Web Hosting NewsNUREMBERG, Germany – Open-Xchange announced the availability of Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition as a lower cost alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Sharepoint for educational institutions, public administrations and small- and medium-size businesses.

Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition combines the leading open-source groupware with the Debian-based enterprise Linux Univention Corporate Server. The integrated directory services and web-based graphical administration interface significantly reduces administrative costs — user rights/permissions, groups, and resources can be easily, centrally managed.

“Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition provides organizations from 50 to 5,000 users with an alternative to Microsoft Exchange,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “We’re delivering function that goes beyond the Microsoft Exchange and Sharepoint stacks for lower cost.”

Open-Xchange makes communication easier and teamwork more efficient by providing users with integrated tools for e-mail, calendar, address book, document and task management. Its innovative “Social OX” simplifies the aggregation of e-mail and contact information — personal and business. All data is presented clearly and can be edited quickly using the intuitive AJAX-based web interface. Microsoft Outlook on Windows and the applications Mail, Address Book and iCal on Mac OS X can be used as well. And, with mobility support, Open-Xchange gives users access to their data anywhere, anytime and with virtually any device.

Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition completes the on-premises Open-Xchange offerings and is positioned between single server Open-Xchange Appliance Edition and the customizable Server Edition. Advanced Server Edition includes centralized server management and software monitoring and software distribution — even in different locations. It enables the LDAP directory and Microsoft Active Directory to be used in parallel.
