Click2Cloud OpenShift Toolkit is an application platform that allows users to build, test, deploy, and run their applications with automatic scaling. It provides a fully-fledged environment for development projects and aligns with the standard workflows. Click2Cloud OpenShift is developed mainly for .NET Developers to support an application lifecycle and seamless deployment in Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Click2Cloud’s OpenShift deployment of .NET Legacy IT modernization app provides a platform where developers need not re-build, re-code, re-write, re-factor or re-host. It provides a builder image which helps in reducing the efforts and brings it to encapsulation and rebuild only. With Click2Cloud’s .NET Legacy app modernization C2C builder image, one can easily deploy the code from any of the repositories be it GIT, TFS, IDE, or any other to OpenShift in a very simple and easy way.
It also saves windows licensing costs. Click2Cloud’s OpenShift .NET Development Tool Kit has a Dev-Ops Extension; Visual Studio 2012 + Dev-Ops Extension. This extension allows users to connect to their OpenShift environment from their Microsoft Visual Studio IDE and helps them to create, manage, and deploy the .NET application to OpenShift cloud. It provides users with cloud-native support. Also, it saves the CapEx and OpEx by moving to OpenShift. RedHat OpenShift legacy app supports heterogeneous technologies like .NET, Java, FoxPro, etc. This approach is one of the fastest ways to modernize .NET Legacy apps to RedHat OpenShift. Modernization of applications has resulted in better code, well-managed databases, and platforms that reduce the time and cost of projects and improve business.
User can manage their legacy IT modernization application which helps them in their improved business, decreased cost, aligned business and IT, improved compliance, easy maintenance, reduced complexity, and dependency. Developers don’t need to leave their IDE, which saves substantial time and energy. Also, the code can be stored on the local machine and debugged before publishing to the staging and production environment which is helpful for developers. With this OpenShift.NET Development Tool Kit, Enterprise can create their own OpenShift Cloud within their premise and also on Microsoft Azure, AWS, and all the other IaaS platforms. The OpenShift.NET Development Tool Kit comes with various cartridges for OpenShift and plugin. The cartridges provide the run-time environment to build and run the applications.
