Zentyal: Linux & the Cloud Can Beat Windows Small Business Server

“No doubt, Microsoft Windows Small Business Server
(SBS) has a loyal channel and a massive SMB installed base. But
Zentyal, a Spain-based software company with International
aspirations, is promoting an SBS alternative to VARs and managed
services providers. The twist: Zentyal marries an on-premise Linux
small business server with cloud computing.

“Admittedly: I’ve seen dozens of open source alternatives to
Microsoft SBS come and go over the years. Everyone from Novell to
Xandros has made the Linux small business server pitch, but most
customers and channel partners stuck with Microsoft. And Zentyal
sounds vaguely familiar. In fact, it was previously branded as the
eBox Platform. Zentyal estimates that there are roughly 50,000
active Zentyal server installations worldwide.”
