Digging Deeper: Application Migration (Part 2)

Jimmy Ray Purser,

As we continue on through the Illumio Stargate, we punch up our DHD for Disaster Recovery and then move on to one of our more common tasks: moving applications between environments. This could be stuff like application life cycle management or auto scaling workloads for seasonality. Heck man, it could be anything that causes a change to application security.

Before we shot this video, I thought disaster recovery was going to be a stretch with the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP). Turns out, I really underestimated the power of Illumio's RAEL labeling system. (RAEL refers to a workoad's Role, Application, Environment, and Location.) Keep an eye on this throughout the video to see the true multidimensionality of having such a flexible system. Then consider how long would it take to do the same thing without the ASP.

To finish up this two-part series, I jump into a more common task of moving apps through their development life cycle, so from DEV to PROD, etc. We all know someone that self created a RGE (Resume Generating Event) by allowing unauthorized access to an asset OR by turning off a service without knowing exactly what it connected to at the other end. Just take a look at your firewall rules and check out the last time they were updated. I’m an engineer, too, so I’m a big believer in “If it ain’t broke…”
