Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.

Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and effciency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational ef?ciency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.
As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services for layers 4 through 7 are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational ef?ciency.

If you’re like most developers, you spend about two-thirds of your time building and the rest of your
time learning. Sometimes your research is proactive, based on personal interest or a desire to maintain
your skills, but more likely it’s out of necessity—learning what you need to tackle your next big project.
Not long ago, new projects assumed an on-premises or hosted approach, forcing you to spend
considerable time on essential requirements like scalability, availability, and security. Today, you still
must deliver on those essentials, but the apps you’re building need to do a lot more: support millions
of users, span the globe, make sense of petabytes of data, and delight users in new ways.
