Virtualisation

 

The virtualisation of server systems has become part of everyday life for IT departments. This trend does not stop even before the fax server. Fax server could not be virtualized so far because of the required ISDN cards. Another problem of virtualization are the timings during the fax transmission. Fax servers and fax machines are very sensitive to disturbances or variations in the runtime behavior of the Übetragung which inevitably leads to discontinuation.

Our first choice is still where it is possible to operate the fax server on one physical server. To respond to the trend, however, we have a solution for ActFax dependent on the utilization of your virtual platform provides a stable faxing evaluated.

If you are looking for a fax solution, we recommend you to use ActFax virtualized together with the products of the company LanCom. ActFax was also tested and evaluated by LanCom as suitable.
