Lync Server 2010: High Performance UC

The independent testing company, Miercom, recently completed performance testing of Microsoft Lync Server 2010.

The tests validated Lync’s overall performance, resiliency, and security. You can check out the report at:

One test that I found interesting was the load test. Miercom generated a load of 13,147 calls per hour for 3 days. Lync didn’t drop a single call, so they decided to let it run another 10 days…  Lync conducted over 4 million calls with 100% success. This is the highest performing UC platform / IP PBX that has ever been tested by Miercom.

Oh, did I mention that the entire UC deployment tested was running on a single Hyper-V host?
