“1. Paid Users: Open-Xchange quadrupled the number of
paid users to 8.4 million in 2008, suggesting the company is

“2. Software as a Service: More and more of the deployments
involve solutions providers hosting Open-Xchange for their
customers. In other words, VARs are becoming SaaS centers. And CEO
Laguna de la Vera says Open-Xchange has no plans to host
applications for customers. Translation: The Open-Xchange SaaS
market is designed purely for channel partners.

“Plenty of open source companies are making similar moves.

Amazon.com’s Elastic Compute Cloud. The system is based on
Pentaho’s open source software.”
