Latin American telecom carriers, such as Liberty Latin America, are accelerating their cloud migration in order to save money and improve operational efficiency.
“The strategy is to have a public-private cloud mix, keeping latency-sensitive applications local in our private cloud and moving less critical infrastructure to the public cloud,” chief technology and product officer Aamir Hussain tells BNamericas.
As part of a multi-cloud strategy, the company has turned to numerous cloud providers, including Microsoft. It is evaluating a number of server and storage options in order to maximise computational power and reduce storage costs.
“We have been working with our vendors to deploy the portions of our new platforms that are available to be hosted in the public cloud while migrating our core network components to virtual and containerized solutions in our private cloud,” Hussain adds.
LLA intends to obtain cloud benefits primarily by reducing the time-to-market for new product releases. In addition to its own cloud transformation, the company provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and Backup as a Service to its B2B customers, all of which are delivered from 11 commercial datacenters in the region.
