Microsoft Virtualizes Unified Communications
Microsoft is getting busy on unified communications, announcing that HP will be a larger and even more committed partner and that Redmond's communications wares can now be virtualized.
I thought I knew a bit about virtualization. After all, early last year I launched Virtualization Review magazine. So I just assumed that unified communications software could be virtualized just as nearly any other app. Apparently, I was wrong, and Microsoft put extra effort into ensuring that presence, instant messaging and more can all be hosted on VMs.
If this lowers the costs of unified communications and makes it easier to migrate from a failed VM to a healthy one, I'm all for it.
