Virtualizing your UC Network Lets You Get More with Less
Getting more out of your network is a constant focus for many enterprises in a world where success is measured in milliseconds.
Few know this better than Tac Berry, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Avaya. In this Webtorials?podcast, Berry discusses why virtualization is the name of the game when it comes to Unified Communications networks, which can yield:
· Reduced costs
· Improved business agility
· Always-ready productivity tools
· Enhanced customer experience
· Centralized administration
“Convergence … is exactly the area that we’re spending our time on right now,” Berry says. “Once we’ve added applications to a virtual environment and virtual architecture, the next step is for the customer to understand how to implement these real time applications and new infrastructure into their existing data center and network. And, of course, with many customers, this responsibility now falls to both the IT and communication departments. They are starting to say, “I need resources to run conferencing” and the IT department is saying, “I’m using those resources to do database manipulation.”
“So, how do they combine that? How do they get to one goal? How do they get the benefits of virtualization–benefits which can include the reduction of hardware, rack space, footprint, and energy consumption?”
For the answers to these crucial questions, listen to our podcast and learn how virtualization is the key to getting the most out of your Unified Communications suite.
