PostPath Announces PostPath Email and Collaboration Server 2.0 Using AJAX Web-Client

Web 2.0 App is Enabled to Work in a Mixed Exchange and Open-Server Configuration

PostPath, creator of the Linux-based PostPath Email and Collaboration Server, announced public availability of the PostPath Server 2.0 – a Exchange alternative that delivers enterprise compatibility at the network protocol level with Microsoft Outlook, Active Directory, already installed Exchange Servers, and other email ecosystem applications such as BlackBerry.

The 2.0 release includes the open source Zimbra AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) web-client adapted for the PostPath Server, enabling Web-2.0-style browser-based access to email, calendaring, contacts, and other functions, independent of the type of web-browser or client platform an individual may be using. Web-access works seamlessly in mixed Exchange and PostPath server environments, allowing, a web-client user to see free-busy calendar information for any co-worker, regardless of whether that co-worker’s data is hosted on a PostPath Server or on Exchange.

“This is the first time a Web 2.0 application has been enabled to work in a mixed Exchange and open-server configuration,” said PostPath CEO Duncan Greatwood. “This is typical of the way PostPath lets customers take advantage of a new generation of efficient, cost-effective tools and capabilities in an open environment, while avoiding disrupting their existing desktops and infrastructure.”

PostPath said its Server 2.0 provides advanced infrastructure capabilities. Specifically, the PostPath Server now supports on and off-site server replication and hot failover using DRBD and Linux HA, two open-source technologies built into Linux. Based on customer request, PostPath Server 2.0 also supports enterprise grade encryption of the PostPath file-based mail store.

“High Availability and encryption are just two areas where PostPath combines open systems with proprietary interoperability to deliver the best of both worlds, allowing IT to move away from lock-in and take full advantage both of their proprietary product investments and also of powerful cost-effective next-generation infrastructure,” concluded Greatwood.
