Do I really need a MCS server for Unity?

Answered Question

We are planning a VoIP deployment. Can I install Unity on any Windows server that meets hardware requirements? Why should I purchase an MCS system with Unity rather than, lets say, and Dell server?

One of the things I like about having it on a Windows box is that I can back it up with Backup Exec and restore it to another server in the event of a disaster.

I have this problem too.

I run on my own HP platform, the only con that I see is that you need to provide your own windows CD and you will not get the Cisco Unity Platform CDs from Cisco.

It takes a little longer to install. But the servers cost less.

MCS servers are just HP and IBM servers that are branded Cisco anyway.

Hope this helps.
