Virtualization enables multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical computer. VMware is the market leader in virtualization, offering production-proven technology used by more than 170,000 customers, including 100 percent of the Fortune 100.
In a partnership made in data-center heaven, Mitel® and VMware® have cracked the final frontier of voice telephony: virtualization. It took the combined forces of Mitel, a company in a voice telephony league of its own, and VMware, the leader in virtualization, to solve a previously unmanageable problem. The partnership attacked the chasm between voice telephony and virtualized software, and succeeded. Now, mission-critical voice applications have been virtualized alongside other enterprise business applications in the mainstream data center.
CIOs can now treat voice like any other business application in the data center. With the voice virtualization chasm spanned and the Mitel and VMware bridge up and functioning, CIOs are crossing over to a data center in which virtualized, unified communications helps enterprises respond to today’s market challenges.
