  • MGN is limited to migrating VMs only?

    Hello, in question #36 of the Review Mode Set 4 it’s stated that MGN is limited to migrating VMs only:

    The option that says: Use the AWS Application Migration Service to migrate your servers to AWS. Set up Amazon EC2 instances to re-host your IBM WebSphere and IBM DB2 servers separately. Re-host and migrate the IBM MQ service to Amazon SQS Standard Queue is incorrect because the AWS Application Migration Service simply automates the migration of your on-premises VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V/SCVMM virtual machines to the AWS Cloud. This service is limited to migrating virtual machines (VMs) only. Moreover, you can’t re-host and migrate your IBM MQ service to Amazon SQS. A better solution is to re-platform IBM MQ to Amazon MQ.

    This is false, as we can see in the AWS MGN docs under Use Cases:

    Migrate applications such as SAP, Oracle, and SQL Server running on physical servers, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and other on-premises infrastructure.

    Moreover, in the same question set in question #29 there’s the correct information about MGN:

    AWS Application Migration Service (MGN) is a highly automated lift-and-shift (rehost) solution that simplifies, expedites, and reduces the cost of migrating applications to AWS. It enables companies to lift and shift a large number of physical, virtual, or cloud servers without compatibility issues, performance disruption, or long cutover windows. MGN replicates source servers into your AWS account.

    Please fix the misleading information in the question #36.

    Hi fancypants,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will do the necessary update, and this should be reflected in our practice test as soon as possible.

    Best Regards,
    JR @ Tutorials Dojo
