How Virtualization Meets Today's Most Challenging Mission-Critical Workloads
TMCnet Web Editor
If I asked a group of 1,000 people to name the top three trends or buzzwords in tech and communications right now, there’s a high probably that “cloud” and “virtualization” are among almost all of the responses. Cloud computing has spread to real-time communications software, leading to many virtual unified communications (UC) solutions, or the move from hardware-based communications to software versions. Virtual UC networks can reduce costs, improve business agility, increase productivity, enhance the customer experience and centralize administration and systems.
IT leaders who strive to deliver a dynamic communications environment need to harness the power of software and virtualization. So, how do you get started?
IDC (News - Alert) research predicts that there will be 10 million telecommuters in the U.S. by the end of 2013. Organizations need to embrace these remote workers and learn to monitor productivity while also securing networks and data. Cloud and a multitude of UC are changing business communications and operations. There are a lot of questions and challenges when it comes to virtualization and UC. How do you empower end users with flexibility but still maintain security? How can you optimize your network but keep costs down?
On Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 12 p.m. EDT/9 a.m. PDT, Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst at ZK Research, and David Tipping (News - Alert), vice president and general manager of Sonus SBC Business, will discuss how virtualization meets today’s most challenging mission-critical workloads by delivering better scale and utilization while lowering hardware costs and operating expenses in a webinar, “Three Keys to UC Virtualization.”
Webinar attendees will learn how virtualization can reduce human capital data center costs from 40 percent to 30 percent, how to increase communication technology utilization to more than 70 percent with virtualization, and how virtualization of session border controllers can drive significant savings in TCO and increase service agility by turning up functionality in minutes instead of days.
