Transformation Advisor 3.3 is now available and packed with great new features as well as essential fixes. The main new feature in 3.3 is what we are calling Cluster Migration. TA's data collector can now detect WebSphere ND clusters when scanning, collect all the relevant information and recommend an equivalent deployment configuration on Kubernetes. The clusters are shown on the TA UI. The entire WebSphere ND Cluster can be migrated as a single migration plan to deploy all the clustered applications to a single Liberty instance. We have also extended that capability to groups, so if you have non-clustered applications that you want to be co-located, then you can also deploy them together from a Group in TA to a single Liberty instance.
Also new in 3.3 is TA utilising the WebSphere Liberty Operator, so when deploying your app to the WebSphere Liberty target, the migration plan will use the latest WebSphere Liberty Operator.
Another improvement of note in 3.3 is to TA's airgap install by utilising the new ibm-pak plugin. The plugin streamlines the deployment of Transformation Advisor in an OpenShift disconnected environment.
And finally, the entire ruleset has been overhauled with updated development efforts and severities that reflect the latest best practice for application modernization.
