    Presentation Overview:

    Fixing Enterprise Email through Open Source

    Enterprise email is broken. Challenges like overflowing inboxes and the overhead of organizing correspondence, as well as the cost of managing storage, availability, retention, and compliance are conspiring to make corporate email an interminable source of frustration among users and administrators alike. Major changes are being accelerated by companies that leverage Linux and open source communities to deliver innovative new collaboration solutions. This session will highlight what’s in store for enterprise messaging:

    • A demonstration of better messaging and collaboration
    • Commitment to building an open source community
    • Architectural overview including AJAX, search, extensibility, performance, caching, security, fault tolerance, archival and more.
