Parallels, a provider of virtualisation and automation software, today announced that Swyx Solutions AG has selected Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 to deliver a cost-efficient and scalable hosted PBX application via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.
Using Parallels software, Swyx quickly delivered "Hosted SwyxWare," a hosted solution based on its "SwyxWare" telecommunications system for Microsoft Windows.
Hosted SwyxWare combines locally installed software components and virtual-PBX servers running in Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, which helps businesses save money by replacing or supplementing their conventional PBX solutions, claims the company.
Hosted SwyxWare scales from a single server to a multi-server environment, which can support unlimited customers and be deployed as a pre-built, pre-configured solution. Swyx customers can operate the application the same as before, and can upgrade hardware or expand the base system without re-installation or downtime.
The company avers that on a single physical server and single OS installation, the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers enable users to run workloads in multiple, simultaneously running execution environments called "containers".
Compared to other virtualisation technologies, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers offers the highest levels of density, performance and manageability.
"Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 combined with our automation software provide the ideal platform for companies like Swyx that are looking to capitalize on the SaaS opportunity," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels.
"The Hosted SwyxWare solution is another example of how our SaaS enablement technologies are driving real business results for independent software vendors (ISVs) and their customers."
"Swyx has made its choice in selecting Parallels as a technology partner," said Uwe Sauerbrey, vice president of product planning at Swyx. "Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 offers our customers a next generation telephony solution with Hosted SwyxWare."
