Cloud Computing Platform
Calabrio uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure as our cloud computing services for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through global network data centers provided by Microsoft or Amazon and managed by the Calabrio ONE Cloud Ops team.
Calabrio has run on Microsoft Azure since 2010 and AWS since 2016. We continuously improve and take advantage of the new innovations from both providers.
Calabrio follows an agile software deployment process that enables us to quickly define requirements, develop new features and solutions, and seamlessly deploy frequent software updates. Calabrio has several cross-functional agile teams across all areas of the Calabrio ONE Suite that includes teams that specialize in Identity and Access Management, Cloud Ops, WFM, Integrations, and more.
Calabrio’s Software Development Life Cycle includes:
- Detection, and remediation of software vulnerabilities on each release
- Use of industry standard tools for managing open-source license compliance
- Annual security training for developers
Calabrio uses a host of security measures to ensure your information is safe in the Cloud. Calabrio ONE automatically encrypts all your data—while it is in use, in transit, and in storage. Calabrio’s multi- tenanted architecture means only our customers have access to their data and no one else. Furthermore, Calabrio ONE has a slew of features that can further increase the security of your data such as,
- Double encryption is used in securing data at rest and in transit with keys unique to each customer
- TLS 1.2 or higher
- RSA-2048 (with asymmetric keys) encryption method that secures data at rest and in transit in AWS
- Transparent Database Encryption (TDE) in Azure
- SSO authentication options
- Role-based access controls (RBAC) supported through configurable permission and view settings

Annually, Calabrio conducts a series of audits using third party assessors. These audits include an examination of our Business Continuity capability. Calabrio’s Business Continuity plans are updated annually by the Calabrio Management team. The plans are subject to testing on an annual basis. Calabrio maintains documentation detailing critical roles and employee call lists.
Database backups are an essential part of Calabrio’s business continuity and disaster recovery strategy, and data protection techniques are employed to protect against incidental loss and ransomware threats.
AWS and Microsoft Azure SQL Databases are continuously backed up. Microsoft Azure SQL Databases allow for a point-in-time restore for up to 7 days back in time and thereafter weekly backups are available for up to 5 weeks.
Moreover, Calabrio leverages High Availability infrastructure to ensure uptime of the service:
- Geographically diverse infrastructure in multiple availability zones with load balancing and redundancies in place to mitigate disasters affecting a datacenter

Calabrio ONE allows you to manage retention periods for WFM data, configure storage profiles, and set up external storage locations outside of Calabrio ONE. The Storage Profiles feature allows you to choose which storage location Calabrio ONE uses to store a team’s audio and screen recordings and Analytics data, based on the age of the recording and data files. Overall, Calabrio offers pricing simplicity, bursting for cost-efficient agility, and flexible storage options.
To learn more about data retention and storage see “WFM Data Retention Policy” and “Configure Storage” in the Calabrio ONE Cloud User Guide.
Calabrio ONE is accessed over the internet, using modern versions of Chrome, Edge, or Firefox web browsers and remote desktops. Every user needs a unique email address that becomes their username. See the Calabrio ONE Product Compatibility Matrix for the full list of compatible web browsers and remote desktop software.
Generally, only port 443 to our web services needs to be open to connect to Calabrio ONE. Exact port requirements vary depending on your ACD. See “Port Usage” in the Calabrio ONE Cloud Installation Guide for port requirements specific to your ACD.
Generated audio media data that is uploaded to Calabrio for processing and storage requires network bandwidth availability. To ensure no interruption to uploads, voice communications, or any other customer applications, it is highly recommended that you calculate your estimated daily amount of data to upload based on the formulas below and understand how this will impact your network.
Recording Time (Daily Recorded Minutes)
(# of users) × (# of calls per user per day) × (avg call length (minutes))
Daily Audio Data Upload
The daily size of audio recording data to upload is calculated from your daily recording audio minutes:0.46 MB × recording time daily recorded minutes
Note that if you are using one of our CCaaS partners (and are not recording call audio in your own premises) there will be no requirement for any audio upload. We transfer audio data directly from cloud to cloud for these platforms.
Daily Screen Data Upload
The daily size of screen recording data to upload is also calculated from your daily recorded minutes:
number of screens per agent × 1.5 MB × recording time daily recorded minutes
Note that you may want to extend your daily recorded minutes to account for an extra thirty seconds of after call work recording of the screen.
Calabrio ONE supports and integrates with many other technologies. For the latest list of supported product compatibility information, check out the Calabrio ONE Supported Product Compatibility List on the User Documentation page of the Calabrio ONE Success Center. The list contains the latest information on operating systems, desktop web browsers, smart device browsers, server operating systems, VMware, thin client servers (remote desktop), and more.
Usage of Calabrio ONE is measured by licenses that grant you legal access. Subscription billing and burst licensing are the two licensing models used for Calabrio ONE-hosted Cloud deployments. When you purchase a subscription to Calabrio ONE, you agree to what Calabrio calls a “minimum monthly commitment”: a minimum number of seats bought at a particular price. If you use more seats than you agree to in your monthly commitment, Calabrio bills you for each of them. These are called “non-committed user fees.” Calabrio bills you periodically: either monthly, quarterly, or annually.
NOTE – The license model may vary depending on your purchased Calabrio ONE products.
See “About Licenses” in the Calabrio ONE User Guide to learn more.
Calabrio works with a variety of platform, reseller, developer, and services partners to create best-in-class contact center technology solutions. Calabrio customers ultimately benefit from our highly successful strategic partnerships.
