Open-Xchange Server – software stack

Open-Xchange Server is an open source collaboration software stack that features an integrated Web2.0 E-Mail user interface, calendar, contact, and task management functions. It also offers basic document management and sharing.

Open-Xchange Server supports free standards and proprietary environments like Apple iSync and Microsoft Outlook via commercial extensions. Innovative connectors, called “OXtenders”, enhance customer flexibility by using open standard APIs to integrate existing IT infrastructures or extend capabilities to mobile devices, fax servers, back-up utilities, email archiving tools, and Samba administration tools.

The latest Open-Xchange Server beta versions provide social networking capabilities, enabling automated publish and subscribe capabilities between instances of Open-Xchange Server and social networking sites like linkedin, facebook, and various Google services. The service runs on the #Backend, i.e. on the server, so that data connections stay active even if a user goes off line.
