ARCCN at 2016’ Cnews Conference on Cloud TechnologiesThis year’s CNews Conference on Cloud Technologies took place on February 11, 2016 at Golden Ring Hotel, Moscow.
Cloud technologies are no longer just a topic of discussion and are currently under implementation in many companies. IT analysts consider that the demand for cloud services in business communications is rapidly growing. Today cloud services are the fastest-growing ICT sector. This year, the global public cloud services market will grow by 16.5 per cent on last year’s total of $175 billion in sales, according to market analyst Gartner. Total sales of the various cloud services will be worth $204 billion, it forecast. Last year the Russian cloud market grew by 25% – to 16.5 billion rubles – and will double in size by 2018 and reach 32 billion rubles.

Sergey Monin, ARCCN, talked about the differences between Telco Cloud and Data Center Cloud and presented ARCCN solution Cloud Conductor (C2). Cloud Conductor (C2) – network function virtualization platform (NFV) designed to support complete virtual network function life-cycle. The C2 platform allows Telco operators and DC operators to “cloudify” there services, providing flexible configuration, HA, scalability to whole their infrastructure functionality. Basing the infrastructure management principles on NFV paradigm provides operators more effectively utilizes the compute/storage/network resources and to use network functions from third-party companies. All this benefits minimizes OPEXes and time to market of new cloud services.
In general, all participants agreed that, despite the difficult economic situation, the market of cloud computing will continue to develop itself, especially since the crisis is forcing us to abandon the expensive projects on construction of our own IT infrastructure and to draw our attention towards cloud providers’ services.
