Open-Xchange, Inc. today announced the availability of a free, fully-functional "Live-CD" of Open-Xchange Server 5 that gives users a cost-free, risk-free way to test all the attributes of the world's leading open source alternative to Microsoft Exchange.

Open-Xchange Server 5 is the leading messaging and collaborative solution based on open source technology. It provides key messaging functions like email, calendaring, contacts and task management, fully integrated with advanced groupware features such as project tracking, document sharing, user forums, and a knowledge base. Open-Xchange Server 5 works with a wide variety of email clients and mobile devices. Because it is built on open platforms and open standards, it is easy to integrate with current IT environments and future technologies.

"With so much hype and confusion in the collaboration market these days, we want to give customers and partners a way to see the experience how straightforward, easy-to-use yet robust Open-Xchange is," said Frank Hoberg, CEO, Open-Xchange Inc. "This is not a polished, pre-run demo, but the real live product that will give everyone who uses it a good idea of what we offer."

Built on KNOPPIX Linux, the Live-CD contains a complete edition of Open-Xchange Server 5 that boots directly from the CD-ROM, ensuring that the host computer is not modified in any way. Any data that is added during use of the CD is not saved and is deleted when the CD is removed.

The Live-CD offers:

  • Testing of almost all user and administrative features
  • Easy start-up with no prior special technical knowledge
  • Outlook OXtender testing

The Live-CD can be downloaded now. Also available is a first look online demo.
