Hybrid deployment, the Zoom way

Zoom’s cloud hybrid strategy has arrived, extending the Zoom cloud to enterprise infrastructure and helping to unify existing and future Zoom hybrid solutions for standardized deployment and operation.

Introducing Zoom Node: a platform designed for hybrid deployment.

Zoom Node is a central hub for hosting workflows — or modules — that support Zoom enterprise functionalities, such as telephony and chat. It’s optimized to help address customer requirements in areas like bandwidth optimization, security, survivability, and compliance. Zoom Node and the modules it supports are managed from the Zoom cloud, effectively extending Zoom cloud functionality to customer data centers.

Zoom Node Modules

Modules are service-specific software that run on Zoom Nodes, providing hybrid services. Each Zoom Node is capable of supporting up to four service modules.

The Hybrid Multimedia Router (HMMR) is the first type of module that’s currently available for Zoom Node enterprise users. The HMMR module allows organizations to host meetings, webinars, and events using data center resources in concert with Zoom’s cloud.

The current HMMR capacity limits are as follows:

 

  • 200 HD video streams per HMMR, 800 per Zoom Node
  • 400 SD video streams per HMMR,1600 per Zoom Node

    Security

    When used in conjunction with a web proxy, Zoom Node has the ability to keep all workstation traffic local inside the network and does not require any direct internet access for the workstations. Zoom Node also reduces the number of data ingress and egress points by keeping media local.

    Customizable capacity

    Zoom Node’s structure allows users to tailor their hybrid strategy according to their organization’s unique needs — adding on nodes and modules as required.

    The current Zoom Node has capacity for up to four modules.
