Parallels and AXIGEN Announce New Integrated Mail Server Solution for SaaS

Offering an Integrated AXIGEN Mail Server and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers Solution for Virtualized Environments

AXIGEN and Parallels announced the launch of a strategic technological partnership, in which the companies will offer an integrated AXIGEN Mail Server and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers solution for Service Providers offering virtualized hosting environments.

The new AXIGEN-Parallels Virtuozzo Containers integration presents a high-end, flexible solution that enables Service Providers the ability to offer customized mail server solutions for customers via a SaaS model. The AXIGEN-Parallels Virtuozzo Containers solution allows Service Providers to offer customers a wide variety of pre-made Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, called templates, which are populated with optimized configurations of the AXIGEN mail server. Customers can choose the template that is right for their business, and have the solution deployed to them with only a few clicks.

This approach enables Service Providers to offer customers a customized AXIGEN mail server solution that meets their customers’ needs, and the SaaS deployment model circumvents the configuration and installation hassles of traditionally deployed software.

“Parallels Virtuozzo Containers’ superior density and manageability, coupled with its ability to rapidly deploy software via pre-configured templates, make it an ideal choice for ISVs to deploy their software via a SaaS model,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels.”The partnership with AXIGEN is an excellent example of a forward-thinking application vendor harnessing the power of SaaS and of Parallels’ continued momentum with Service Providers and SaaS.”

“Given that the AXIGEN Mail server is a service provider oriented solution, we are confident the integrated AXIGEN-Parallels Virtuozzo Containers solution will better address the emerging requirements of this highly competitive environment,” said Oana Bornaz, CEO of AXIGEN. “Moreover, both Parallels and AXIGEN now benefit from an expanded customer base, a fact mutually beneficial to the development of our companies.”

With a carrier class technology and support, AXIGEN is becoming the messaging solution of choice for a growing number of service providers worldwide. Now at version 5.0.2, the AXIGEN Mail Server runs on several Linux and BSD distributions, on Solaris, on PowerPC and on SPARC architectures. AXIGEN has recently won the ServerWatch 2007 Product Excellence Award for the Communications Server category.

Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is a server virtualization technology and solution that lowers management costs by attacking OS sprawl and delivering near native application performance.
