Which 6 R Application Modernization Framework on Google Cloud Best Suits Your Organization?

Cloud-based application modernisation is an absolute need for revitalising IT processes and expanding delivery and service experiences. As a result of the absence of app modernization on cloud expertise, however, the majority of organisations just lift and transfer their apps, resulting in severely constrained and decreased performance. The comprehensive cloud strategy, development, full-stack architecture, maintenance, and security engineers at CDWT operate as an extended team to update a client’s application environment end-to-end on Google Cloud.

Using the sophisticated 6 R Methodology, rehash and reboot your apps to uncover further agility, improved performance, and end-user excellence on a GCP-powered backend. Modernize old on-premises systems and apps. Optimize and manage applications with consistent development and reliability engineering to innovate more quickly in response to business objectives and consumer requests.

REPURCHASE (Drop and Shop)

This phase entails minimum changes to transition to a cloud-based system. The business abandons its on-premises software licence and migrates to the cloud-based version of the same software, effectively repurchasing the licence.

REHOST (Lift and Shift)

Identify the apps and current workloads that need to be lifted and shifted to the cloud environment. The migration utilises cutting-edge native tools and support services to migrate the current on-premises application stack to the cloud.

REPLATFORM (Lift, Change, Shift)

This procedure employs the same methods as the migration of on-premises platforms and applications to the cloud ecosystem. In this case, however, adjustments are performed to optimise the cloud performance of the platforms.


Existing on-premises programmes, databases, and workloads are extensively overhauled, often at the coding level, in order to migrate them to the cloud. This phase or strategy requires the greatest effort and expenditure. In this phase, it is usual practise to divide monolithic structures into microservice designs for improved cloud performance. As the programme is modified to fit the cloud's natural environment, such an approach guarantees that the greatest capabilities of the cloud are used.


This method includes the identification of duplicate apps or platforms that might result in needless cloud load/overprovisioning, hence driving up operating expenses. Under such situations, businesses may decide to retire and replace the application with a cloud-friendly one.


Businesses may choose to keep certain old on-premises apps operational if they give high performance and are related to crucial initiatives. In such a scenario, the remaining core systems may function in the cloud, while the maintained on-premises applications may work independently or in tandem with the cloud applications through APIs.

Monolithic architectures, which have powered legacy systems and software for decades, are increasingly being replaced. Due to their unsurpassed rigidity, conventional architectures make it difficult for engineers to detect code faults or implement significant changes. With the cloud revolution driving updated development environments, deconstruct historical systems and create new software in a powerfully modularized manner: abstracted components devoted to executing important functions, woven into a central whole with the aid of innovative tools. Such modularized, self-sufficient software parts make it simple to identify faults, push updates, and automate the delivery process for quicker provisioning and operation in live situations. This also helps with load distribution and traffic management. Individual server functions executing each microservice segment may be individually scaled up or down depending on traffic needs without impacting the overall performance of the programme, hence eliminating server overprovisioning and lowering costs.

GCP Serverless Architecture Application Security and Event Management on Google Cloud Platform Architecture of Compliance-Ready Applications on GCP Planning for DRP and Business Continuity on GCP Microservices using GCP

If microservices are believed to revolutionise how applications and software are produced or constructed, Serverless or Functions-as-a-Service assures that the same are executed in an agile and transformational manner on the cloud. Once the produced code is transferred to the cloud using this method, the microservice modules or functions are given separate servers/fire only when the specific function is invoked, hence eliminating idle running or overprovisioning. Under this design, the company just pushes the modules to the cloud environment, and the cloud environment handles the rest, including assigning servers to execute the modules. Adopt the Functions-as-a-Service methodology for the app modernization process, covering frontend applications, middleware, operating systems, libraries, frameworks, APIs, and virtual machines. Integrate microservices design with containerization in order to maximise FaaS on GCP. Using serverless event processing, design and construct the architecture of an event-driven application that consumes data streams, processes them in the cloud, and synchronises the results back to back-end databases with zero data loss, zero disturbance, and ultra-low latency.

Google Cloud Application Modernization – FAQ’s

Application modernization in the cloud entails modifying, re-architecting, or refining applications to integrate and function without interruption on the chosen cloud platform.

Legacy programmes are often hardwired to certain systems, kernels, or backends; hence, merely lifting and shifting them to the cloud results in poor performance.

Modernizing programmes should be at the top of corporate owners' to-do lists for maximising the benefits of sophisticated cloud architecture and ensuring optimal workload performance.
Application modernisation may be accomplished via the 6 Rs, or Repurchase, Rehost, Replatform, Refactor, Retire, and Retain. The first strategy is a straightforward migration of on-premises software to its cloud-based counterpart, which entails changing licencing.

Rehosting entails moving apps as-is to the cloud environment, while Replatforming entails the same process but with a few adjustments for enhanced cloud performance.

Refactoring or re-architecting programmes entails breaking down monolithic structures into smaller modules or microservices and rebuilding codebases in order to not only move them to the cloud but also make them cloud-ready end-to-end.

Retire and Retain refers to the replacement of obsolete, superfluous software and the retention of current, mission-critical on-premises programmes, respectively.
Application modernization influences the whole lifetime, inputs, and outputs of the application.

Consequently, in order to properly modernize apps, businesses must remodel app databases, fine-tune database management systems, adjust application networks-protocols-libraries, customize servers, connect with DevOps, and simplify app security.

Firms may execute the aforementioned without interruption by using the services of application modernization partners like CDWT or native cloud-tools.
