Open-Xchange offers Microsoft Exchange/Windows Server alternative

Open-Xchange is making it easier for users to adopt an open-source alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Windows Server platforms, by launching a new extension to its Open-Xchange Server 5 in March.

The Samba OXtender enables end-users to access all the information they need for their daily work on one machine with a single graphical user interface.

Samba OXtender provides integration to printers and access to all files through the Open-Xchange Server user interface.

Open-Xchange Server 5 supports e-mail, calendaring, contacts and task management, fully integrated with document sharing, project tracking and a knowledge base.

Open-Xchange Server 5 works with “rich clients” such as the Microsoft Outlook e-mail platform, as well as most browsers and mobile devices.

"With Samba OXtender, customers can leverage their Open-Xchange Server investments in the next generation workplace," said Frank Hoberg, chief executive of Open-Xchange. "In addition to Microsoft Exchange, they can consider moving away from Microsoft Windows Server as well."

Samba OXtender will be available in mid-March through the Open-Xchange online shop and in the channel. Samba OXtender for one server and 25 named users will be £150. Additional named users will cost £3.
