White Paper: Virtualizing Video Conferencing for Business
New white paper from Nefsis highlights the
advantages of virtualized conference servers for scalability, high
availability and lower cost of ownership
SAN DIEGO — March 9, 2011 — Online video conferencing
services innovator Nefsis® today published a white paper entitled
“Virtualizing Video Conferencing for Business,”
highlighting the fundamental advantages of cloud computing versus
standalone, installed-site video conferencing solutions.
Video conferencing usually falls under the management of
corporate information technology (IT) departments, but traditional
video conferencing products do not look, behave or act like most IT
assets. They are dedicated, single-function devices with no
provision for scalability or high availability.
In addition, the cloud-based approach dramatically simplifies
activation and maintenance of a secure, company-wide video
conferencing application. There are no infrastructure hardware
components that are difficult to expand.
“Nefsis cloud computing complements or replaces aging video
routers and multichannel units with easy to activate and maintain
online services. Expanding a pure hardware-based multi-office video
conferencing system often requires more video routers, quickly
becoming a major project for IT. With cloud computing it’s a license
expansion and plugging in a few more peripherals, that’s it,” said
Allen Drennan, Nefsis Chief Technology Officer. “Additionally,
IT managers need not concern themselves with owning,
maintaining and upgrading any particular piece of infrastructure
hardware, resulting in a lower cost of ownership”.
