"And More Than 1,000 Instant Messaging Servers Deployed."

"Jabber, the only open source, extensible instant messaging platform, today surpassed 10,000 server downloads with more than 1,000 of these servers now actively deployed on the Internet. This marks a 100 percent increase in the number of downloaded servers in the last two months and an increase of more than ten times the number of servers in active deployment in the same period."

"Until now, companies in the instant messaging industry have measured success by the number of consumers using simple and free instant messaging services delivered via a centralized server," said Andre Durand, founder and general manager of Jabber.com, Inc. "With Jabber, a different metric becomes important- installed servers, where any one server may potentially serve hundreds of thousands of end users. This signals the beginning of a new generation of IM as a more strategic and embedded platform for real-time communications."
