Download: The Virtualisation of Video Conferencing Infrastructure

Server Virtualization has been a top priority for IT for many years – its benefits include improving infrastructure manageability, improving Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, offering load balancing, failover & scalability, reducing maintenance, as well as being less expensive, having a lower total cost of ownership and being easier to expand.

However, Video Conferencing has generally remained non-virtualized with specialized Hardware, as it traditionally relies on very compute intensive processes for interoperability and performance, which has been very hard to match with software running on standard servers. Now, recent improvements in server technology and developments in processor capability is enabling Video Conferencing to catch up with the rest of the IT world.
