server migration to the cloud

I will like to do some tests with installing some application in a Debian machine in a vmware vm in my laptop.

if everything works ok when testing the application in the vmware machine, my question will be. Is it possible to create a machine in a server hosting environment like Rackspace, and then create some sync command which will replace the information and configuration of my rackspace server with the one set in my vmware machine local in my laptop.

any advise will be appreciated.

It really depends on the application. Normally you can install an application
on a second server, copy over the configuration files and make any needed updates,
copy over the data files, then start the application. If you have a database to
store data it becomes a bit more complex, since you're not just copying files.

You might want to create a second VM and test copying the application from
one VM to another. If you can make it work on the second VM, you should be
able to copy it to the cloud.


cloud, sync
