaders and members of Central IT, Operations, DevOps and Migration teams will benefit from the actionable advice in this tech talk

Managing point-to-point connectivity across many Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), without the ability to centrally manage the connectivity policies, can be operationally costly and cumbersome. And for on-premises connectivity, you need to attach your AWS VPN to each individual Amazon VPC. In this tech talk, we'll discuss how AWS Transit Gateway significantly simplifies management and reduces operational costs with a hub and spoke architecture. Each network only has to connect to the Transit Gateway and not to every other network. Any new VPC is simply connected to the Transit Gateway and is then automatically available to every other network that is connected to the Transit Gateway. This ease of connectivity makes it easy to scale your network as you grow.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the features and benefits of AWS Transit Gateway
  • Learn how to simplify your networking and connect VPCs and VPN at scale
  • Learn how to get started with AWS Transit Gateway
