Open Source Modernization U2L Platform Migration-
Largest Communications Services Provider in Malaysia

CHALLENGES

  • Malaysia’s leading and largest Communications Services Provider embarked on several initiatives to reduce cost, increase the value and choice of technology to stay competitive in the market.
  • The Client wanted a cost effective solution by finding alternate to their current proprietary OS and hardware.
  • The Client also wanted to avoid vendor lock-in. – RISC-based system tends to lock an organization into the vendor’s higher-priced hardware and software platform, resulting in higher switching and migration costs.
  • Sudden change in discontinuity of support for HP-UX on proprietary RISC-based hardware by Application and Database vendor

SOLUTIONS

  • ABYRES proposed and implemented a solution that includes migrating mission critical system from proprietary, closed infrastructure based on UNIX-On-RISC architecture to industry standard / open systems based on the x86 architecture.
  • The U2L Migration approach comprises of:
    • OS – Migrate applications and database from UNIX platform to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) solutions.
    • Hardware – Powerful and cost-effective Industry-Standard (x86) servers with choice of hardware vendors
    • Mission critical support (Remedial, Proactive, and onsite) by ABYRES Support.

RESULTS/BENEFITS

  • ABYRES’s solution offered the Client with high performance, features & support without the lock-in and high cost associated with proprietary OS and hardware.
  • This solution provided additional capacity, better system and application performance, and improved business continuity.
  • Improved RHEL support for virtualization, clustering and high availability technologies
  • Significant Cost Savings - Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), No License fee
  • This solution provided the Clients with architecture, financial, and operational flexibility to choose the best hardware platform that meets rapidly changing business requirements
  • Lower software maintenance licensing costs compared to proprietary RISC-based OS costs

Open Source Middleware (Java & ColdFusion Server) -
Largest Communications Services Provider in Malaysia

CHALLENGES

  • Malaysia’s leading and largest Communications Services Provider embarked on several initiatives to reduce cost, increase the value and choice of technologies to stay competitive in the market.
  • The Client used multiple types of Application Server Platform for its Java workloads in disparate environments – Dev, Test and Production. The Client was running WebSphere in production mostly on IBM proprietary UNIX OS and hardware, while development done on community-based Tomcat/Geronimo and Intel x86 servers.
  • The Client experienced increased CAPEX and OPEX using proprietary middleware on RISC based Systems and Hardware Platform.
  • The Client was looking for options to end vendor lock-in and to have choice of technologies and alternatives for:
    • Database – IBM OIO and HP Superdome architecture
    • Middleware – Proprietary P Series-based WebSphere Application Server (WAS)

SOLUTIONS

  • ABYRES modernized and standardized their environments (development, testing and production environments) based on Enterprise open source and open standards-based Application Server platform solutions.
    • Database Servers Migration – Enterprise Linux on Industry based x86 Platform for Oracle Database Systems.
    • Middleware Migration – Migration of WAS application to JBOSS EAP with domain cluster capabilities, ensuring full HA of applications environment.
    • Migration of mission critical applications including Mediation core system from UNIX to Linux( RHEL + VM) environment.
    • Mission critical support (Remedial, Proactive and onsite) by ABYRES Support.

RESULTS/BENEFITS

  • ABYRES’s solution offered the Client with relatively same feature sets and Java standards support without the lock-in and high cost associated with WebSphere and WebLogic.
  • Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and cost savings
  • By migrating to JBOSS, the Client was able to harness JBOSS EAP platform from development, SIT, UAT, Production and DR environment due to its flexible and cost effective nature.
    • The solution also allowed the Client to take advantage to standardize their development tools using JBOSS Developer Studio based on the open source Eclipse bundled with the JBOSS subs.

Open Source Middleware (Java & ColdFusion) -
Largest Communications Services Provider in Malaysia

CHALLENGES

  • Malaysia’s leading and largest Communications Services Provider embarked on several initiatives to reduce cost, increase the value and choice of technology to stay competitive in the market.
  • Significant number of the Client’s Application were running on ColdFusion-based application server, while a small number were running on PHP
  • In order to be in-line with the Client’s policy of using either Java or .NET platform for application development, the Client needed to migrate their entire ColdFusion applications & platform into their certified blueprint and platform.
  • The Client was looking into a cost effective migration leveraging their current infrastructure & architecture as the application and platform temporary home – JBoss, Oracle 11G, private cloud etc
  • The new platform was expected to be able to run the existing application with minimal changes due to the criticality level of the application

SOLUTIONS

  • ABYRES proposed a Migration Methodology to migrate data, application and other related components of the Client’s infrastructure into the new platform while minimizing changes and possible disruptions to the operations.
    • Infrastructure Migration – From the Client’s current Infra to JBoss + Lucee + RHEL + Private Cloud
  • ABYRES assisted on building the entire environment of development, test, and production environment for the entire application platform.
  • ABYRES ensured that the entire infrastructure platform is fully supported and operationalized while the Client planned on the code base and platform migration in-line with their blueprint.
  • Mission critical support (Remedial, Proactive and onsite) by ABYRES Support.

RESULTS/BENEFITS

  • ABYRES’s solution offered the Client with full clustering & load balancing, centralized management, and successful migration from ColdFusion to JBOSS + Open Source Lucee Server infrastructure.
  • This solution offered the Client with relatively same feature sets and Java standards support without the lock-in and high cost associated with ColdFusion.
  • Cost Savings - Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), No License fee

Enterprise Data Lake -
Largest Communications Services Provider in Malaysia

CHALLENGES

  • A Telco Business Critical Application faced with challenges and constraints inheritant to traditional data platform
    • 300+ large data volumes and data sources under BSS/OSS systems such as Billing systems, CDR, Mediation (sources)
    • Ingestions of table to complete within the data transfer window was a challenge

SOLUTIONS

  • ABYRES built and deployed an Enterprise Data Lake using Big Data platform for the business critical application managing data reconciliation and revenue leakage.
  • The application leverages on Hadoop and Spark as the key Big Data Platform.
  • Leveraging key open source technologies and solutions such as Hortonworks HDP & HDF, Talend Big Data Platform, JBOSS Data Virtualization.
  • Approximately currently running in 12 nodes prod (and growing) – resources 660 cores, 2.2TB RAM and 360TB Storage.

RESULTS/BENEFITS

  • In the earlier phase of development environment, entry level Hadoop Cluster Nodes with 50TB Storage
  • Projected infra around 35 nodes with 600TB usable storage by 2018.
  • Storing daily snapshots of raw data at 1TB uncompressed per day
