During this session Mitel's Stephen Beamish, vice president of marketing and business development, will interview Parag Patel on his views on the business benefits of virtualization. They will discuss why over 97 percent of the Fortune 1000 businesses have virtualized with VMware solutions today and why so many will look to virtualize their voice applications.
Virtualization as a concept is not new however; in 2009 it has propelled itself to front-of-mind for organizations of all sizes looking to streamline data center costs while simplifying network deployment. With a majority of IT budgets typically dedicated to infrastructure upkeep, businesses need a way to focus on innovation rather then network plumbing.
The one area key to businesses that has not had the opportunity to benefit from virtualization is voice. Until recently vendors have not been able to overcome the technological complexity of virtualizing real-time voice applications. Today VMware, the leader in virtualization, with over 130,000 customers (including 100 percent of the Fortune 100) and Mitel®, the leader in voice virtualization, have solved the challenge. Together the companies have collaborated to allow unified communications applications to run in a virtualized environment (http://www.mitel.com/DocController?documentId=33469).
