NEC Helps Customers Build Enterprise Hybrid Clouds

NEC is enabling organizations to directly implement communication-as-a service delivery models as part of their private or hybrid clouds.  The company has announced the immediate availability of UNIVERGE Sphericall as a VMware software-based virtual appliance to this end.

Because UNIVERGE Sphericall is adapted to a VMware software-based virtual appliance, it is an ideal choice for a wide range of communication services, says NEC, a specialist in the integration of IT and network technologies.  The company notes that businesses using a virtualized voice and data infrastructure can provide a cost effective, flexible, and agile method of delivering new applications and services rapidly to market.

Customers can enjoy a range of benefits by using virtual appliances based on VMware vSphere: pooling infrastructure resources, elasticity to meet capacity on demand, and more effective disaster recovery for business continuity.

Following this announcement, Cloud Service providers will also be able to deliver high-availability, scalable communication-as-a-service solutions in the cloud.

Moreover, Unified communications functions can now be deployed alongside other virtualized business applications in businesses’ NEC and VMware software-based private or hybrid cloud.

We believe CIOs are looking to virtualization and cloud strategies to deliver business applications, which may include ERP, CRM and even unified communications, as a service in a very streamlined, efficient manner — all on fewer physical servers than was ever possible before,” said Taichiro Hashizawa, vice president and senior general manager, NEC. “As a pure software-based communications solution based on open standards, Sphericall is suited to fit squarely within virtualization and cloud strategies in a wide variety of configurations.”

VMware and NEC share a common vision for delivering cloud computing solutions to customers,” said Gary Green, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. “NEC’s new communication-as-a-service solution based on VMware vSphere is designed to help customers virtualize additional datacenter resources for building enterprise hybrid clouds.”
