JBoss EAP 7 Migration

Our expertise across JBoss EAP upgrades and cross-platform JBoss Middleware migration projects makes us the ideal choice to design and deliver your JBoss EAP 7 migration.

“With JBoss EAP 7 having been on the market since May 2016, and 7.1 expected towards the end of Q1 2017, JBoss EAP 5 and EAP 6 customers will be acutely aware that product support for those versions is moving inevitably towards the end of its lifecycle. Now more than ever, thoughts are turning to upgrade and migration, with target architectures that should be looking towards RHEL 7, EAP 7 and Java 1.8.”

and JBoss Middleware Specialist

Whether you’re an existing JBoss middleware user migrating your applications from a legacy version of Enterprise Application Platform, or looking at JBoss EAP 7 as an alternative to your current platform, we can implement a migration strategy that meets the specific requirements of your business or organisation.

For those organisations with JBoss EAP 5.x or 6.x environments, our essential JBoss EAP 7 Migration Guide by Brian Randell is intended to assist in identifying the key challenges and assist in planning the migration tasks required to deliver a successful implementation.

Our Approach

As Red Hat partners and with years of experience working on-premise in highly demanding JBoss environments for both private and public sector clients, our JBoss migration services are underpinned by an acute awareness of critical business operations. From banks to local authorities, we understand the unique challenges migration projects present in terms of business continuity and operational risk – and it is this business-oriented focus that is so highly valued by our JBoss clients.

Migration Service Outcomes

During an initial discovery, one of our Principal Consultants and JBoss experts will complete a comprehensive review of the existing client application architecture – looking at key elements such as technologies and product versions, dependencies between applications and components, security, monitoring and logging.

Key stakeholders will be involved from the beginning, with a key focus of the engagement being a discovery of business and performance objectives for the migration. Applying our knowledge of EAP 7 features and component technologies, we’ll design a target architecture as part of a migration roadmap. This document not only identifies the best approach to achieving the agreed migration outcomes, but highlights what improvements and enhancements can be achieved in the transition to JBoss EAP 7.

With a clear migration roadmap defined, we’ll continue to work with you throughout each stage of the implementation, focusing on business continuity and utilising best-practice implementation techniques gained from years of experience in DevOps consultancy - making sure that the production environment is performance-tuned and configured for optimal operation.
