Migrating OSS to Cloud – Why and How to Do It

Date: 27th October
Time: 3pm UK Time

If your OSS is running fine on-premises today, why would you consider running it on cloud? Well, most requests for proposal for OSS issued by CSPs now ask for cloud-native NG-OSS that can be easily hosted in cloud and leverage its infinitely scalability. There’s the agility to add compute and storage resources at the click of a button. You can simplify your OSS software upgrades and test out new features in a sandbox environment. And then there is the cost advantage – cloud providers have huge economies of scale that make them more efficient at hosting IT workloads than the largest of telecom operators.

For the OSS developer, there are big benefits, from running applications in public cloud to leveraging cheaper “hardware” as Spot Instances, using resources only when needed. There are lots of managed services you can tap into (databases, analytics tools, etc.) which simplify your own product development. But how do CSPs and their OSS suppliers migrate these applications to cloud? Is it a simple lift and shift or does it require some tinkering?
This webinar will explore these issues and answer these critical questions. It will also provide a case study on a leading tier-1 telecom operator that has migrated to a cloud-native order and service orchestration system running on AWS cloud.

Watch this webinar to learn:

  • The key advantages of running OSS on cloud
  • What cloud migration strategies CSPs are exploring for OSS
  • How a major CSP undertook this migration with one OSS and what benefits it brought
