Virtualizing VoIP

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

Two of the hottest technologies over the past few years have been virtualization, and VoIP (three technologies if you throw in unified communications). Companies have been racing to jump on the bandwagon of virtualizing servers to save reduce hardware, power, and cooling expenses, and embracing VoIP to expand the potential of voice communications while cutting costs.

Unfortunately, due to the demands of VoIP and the need for maximum bandwidth and processing power to ensure voice quality, VoIP and virtualization haven’t played nicely together. Organizations could virtualize servers–just not the VoIP server.

Well, the technologies are catching up to each other, and now it is becoming possible to include VoIP in the virtualization project. Check out ‘Enterprises put VoIP virtualization into production’ for more details.
