Avaya launches virtualised unified communications offering for SMBs

New platform is designed to run on a single server

By CBR Staff Writer

Avaya has launched Avaya Aura, a single-server, unified communications offering for businesses as small as 100 employees and scalable up to 2400 users and 250 locations.

According to Avaya, the new Aura midsize offering for enterprises uses virtualisation technology for real-time communications, that enables unmodified versions of Avaya Communication Manager, Voice Messaging, SIP Enablement Services, Application Enablement Services, Utility Services and Media Services to be deployed on a single server.

The new offering uses System Platform with standard, commercial servers certified by Avaya to deliver the security, scalability and resiliency which businesses need for their mission-critical communications, the company claims.

The company said that the new offering for midsize enterprises benefits include, up to 75% reduction in hardware, power and cooling and maintenance requirements; simplified installation and ongoing management with integrated services for administrators, powerful wizards and self-use administration, enabling the offering to be remotely deployed in 1-2 hours; and high resiliency with built in remote monitoring, and an optional backup server for redundancy.

Alan Baratz, president, Global Communications Systems and senior vice president at Avaya, said: When we launched Avaya Aura in May, it provided a breakthrough solution for large enterprises looking to run their unified communications and contact center systems more efficiently. With the release of Avaya Aura midsize solution for enterprises, we provide the same, high-performing functionality to even more businesses.
