In his VoiceCon keynote, Siemens CEO O’Neill announced a deal to run Siemens OpenScape software on the Amazon EC2 cloud. The move is a very important step in our view because it illustrates that the cloud could well become a major repository for service features and create an implementation of the new service layer.

OpenScape is an enterprise server-based UC system of course, but if it can be hosted on a cloud, so could a provider-based system. The choice of EC2 is also enlightening; the Amazon model has become everyone’s darling, and we believe that it’s currently the best out there.
