Singlewire Announces Release of InformaCast Virtual Appliance

Singlewire's New InformaCast Virtual Appliance Allows Customers to Easily Deploy InformaCast in Virtualized Server Environments

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Singlewire Software (, developer of innovative voice applications centered around secure, fast, and reliable mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging, today announced the release of Singlewire InformaCast Virtual Appliance for deploying InformaCast in virtualized server environments.

InformaCast Virtual Appliance is an alternative way for deploying InformaCast within an organization. Making use of virtualized server environments, InformaCast Virtual Appliance can be installed by downloading a single file that contains the InformaCast application and an operating system. Engineers simply install and configure the virtual appliance in their virtual environment using standard deployment practices. InformaCast users can then access the application via a secure web portal in the same way they would if InformaCast was deployed on a physical server.

InformaCast Virtual Appliance provides a lower cost of ownership to customers because a traditional Windows server license and maintenance costs are no longer necessary. It also allows users to deploy InformaCast more quickly.

"We've seen a growing number of customers using virtual environments for their unified communications and other IT services," states Jerry Steinhauer (CCIE #12504), Chief Technical Officer at Singlewire Software. "InformaCast Virtual Appliance gives organizations an easy way to deploy InformaCast."

InformaCast Virtual Appliance supports VMware ESX server 4.0 or later. For additional information on requirements and to view a short, three-minute video, visit
