Sachsen DV addresses the specific needs of large enterprise customers with redundant infrastructure components, dedicated and high-availability server architecture, as well as 24/7 support. The company provides a high performance infrastructure and services that include monitoring, systems management, as well as support offerings for Open-Xchange.

“For our enterprise customers, e-mail and groupware are mission-critical applications that need to be up 24/7,” said Herbert Roller Brandão, managing director of Sachsen DV. “With the introduction of Open-Xchange, we are offering our customers a cost-effective communication infrastructure that meets the highest standards of availability, security and privacy – that, at the same time, integrates with other applications.”

Sachsen DV specializes in development, operation and management of security-critical IT applications. The company operates a TÜViT-certified data center in Leipzig, Germany, which is in accordance with banking standards. Sachsen DV operates IT systems of banks, financial service providers and mid-sized companies.

“Many medium and large companies still run e-mail servers within their own company, even though economic arguments recommend to source them to a service provider,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “With Sachsen DV, we can point discerning customers with the need for individual and security-certified services to an experienced hosting specialist.”

Open-Xchange is used by more than 15 million users worldwide as hosted and on-premises business-class e-mail and groupware – an increase of 80 percent in 2009. Open-Xchange Hosting Edition is the only groupware specifically designed to meet the needs of SaaS providers. With over 15 million users, Open-Xchange is now the world’s leading technology supplier of groupware for web-hosting companies, ISPs, telecommunication companies and IT service companies. SaaS partners include 1&1 Internet – the #1 hosting company worldwide, Network Solutions – the #3 hosting company in the U.S., Versatel (Germany), Dotster (U.
