8x8 Launches Video MeetingsPro

8x8, a cloud communications platform provider, has launched 8x8 Video MeetingsPro, powered by Jitsi, an open source community for secure video meetings technology, and running on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

"Secure video meetings are a critical part of the day-to-day work of everyone around the world," stated Vik Verma, CEO of 8x8, in a statement. "Our Video Meetings, powered by Jitsi open-source technology, are designed from the ground up with security and privacy in mind to give peace of mind so public and private organizations of every size can confidently use them to conduct confidential business meetings. This is true for all of our video meeting products, both paid and free. We collaborated with Oracle to further enhance our strong product and technology platform with Oracle Cloud's top-tier security, performance, and affordability. We are looking forward to further scaling our global reach with the Oracle go-to-market team."

Priced at $9.99 per user per month after a 30-day free trial, 8x8 Video MeetingsPro includes password-protected and randomly named meetings, real-time closed-captioning with post-call transcription, 60 days of cloud storage for meetings recordings, and the ability to easily secure authorized attendees through dial out features.

8x8 Video Meetings is also packaged with 8x8 X Series, meeting the needs of businesses with mobile and remote workforces by providing a solution across desktop and mobile devices for voice, video conferencing, chat, contact center, APIs, and advanced analytics built on an open cloud technology platform. It is also offered with 8x8 Express for small organizations that require a complete, preconfigured business phone system with a dedicated business number, video meetings, and messaging in a single desktop and mobile application.

8x8 video meetings solutions will also be available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.

"Oracle Cloud delivers tremendous price performance for resource-intensive applications like video meetings. As the world redefines working from home, video meetings are one of our fastest-growing workloads, and we are excited to have 8x8 and the Jitsi open-source community on our cloud infrastructure platform," said Vinay Kumar, vice president of product management at Oracle, in a statement.
