Robust, high availability solution designed for enterprise.
Scalix Enterprise Edition is a robust messaging solution that supports multiple servers and meets the demanding needs of enterprises. It scales for even the largest organizations. It is based on our Collaboration Platform, which serves as the foundation for all our product editions. In addition to the Scalix Collaboration Platform components and features, Enterprise Edition provides the following incremental capabilities:
Transparent multi-server support.
Enterprise Edition gives you the ability to span one or more domains across multiple servers. With multi-server support, delegate access and folder sharing work transparently across servers, as if users were on the same server. The global address book is fully synchronized across your organization. You can centrally administer all your Scalix Mail Servers from a single Management Console. Public folder data is replicated across servers, thus each server maintains its own copy of the data for fast access by local users.
Enterprise Edition allows multiple independent instances of the Scalix product to co-exist on a single server, each with its own user set, domain name, and message store. For all intents and purposes, each instance is its own mail server. Multi-instance support is beneficial if you are part of a central group that manages IT for legally separate entities.
While you never expect a component failure, with mission critical applications, you know you have to be fully prepared for every possibility. Power supplies can fail, memory chips can go bad, or any number of other issues can take a server off-line. Scalix Enterprise Edition supports high availability so your operations continue to run smoothly even if a server fails. It supports various high availability topologies including active-passive and active-active configurations. With support of clustering and failover, you get a seamless transition any time you need it. In addition, this gives you the freedom to take any server off-line for maintenance/upgrades when necessary – with no system downtime. Enterprise Edition also supports basic load-balancing when used with round robin DNS.
Network-independent wireless solution.
An optional 3rd party wireless solution that supports all leading devices is available for Premium Users of Enterprise Edition. The wireless solution, NotifyLink Enterprise Mobility Solution for Scalix, is offered by Notify Technology Corporation. NotifyLink provides wireless access to all Scalix mailbox email and PIM (calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes) across a broad choice of wireless network technologies and wireless devices including Palm OS and Windows Mobile devices and Blackberries. For more information and a list of supported wireless devices, visit our NotifyLink page.
TNEF support for transparent Exchange co-existence.
Enterprise Edition offers full interoperability with proprietary Microsoft Exchange environments, using TNEF for transparent server-to-server co-existence. This gives you the option of maintaining a mixed environment or migrating over an extended period. With Enterprise Edition, “what you see is what they sent.” You get full message and calendaring fidelity and reply-ability for all Outlook groupware features such shared task reminders. When you receive a meeting request from an Exchange user, for example, it looks and acts like your other meeting requests.
Instant, user-specific recovery of deleted items.
Mail administrators live in fear of the phone call from an executive who has accidentally deleted an important presentation needed for a meeting that is about to begin. If it hasn’t happened to you already, you know some day it will. Scalix Enterprise Edition solves this problem with the Recovery Folder feature. The Recovery Folder provides a means for Premium Users to rapidly recover deleted items on a user-specific basis. The Recovery Folder retains emails removed from the user’s Deleted Items folder. The Recovery Folder itself is hidden from the user’s view, but when needed you simply make it visible to the user with a click. The user then sees their Recovery Folder as they do any other mailbox folder and can retrieve their lost item. You can enable the feature and determine the retention period for Recover Folder contents on a user-specific basis. It works for all Enterprise Edition Premium Users, on any client.
Active Directory Extensions
Scalix Mail Server integrates with any LDAP-based directory such as Microsoft Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, RedHat/Fedora Directory Server, OpenLDAP and others. This gives you choice, flexibility, and investment protection. In addition, Enterprise Edition provides Active Directory extensions so Scalix-specific object classes and attributes can be created within Active Directory. With Active Directory Extensions, two new Scalix-specific tabs appear in the Active Directory Users and Computers interface (ADUC), and you can manage all Scalix users and groups using the easy and familiar ADUC interface and wizards.
The optional Scalix Migration Tool lets you easily migrate user data from Exchange to Enterprise Edition Premium User mailboxes. No changes to your corporate directory or network topology are required. The automated tool reliably migrates all mailboxes, messages, public folders, calendars, and directory data from your existing mail system. The migration process ensures full mailbox and message fidelity and message reply-ability. And since Enterprise Edition provides transparent server-to-server co-existence with Exchange, you can choose to maintain a mixed environment or migrate on any schedule you choose.
Scalix Enterprise Edition is priced by number of Premium Users. As with all Scalix product editions, Standard Users are free and any number can be provisioned. To learn the difference between Premium Users and Standard Users, visit our user types page. To see pricing details, visit our pricing page.
