Deploying OSS in public cloud can simplify OSS software upgrades and allow you to test new features in a sandbox environment. Many operators are also finding a significant cost advantage – public cloud providers have huge economies of scale that make them more efficient at hosting IT workloads than the largest of telecom operators. But how do CSPs and their OSS suppliers migrate these applications to public cloud? Is it a simple lift and shift or does it require some tinkering? Does the entire application need to be refactored?
This paper explores these issues and provides a case study on a leading tier-1 telecom operator that has migrated to a cloud native order and service orchestration system running in public cloud.
