Starting today, AWS Application Migration Service (AWS MGN) provides an action for Replatforming workloads using AWS App2Container (A2C). You can now use Application Migration Service to replatform applications running on migrated servers into Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and AWS App Runner. The new feature provides support for replatforming .NET and Java based applications, including containerizing .NET framework based applications to Windows containers, and replatforming JBoss, Apache Tomcat, Java, and .NET core applications to Linux containers. For each migrated server, you can generate application container images, Dockerfiles, and CloudFormation artifacts required to deploy to Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, or AWS App Runner.

Application Migration Service minimizes time-intensive, error-prone manual processes by automating the conversion of your source servers to run natively on AWS. It also helps you simplify modernization of your migrated applications by allowing you to select predefined and custom automation options during migration. AWS App2Container is a tool for migrating and modernizing Java and .NET web applications into container format.

This feature is now available in all of the AWS Commercial Regions where Application Migration Service is available. Access the AWS Regional Services List for the most up-to-date availability information.
