UCx Virtualized Software

Overview

UCx Release 5.0 adds virtualized software as an option, enabling deployment on a customer-supplied server running VMware vSphere 5+, Hyper-V or KVM operating softwares. Virtualized UCx  software is packaged in OVA or Hyper-V or QCOW2 formats. UCx software can now run inside a virtual machine, on a dedicated server, an appliance, or a combination of these, giving you tremendous flexibility. The ability to virtualize UCx helps customers take full advantage of the benefits of virtualized infrastructure, such as server consolidation, increased security, operational flexibility, and higher applications availability during planned and unplanned downtime in order to achieve cost savings and business continuity objectives.

Image Defaults

The default settings for all Virtual Machine (VMware, Hyper-V, KVM) images are:

  • CPU Execution Threads:  2  (The Minimum of 2 allows access to the system if the main thread stops executing)
  • Memory:  1536 MBytes (1.5GB)
  • HDD:  16GB (This size was chosen to keep the image to a reasonable size)

Deployment

The supported operating environment for deployment are:

Network Requirements

The UCx Server must have the ability to communicate with E-MetroTel public servers using the HTTP protocol. HTTP requests are always initiated by the UCx Server - hence any firewall should be configured to allow the UCx Server to receive responses to such requests.
