Data Centers (DCs) form a critical part of the Telecom Services business apart from the core networking infrastructure. The size and sprawl of computing and storage resources of DCs have grown over the years running hundreds or thousands of applications. The scale and availability requirements have been largely driven by application performance needs.
The first challenge is to build elasticity of DC infrastructure in the public cloud with increasing demand for telecom services. Secondly, the challenge is to migrate application workloads to AWS Cloud in a phased manner without business disruption.
Enterprise Applications can quickly reach thousands of transactions per second through multiple ingress points. It also depends on the expected response times for data upload and retrieval.
AWS offers a full suite of services for building and hosting next-generation applications and related data. But this comes with complexity as there are millions of ways to use AWS and many companies do not get it. This results in unnecessary cloud spending, manual effort, and potential operational risk.
It’s about knowing how to balance workload patterns to determine the optimal AWS resources to contain them. Cloud migration could involve application optimization at times to achieve this.
AWS is evolving. If a new update comes, a strategy that worked yesterday will not be effective tomorrow. The challenge is not only to update applications and their settings in the cloud but also to check whether the service is best suited for the application.
By application optimization on AWS, the organization can bridge the gaps between Developers, Infrastructure & Operations. It’s a long-tail game, but companies can maximize performance and prepare to face new challenges.
