BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Avaya, a global leader in business communications and collaboration, today announced that it will showcase four cloud solutions at Oracle OpenWorld 2011, the world’s premier learning event for Oracle customers, developers and partners.
At the event, Avaya will demonstrate how it can deliver always-on, real-time cloud solutions that are scalable, reliable and easy to deploy and manage. The solutions will feature a suite of Avaya virtualized applications running on Oracle servers and being supported by the Avaya Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture (VENA). Avaya VENA is a standards-based enterprise-wide virtualization architecture that simplifies the network, streamlines the deployment of cloud-based services and improves the delivery of always-on content.
Live demonstrations at Oracle OpenWorld will include:
- Unified communications as a cloud-based service. Avaya will showcase an open, virtualized Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) solution that unifies and simplifies communications through features such as presence, personal call attendant, find me / follow me, unified messaging, and HD video conferencing. A mobile client with multi-party click-to-call conferencing, office caller ID, visual contacts, instant messaging and presence will also be demonstrated.
- WLAN as a cloud-based service. Avaya will demonstrate how its unique ‘split-plane’ architecture enables the seamless scaling of wireless traffic without the cost and complexity of an overlay network. It enables the wireless control plane to become a virtual machine (VM) in the cloud, managing access points and switches in the enterprise while integrating all wireless application traffic (data plane) into the existing campus Ethernet network. This allows enterprises to be well positioned for the explosive growth of high bandwidth wireless applications.
- vMotion over Avaya VENA using Virtualization Provisioning Service (VPS). Avaya will move a unified communications virtual machine from one physical Oracle server to another without impacting the end user experience. The appropriate port profile (QoS, ACL) and VLAN are applied to the edge port of the new server before the VM move is completed, ensuring the transition from server to server is seamless.
- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Oracle’s thin client will be on display, accessing management applications in a virtualized data center in real-time to perform VM moves and other administrative tasks.
Come visit Avaya at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 – from October 2-6, 2011 – in the Game Zone, located in Moscone South.
