Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment

Avaya Aura® Virtualized Environment offers an alternative to running Avaya Aura core applications on dedicated servers. Avaya Aura applications are approved by VMware as ready for integration into any VMware compatible network.
Avaya Aura applications are supported on VMware as virtual appliances. Our downloadable, VMware-compatible OVA files let enterprises integrate full-capability Avaya Aura applications on their own hardware and VMware operating systems. Choose server-based applications, virtual appliances, or a combination of solutions:
 
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.
