Avaya virtualizes UC Aura platform

By Brandon Butler, Network World |  Unified Communications, Avaya

Enterprises seem open to the idea of virtualizing their UC platforms, says Lazar, the Nemertes analyst. Concerns around performance lag when running virtualized environments are beginning to fade. If systems are architected to the specifications the vendors provide, latency should not be an issue, he says, even in a virtualized environment. Large enterprises and service providers, he believes would have the most use for this technology. A virtualized Aura platform could make it easier for Avaya channel partners to create cloud and managed hosted versions of UC platforms for customers, he notes.
