"1. Paid Users: Open-Xchange quadrupled the number of paid users to 8.4 million in 2008, suggesting the company is rapidly approaching 10 million paid users

"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. Earlier this week, The VAR Guy described how OpenBI -- an IT consulting firm -- built a business intelligence system in Amazon.com's Elastic Compute Cloud. The system is based on Pentaho’s open source software."
