- Avaya Aura® Appliance Model
Avaya Aura® can always be purchased as a turnkey solution on Avaya Common Server platforms. Avaya provides individual server models, optimized for each application, for enterprises preferring that Avaya provide the server hardware for their solutions. However, Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment meets the scale, performance, and reliability standards of the Avaya Aura appliance model in a virtualized solution. Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment combines the reliability and robust features of Avaya Aura with the diagnostics capabilities of VMware vCenter.
- Avaya Collaboration Pod
The Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment can also be deployed as an Avaya Collaboration Pod, where we combine a best-of-breed server, storage, virtualization, and networking components in an easy-to-order, easy-to-deploy, and ready-to-operate package. The Collaboration Pod for Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment includes installed VMware operating software, VMware licenses, and a unified communications platform pre-tested by Avaya.
For existing Avaya customers, Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment offers an efficient, simplified path to migrate to the latest Avaya Aura release. For any enterprise, Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment offers an efficient implementation and full Unified Communications solution.
