Microsoft Mediaroom fewer servers

June 1, 2009

Microsoft has launched Microsoft Mediaroom with virtualisation, making Mediaroom the first IPTV platform to offer virtualisation support. Mediaroom with virtualisation can deliver up to a sixfold reduction in the number of physical servers required to support a full-featured IPTV service, significantly reducing hardware and management costs and speeding time to market for Mediaroom customers by up to three weeks.

Mediaroom with virtualisation is designed to provide a cost-effective yet full-featured IPTV platform for smaller operators, for operators launching new services as they scale their subscriber base, and for operators who want to extend an existing service into new markets to serve lower-density communities.
