Virtualizing UC&C: The Role of Hyperconvergence

Enterprises have been migrating Unified Communications & Collaboration applications to datacenters – “private clouds” – for the past few years. With this move comes the opportunity to leverage datacenter compute and storage trends – often called “hyperconvergence” – to improve UC&C installation and performance. 

Hyperconvergence is already powering the mission-critical datacenters of companies such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook; this webinar will help you understand how these trends can now help your UC&C deployment. Our presenters will show you how:

  • Web-scale architectures and hyperconverged infrastructures work and the benefits they provide
  • Hyperconvergence reduces management overhead
  • Enterprise storage features can protect your critical UC applications
  • Hyperconvergence lets you scale your UC deployment on demand
