Previous section: Provision cloud resources when migrating from Amazon Web Services
This article describes the migration of a .NET web application from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Rackspace Cloud. It takes an estimated 30 minutes to complete, if you follow the instructions step by step.
The topology of the application in this scenario is represented in the following figure:
Install the Rackspace Cloud Files client as follows:
Connect to the AWS instance by using Remote Desktop Connection.
After you are connected, install an FTP client application that you will use to back up data to Rackspace Cloud Files. You can use any browser to download the client.
Create a connection to Rackspace Cloud Files by using your Rackspace account user name and API key. You will use this connection to back up data during the migration steps.
Install IIS 8 by using the instructions located at https://www.iis.net/learn/get-started/whats-new-in-iis-8/installing-iis-8-on-windows-server-2012 .
Using the FTP client that you installed in the preceding section, upload the .NET project folder to the Rackspace Cloud Files container that you created in the article Provision cloud resources when migrating from Amazon Web Services.
Connect to your Rackspace Cloud Servers instance by using Remote Desktop Connection.
Copy the .NET web application folder from the Cloud Files container to the cloud server at the following location:
Open IIS Manager, click Add Website, and enter details: site name, physical path, and host name.
After the website is created, stop the Default Web Site pre-installed application and start your web application.
Click on Browse *:80 (http) to see the application in the browser.
