Hybrid Cloud Unified Communications Solutions Offer Easy Migration Path for Users

Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division has today announced a convenient migration path to enable its installed base of users to move to the cloud, via Toshiba's Hybrid Cloud Solutions.

Available from authorised Toshiba dealers across the US, Toshiba's cloud migration path will allow users of Toshiba's IPedge and Strata CIX on-premise systems to add the VIPedge cloud-based telephony solution to single or multiple locations.

Dixie Plywood and Lumber Company, a long-standing Toshiba customer, reportedly added Toshiba's VIPedge cloud-based business telephone solution recently to its IPedge on-premises business telephone systems, for a Hybrid Cloud Networking solution.

Bobby Awtrey, Corporate Director of IT Services of Dixie Plywood and Lumber Company commented, "With Toshiba's Hybrid Cloud Solution, our employees can communicate using a variety of devices, including their own mobile phones and tablets."

Toshiba's Hybrid Cloud Networking solution will enable users of Toshiba's on-site IPedge and Strata CIX and cloud-based VIPedge business telephone solutions to network their systems together, for a fully integrated communications solution.

Networking on-premise and cloud systems will provide users with a holistic hybrid business communication solution, which will help users expand features and reduce costs, while utilising the deployment platforms best suited to allow them to achieve their goals.

Some of the other core benefits of Hybrid Cloud Networking will include cost reductions, enhanced communication and calling features, federation across systems, seamless upgrading capabilities, and much more.

"Toshiba offers a smooth pathway to the cloud for its millions of installed users with IPedge and Strata CIX premise-based business telephone systems," explained Brian Metherell, Vice President and General Manager of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "Toshiba users can easily and affordably migrate to a hybrid cloud solution by networking Toshiba's VIPedge cloud-based Unified Communications solution with their existing systems."
