Open-Xchange on Univention Corporate Server

Oct 23, 2008

Groupware vendor Open-Xchange and Linux distributor Univention have exhibited a product based on their cooperative effort at the SYSTEMS 2008 trade fair in Munich: the combined Open-Xchange and Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 2.1.

The groupware server and operating system team-up was given the name Open-Xchange Appliance Edition. It replaces the previous Open-Xchange Express Edition that the groupware vendor developed for the now aging Ubuntu Linux 6.0.6. Both products deliver to customers a Linux OS with a pre-installed groupware server.

As a further benefit, the Univention server platform integrates with Microsoft's Active Directory, a wish fulfilled for many Open-Xchange customers.

A pre-version of the software should be downloadable within days.

The complete Open-Xchange Appliance Edition is announced for a November 5 release. Subscription including updates in the first year for 10 users might cost just short of $700, with a follow-up next year at around $170. Additional support plans are also offered.
