Xandros Linux Server to Bundle Scalix 11 Enterprise-Class Collaboration Platform
Xandros, Inc., the leading provider of intuitive end-to-end Linux solutions, and Scalix, the leading Linux email, calendaring and messaging company, today announced that the forthcoming Xandros Server 2 will ship with Scalix 11 pre-installed. The bundled solution brings enterprise-class email and calendaring to the SMB market, providing a broad selection of true enterprise clients such as full feature support of Microsoft Outlook and Evolution, a Web client with desktop functionality, and a Mobile Web Client that allows a broad base of users to stay connected while mobile. A special Xandros plug-in provides full, remote graphical management of Scalix 11. Xandros Server with Scalix 11 provides SMBs with a powerful and easy-to-use alternative to Windows-based messaging systems, and will ship in April 2007.
"Scalix 11 ups the ante for enterprise-grade Linux collaboration and provides Xandros Server with a 'killer' alternative to Microsoft Exchange," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. “Both Scalix and Xandros have a strong commitment to the end user and a focus on practical bridging solutions of today's mixed Windows/Linux network environments. Together, Xandros Server 2 and Scalix 11 provide a uniquely robust and practical solution both for companies setting up their first collaboration solution, and for those looking to escape their current proprietary lock-in by transitioning to a standards-based open solution."
"The plug-in architecture of Xandros Server makes it incredibly easy to set up and manage the Scalix messaging solution," said Glenn Winokur, Scalix Chief Executive Officer. “We are seeing a tremendous upsurge in interest from companies seeking Linux-based email and group calendaring with a full set of true enterprise clients. The award-winning usability duo of Xandros and Scalix puts an affordable solution within reach of hundreds of thousands of small and mid-size businesses who have little or no prior Linux experience.”
