Avaya launches containerised UCaaS solution with Kubernetes

30 May 2019

Avaya has released its new cloud-native, Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) solution running on Google Cloud Platform to help customers more fully leverage the flexibility, efficiency and scalability of cloud.

Initially available in 24 markets, this new offer enables Avaya partners to more effectively transition SMBs to cloud-based communications. 

It provides a customisable, just-in-time cloud communications infrastructure that allows partners to achieve significant cost-reduction with the capability to provision services for their customers at cloud speed.

Building on its strategic integration with Google Cloud, this is the deployment platform for Powered by Avaya IX, providing cost benefits through this highly resilient and scalable solution. 

Avaya has also adopted Kubernetes to empower Avaya solutions with microservices and containerisation, taking a true cloud foundation design approach in their solution offerings. This advances multiple cloud deployment options for businesses, delivering the benefits of cloud solutions while avoiding the one-size-fits-all limitation offered by other providers.

“Powered by Avaya IX now gives SMBs an attractive cloud communications option with many of the capabilities, features and benefits previously associated with larger enterprise offerings,” says Avaya solutions and strategy senior vice president Chris McGugan.

“This new offer is branded by our partners and accelerates the opportunities for the global network of Avaya authorised partners to expand the market with a robust, secure and reliable communications platform. Partners can leverage Avaya’s communication offer deployed in the Google Cloud without the need to invest in and support their own infrastructure, providing an attractive option over competing cloud offers.”

Avaya currently has approximately 3.7 million cloud seats between its public and private offerings and continues to experience significant growth in new cloud customers.
