Galactic Fog Launches Container Migration Utility to Make it Easy to Move Amazon ECS Containers to Kubernetes

The Gestalt Migration Utility (GMU) Helps Realize the Goal of Cloud Native Technologies to Enable Seamless Portability Between Container Technologies and Cloud Providers

SEATTLE, Washington, Dec. 11, 2018 — Today, at KubeCon North America 2018 Galactic Fog announced the launch of the GestaltMigration Utility (GMU) which makes it easy to migrate containers between different formats and across both public and private cloud platforms. As a longtime member of the CNCF, Galactic Fog believes that for enterprises to be truly cloud native, they should not be locked in to a single technology – containeror otherwise.

With the launch of GMU, development and operations teams working with containers can easily launch an instance of Gestalt in Google Cloud Platform and migrate containers from older formats like Amazon ECS, Docker Swarm or Mesosphere DC/OS to hosted Kubernetes solutions like Amazon EKS, Google GKE or Microsoft AKS.

According to Galactic Fog CEO, Daniel Lizio-Katzen, “since containers started to become popular in 2014, the goal of their users has been to reduce the management, resource and cost overhead of virtual machines and operating systems; with the launch of GMUwe’re solving this issue and enabling enterprises to feel secure that whicheverKubernetes distribution they decide to adopt, they will still be able to easilymigrate their containerized applications across clouds and providers.”

“Galactic Fog was founded with the guiding principle of enabling developers and enterprises to future proof their applications and infrastructure,” said Anthony Skipper, founder and CTO of Galactic Fog; “today, with GMU we’re launching the first publicly available tool that makes it easy to move your containers between technologies and across clouds.”

Using the open source function-as-a-service (FaaS) Lambda Application SERver (LASER) framework – developed by Galactic Fog- GMU can easily be updated by its users to accommodate additional K8S distributions as they are developed. To date, Gestalt users have employed GMU to seamlessly move containers from Amazon ECS to Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and Amazon EKS as well as from on-premise deployments of Pivotal Kubernetes Service (PKS) and RedHat OpenShift to both EKS and GKE.
