Are you looking for a way to migrate your applications to the cloud? If so, you should definitely consider using AWS Application Migration Service (AWS MGN). AWS MGN is a great option for a number of reasons, including its low cost, easy of use, and reliability. Keep reading to learn more about why AWS MGN is the best way to migrate your applications to the cloud.

What Is AWS MGN?

AWS MGN is a cloud-based application migration service that helps organizations move their existing applications to the AWS cloud. AWS MGN automates many of the complex tasks associated with migrating applications, such as provisioning servers and configuring networking. Even better, AWS MGN is designed to work with a wide variety of applications, including those that are legacy or have customizations.

Why Use AWS MGN?

AWS Application Migration Service (MGN) is the primary service recommended to migrate your applications to AWS and also a highly automated lift-and-shift (rehost) solution that simplifies, expedites, and reduces the cost of migrating applications to AWS. It enables companies to lift-and-shift a large number of physical, virtual, or cloud servers without compatibility issues, performance disruption, or long cutover windows. MGN replicates source servers into your AWS account. When you’re ready, it automatically converts and launches your servers on AWS so you can quickly benefit from the cost savings, productivity, resilience, and agility of the Cloud.

With Application Migration Service, you can migrate your applications from physical infrastructure, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), and other clouds to AWS.

Once your applications are running on AWS, you can leverage AWS services and capabilities to quickly and easily replatform or refactor those applications – which makes lift-and-shift a fast route to modernization.

Application Migration Service currently supports the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo).
