The modern era of the 21st century demands newness in the service and with that security and privacy. It is like big companies and vendors like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Dropbox, Citrix, Microsoft, or Google all of them are using the basic principle which is related to all sync and copy to centralized cloud server cluster via the internet.
There are millions of users and their devices that are getting connected every second to these central cloud clusters to store the data and along with that access the files that are associated with their online accounts. The modern generation and stories demand the integration of AWS cloud and this is termed to be one of the greatest successes too. But a matter of fact is that the centralized server architecture has its shortcomings.
Now let us proceed further and check some of the details this is as mentioned below.
The Driving Force
The ever increasing need and demand to do more is with regards to the IT infrastructure continues to drive interest in and getting the process of adopting the cloud computing and virtualization. Business products and consumer services are highly dependent on cloud computing services. This is one of the simplest forms as well. These services and solutions are delivered and consumed in real-time over the internet.
It was since the 1960s, the evolution is done through several phases that are ranging from grid and utility computing, and this is with application service provision (ASP), and software as a Service (SaaS) to name a few of the major ones. As of today, there are numerous markets, economic, and technological forces that are driving the enterprise to indeed adopt the cloud services and its culture.
The use of service orientation, visualization, and standardization which is held via computing through the internet is fueling to a great extent and this is therefore increasing the need for shifting to the cloud. According to the belief of the analyst, it is predicted that the current decade will be surely witnessing a great and a huge increase in the workplace that is and will be globally running the corporate-supplied videoconferencing from their desktop. The said statement and prediction turned out to be true in this 2020 year of the pandemic of Covid-19.
Also, this is considered primarily due to having a significant reduction of up to 50% of the budget and that is concerning the travel budgets and a shirking world that is due to the new communication avenues. Any business that faces the issues of downtimes, disasters such as total server failure, pre-failure warning on a shared disk array, high CPU utilization, and natural disaster at the data center site can result in the loss of huge revenues and cost of investment. This is like that no business would be wanting to have such a situation. With the increase in CAPEX and maintenance costs poses and tends to have major business challenges on telcos.
Having a system that has AWS centralized in the infrastructure provides massively scalable IT-related capabilities and that is with regards to the services for multiple external customers. This is why the users are focusing more on what the service is delivering rather than how keeping an eye on its implementation or hosting. The possibilities thus increase enormously and open up possibilities such as procuring computational facilities on demand, storage services to software to video for IT leaders.
In the last few decades, it is seen that AWS infrastructure has been commoditized and the communication channel and services are becoming more on web and software-centric. It is also a fact that networks are becoming more wide and open, and along with that are even controllable with application software. The entire strength and capacity of the AWS Cloud Infrastructure services rely on the fact that they are providing a massively scalable platform. This underpins the economic and technological disruptions as communications capabilities move now rapidly moving away from the confines of hardware infrastructure.
The increase in demand and popularity of the cloud is pushing the enterprises to migrate from on-premise computing to access services over the Internet cloud. The enterprises are demanding for the services and the delivery of the application via private and hybrid clouds that is growing tremendously. Also, it is like the competition for the enterprise cloud customers is getting up fierce, and this is because the barriers to the market entry are getting diminished.
This is also a driving enterprise that is seeking to have the option such as IaaS where the complete costing is based on the usage of CPU, data storage, and transferring similar information to Amazon Web Services, GoGrid, and so on. Cloud brings in immense hope for leading enterprises that direct costs, indirect costs, and also overhead costs of owning a server will be reduced significantly. Cloud is already affecting UC by giving users flexibility through options such as cloud-based and hybrid environments, in addition to premises-based.
Every service that is taken into consideration always have challenges coming across. The same is with the AWS Centralization of Infrastructure process. It is that the infrastructure services are becoming more onto cloud-based service and this is because of the storage of the data, management of the content, conferencing, processing bandwidth, and network connectivity. There is a growth in the network traffic level and this is due to the cloud platforms scaling method. Providing virtual infrastructures to multiple customers simultaneously poses significant challenges as well.
Taking it further, it is a mandatory process in which the enterprise should know the whilst that is evaluating their communication infrastructure. Along with that, it is also that all the capabilities that are moving on separate tracks are now converging. Now, this is indeed one of the biggest challenges in which as the process continues, the installed base of the telephony providers will be more in threat or will be threatened. This therefore will be causing pricing changes that will result in the companies and enterprises paying up more amount.
This is also a universal fact that, even after the technology that is being changed or converging, there is no single vendor who would be able to provide or deliver a complete solution for some time. Also, we would be seeing that majority of the organizations will be compelling to need having an extended video and it will be for more workers. Hence, it will be requiring a drastic amount of increase in a cost-effective approach and it will be for deployment.
Even here the network operators are under tremendous pressure to revamp their data center resources so that they can deliver the cloud computing and XaaS to corporate customers, but with the help of finding the right enabling technologies and with the right partner. They are the ones who provided strategy and consulting services to make the happening of transition a big challenge.
Also, the network operators here will be requiring the advice of experts wherein the cloud computing is best fitted and that too with the wider spheres of IT and telecommunications. Along, with it, there is an increasing demand for the type of service and also how they can migrate to cloud computing architecture with the lowest disruption to the existing operations.
Network operators looking to harness the cloud should look to optimization and re-architecting the data center infrastructure, processes, and applications for harnessing the cloud is also an important requirement in the transition journey.
Key Trends and Opportunities
As the title itself communicates a lot many things that are related to the process of AWS centralization of infrastructure. It is that the outsourcing companies or the vendors are making it easier for the team of network operators to create and develop an entirely new cloud application and that also using the option of PaaS, bundled software stacks, and cloud operating systems. With the process of increased interest and activity in the space of the cloud, it will be prompting a great amount of urgency around the standardization and compliance efforts.
Now let us proceed further and check on the basic tiers of the service that gives the information in an accurate manner and with high precision. Tier 1 telecom operators generally will not take up shared NOC services. This is all because and due to network and data privacy issues, which is also an issue of mindset. These are most popular amongst Tier 2 and 3 telcos across the world since cost optimization is of significant concern to such operators.
Another segment that is taken into consideration is, where the shared NOC is becoming very important in the field of Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs).
Another segment where shared NOCs are becoming important is Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs). An example is one of the Telecom Equipment Manufacturer (TEM) in APAC/SAARC, which is offering their network equipment and as part of the managed services creating a shared NOC to service the various customers who have been provided with the types of equipment.
Taking it further, the shared NOC with the managed services makes sure that it offers the information to the clients in the USA and Canada with the involvement of different providers. These providers are including Mobile Telecom Operators, Wireline Telecom Service Providers, and Internet or Broadband Service Providers.
The TEM is looking towards the management of the TEMs and other multi-vendor networks. Regarding other segments of business, the IT sector and enterprises probably are already into shared NOC for Infrastructure management and P-a-a-S.
