We are in the age of "Cloud ". Now a days, all applications are being moved to cloud and hosted remotely somewhere in the data center at cloud service provider's server.
As we understand, currently for all network vendor's, they have their own dedicated hardware for server and NMS applications is being hosted in primary and secondary servers respectively. Let us say , I would need dedicated server space in private cloud for hosting NMS application ( Ciena Network or any other ) with below requirements:
- 12 Cores of processing power
- 64GB of RAM
- 3 Disks of least 300GB
- 1GB Ethernet Network Interface
What are advantages and disadvantages of Hosting NMS application in Private Cloud ( Primary and Backup) ? Is there any security issues ?
In current scenario, most of the service provider have their own dedicated hardware of NMS server?
