Virtualization Co-Residence with Singlewire InformaCast

Learn more about the requirements for running Singlewire InformaCast co-resident with Cisco Unified Communications Manager in a virtualized server environment.



We're talking with Jerry Steinhauer, Chief Technology Officer at Singlewire, about virtualization co-residence support. Can you talk to us about what this is and what it means?

Sure, so for those who haven't heard, Cisco is in the process of migrating the environment in which Communications Manager runs, you know back about 5 years ago or so now they migrated from a Windows environment to a Linux environment, and at the time, you would install that on a bare metal server, so if you needed two Communications Managers, you would have two servers.

If you needed Unity server, a Unity connection for voicemail you have a third server, if you needed a CUP server for Presence, you'd have a fourth server and on and on and on so, Cisco, as many companies have, has gotten into the virtualization game. And what this means is that now virtual machines essentially become like building blocks where you can take capacity that are provided by a server and service one or more virtual machines on top of what you used to use that sent physical footprint that used to handle only one server can now handle several or many depending on the server that's being installed, the amount of RAM, the amount of disk, and the amount of CPU.

InformaCast Virtual Appliance - Easier and Cheaper to Implement

Singlewire’s new InformaCast Virtual Appliance allows customers to easily deploy InformaCast in virtualized server environments. 

InformaCast Virtual Appliance is an alternative way for deploying InformaCast within an organization. Making use of virtualized server environments, InformaCast Virtual Appliance can be installed by downloading a single file that contains the InformaCast application and an operating system. Engineers simply install and configure the virtual appliance in their virtual environment using standard deployment practices. InformaCast users can then access the application via a secure web portal in the same way they would if InformaCast was deployed on a physical server.

InformaCast Virtual Appliance provides a lower cost of ownership to customers because a traditional Windows server license and maintenance costs are no longer necessary. It also allows users to deploy InformaCast more quickly.
