Why are born-in-the-cloud applications not typically monoliths?
Azure can support both monolithic and cloud-native architectures. This section will look at both approaches, keeping in mind that cloud native is the preferred approach if possible.
Can you migrate a monolith to Azure?
- Over 400 vCPUs for applications that can take advantage of multiple CPUs
- Compute-optimized VMs to provide fast clock speed or memory
- High input/output operations per second (IOPS) and data throughput for batch applications
- Proximity placement groups that allow minimal latency between VMs
With these capabilities, Azure can handle most mainframe workloads easily for both scalability and performance without taking advantage of Azure cloud-native features.
