Benefits of Deploying on a Public Cloud
Enterprises are already deploying SBCs in their own private clouds and that makes sense based on specific requirements for ownership control and oftten specific privacy concerns. However, over the past 18 months the major hyperscalers (Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Microsoft Azure) have all brought out offers that are aimed at enterprises deploying communication services on a public cloud.
By moving from a private to public cloud an enterprise has a lot to gain. They can achieve much faster time-to-market than having to procure, install, and implement the required compute, networking and storage infrastructure on their own private cloud. They can reduce operating costs by eliminating the need for ongoing maintenance of the cloud infrastructure for an SBC because the public cloud provider handles this now. And they will gain flexibility and cost control when scaling SBC capacity, because public cloud resources are available on a subscription basis.
