Singlewire Software, a developer of voice applications used for mass notification (e.g. emergency communication) has released a virtual appliance for deploying the company’s InformaCast product in virtual server environments.
“We’ve seen a growing number of customers using virtual environments for their unified communications and other IT services,” states Jerry Steinhauer (CCIE #12504), Chief Technical Officer at Singlewire Software. “InformaCast Virtual Appliance gives organizations an easy way to deploy InformaCast.”
Making use of virtualized server environments continues to be popular among the IT set as operational costs are typically much lower and there are fewer ongoing maintenance tasks. Installation is also quite a bit easier.
The InformaCast Virtual Appliance can be installed by downloading a single file containing the application and an operating system. Engineers install and configure the virtual appliance in their virtual environment and InformaCast users can then access the application via a secure web portal in the same way they would if InformaCast were deployed on a physical server.
