Unified Communications (UC) is the integration of real-time communication services for the enterprise, including instant messaging, voice, presence, mobility, audio/video conferencing, interactive collaboration, call control, and unified messaging. UC solutions are becoming increasingly important investments for enterprises seeking to ensure organizational productivity and responsiveness, while reducing their IT costs.
Nutanix has created validated reference architectures for major UC vendors, including Avaya, Cisco, and Microsoft. These proven solutions are enabling IT to support a wide range of deployments, ranging from mid-sized organizations where UC services live alongside other workloads such as VDI or enterprise applications, to larger organizations requiring dedicated deployments with mission-critical levels of availability.
- Eliminate separate UC silos. You can run your UC servers in the same Nutanix cluster as your database or VDI workloads, eliminating the need for separate UC racks and storage implementation costs.
- Easily add server infrastructure to scale UC application VMs. Nutanix enables you to scale both storage and compute in a simple linear fashion. With Nutanix, you can size the UC cluster for your current requirements and scale only as needed, rather than buying the entire solution upfront and massively oversizing capacity.
- Achieve fast and easy installation. You can spin up UC clusters on Nutanix quickly without complex storage network planning. With Nutanix, you can eliminate the need to have SAN experts on site for storage installation and configuration.
- Ensure high performance access for all UC servers. All unified communication virtual machines access data from the local Nutanix controller VM (CVM), avoiding the performance uncertainties of separate storage silos.
