Future of Unity?

Hi All,

I have upgraded to CM 6.1 and CER 2.2 and I have to say going back and working on Unity 4.2 feels like working on Windows 95. It isn't that Windows is an issue but the newer versions of CM and CER just works so much better in our environment. I have integrated LDAP(Novell Shop) and it has made things just fit. The web interfaces also look a whole heck of a lot better.

Once Cisco and ATT work out our smartnet contracts I plan on updating to the latest Unity. So the question is, will Unity be moving to Linux and similar functionality in regards to integration with LDAP, better user interface etc.? Is there a road map out there that I can check out to see what we are looking at?

Re: Future of Unity?

Unity Connection is already based on the Linux platform and, in fact, shares a large part of the core of Call Manager's system code (the interfaces are shared and you can install Call Manager and Unity Connection on the same server in "co-res" mode).

So the short answer to your question is Unity will remain on Windows since it must integrate with Exchange for UM and Connection is the Linux based VM only solution.
