Welcome to the Amazon cloud

Enterprises can rewrite legacy applications and move them to the Amazon cloud with a new product from a vendor called Queplix.

Queplix recently announced QueCloud, an upgrade to a previous product that helped companies move old applications into virtualized servers based on VMware or Xen. Starting in Q4, QueCloud will support deployment of existing applications to Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud.

The target market includes companies that have invested loads of money into legacy applications that are so old they aren’t supported by the software vendor, says Queplix CTO and founder Steve Yaskin. Converting PeopleSoft or Siebel applications is one possibility.

“We take legacy systems and move them into the cloud,” Yaskin says. “The end result is a brand new application that looks, behaves and maintains workflows just like the old legacy system but there’s essentially nothing left from the legacy system. We’re not using its code.”
