Can UC apps run over virtual infrastructure? How does that work?
Unified communications (UC) applications, even those that require real-time communications such as voice and video, can now be supported within a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). For small-scale deployments, softphones and other UC applications can be deployed on the application server, but in most VDI deployments, a small application is installed on the thin client that takes the media processing load off of the server.
For more information, see the two-part article on developments in integrating UC apps into VDI environments.
