Cloudhouse is the Preferred Partner for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) End-of-Support Migration Programme for Windows Server (EMP) service. It’s now possible to migrate legacy workloads to modern Windows platforms on AWS EC2.
The AWS End-of-Support Migration Program for Windows server (EMP) gives AWS customers a migration path to AWS EC2 for legacy applications dependent on Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2
Cloudhouse is proud to have been selected as the Preferred Partner globally for AWS EMP.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have not been supported since January 14, 2020.
So customers with business critical applications reliant on these platforms have either had to leave them on an unsupported platform, or migrate them to an alternative cloud provider.
EMP gives the option to migrate these applications to AWS by leveraging specialist application compatibility packaging technology.
The application packaging technology isolates the application from the underlying Operating System, enabling the migration of applications to a newer, supported version of Windows Server on AWS.
NOTE: (i) no additional licensing is required to leverage EMP on AWS, it is included in EC2 subscriptions; (ii) customers and partners delivering AWS migration projects will need to incorporate application compatibility packaging into their delivery programmes and services; (iii) EMP is not applicable for AWS Workspaces or AppStream 2.0. if you have a requirement to migrate legacy applications to these services, contact us here.
