Virtualized Video Conferencing Infrastructure in Action

LifeSize is the first video conferencing manufacturer to fully embrace virtualization. Available as hardware or virtualized software, the LifeSize UVC applications are everything you need to video-enable your organization. Key video infrastructure applications such as mobile video calling, multiparty video conferencing, streaming and recording and video network management are all integrated and available on the LifeSize UVC Platform from one common interface. The LifeSize UVC Platform has also achieved VMware Ready status. This designation indicates that, after a detailed validation process, it has achieved VMware’s highest level of endorsement and can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).

Why Virtualization?

Virtual video conferencing infrastructure eliminates the “one server, one application” model and delivers greater efficiencies in how you manage, deploy and scale video infrastructure to fit your needs. While hardware solutions offer a number of conveniences, virtualization presents another set of benefits for the enterprise.

LOWER OPERATING COSTS
Requires less energy, less space and fewer employee hours

FASTER, SIMPLIFIED DEPLOYMENT
Takes just minutes to deploy, with no hardware to install, configure or ship

GREATER FLEXIBILITY AND CONTROL
Easy to manage, move, configure and scale to your needs

ENTERPRISE-CLASS BUSINESS CONTINUITY WITH NEAR-ZERO DOWNTIME
Delivers high availability and disaster recovery via failover and load balancing

How Does Virtualization Work?

Virtualization of video infrastructure is a process whereby a layer of virtualizing software abstracts the systems running on a server. A virtual machine is a tightly isolated software container that can run its own operating system and its own applications, and it is completely independent of the underlying physical hardware.

Through virtualization, you can run multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that server. In addition, a virtual machine can be moved to other existing servers, thus providing added flexibility and control within your network environment.
