Collax FlexibleIT_LogoThe IT infrastructure for SMEs

Collax Business Server is an all-in-one IT solution which provides all the communication, storage and security services an SME (Small to Medium Enterprise) may require.

It's a perfect alternative to Microsoft Small Business Server which will reduce by at least 50% your purchasing and maintenance costs while it provides more service and requires, thanks to its efficiency, servers with much lower specifications.

Collax Business Server can also replace a good number of devices like firewalls, faxes, storage servers and domain controllers so you'll be able to simplify your IT infrastructure, reduce your support and licensing costs while cutting also you electricity bill as you'll need only one low power server to perform all the tasks that where managed by different devices.

It can also be an excellent complement to existing IT set-ups as, being able to connect to Microsoft Active Directory, it can offload your main Windows server of some services maintaining a single authentication solution.

System administrators will find it very easy to manage a Collax Business Server as its comprehensive but easy to use web management interface provide total control over the server's features.  For easy and quick recovery, in case of hardware failure, all the configuration and data backup tools are included.

Zarafa Communication Platform integration

Zarafa Communication Platform integration

From a user point of view nothing changes, apart from the increase in services and responsiveness, and it can be used in mixed Windows, OS X e Linux environments.

E-mail, Fax, Instant Messaging, remote access and document sharing are just some of the services available to all authorised users.

To secure Internet access is possible to activate the built in web filtering features so that access will be restricted and filtered depending on the configured security levels based on user groups.


Collax Business Server, together with the Kopano Collaboration Platform add-on, can be seen as an enhanced version of Microsoft Small Business Server as it includes all the services you already know of MS SBS but it adds on top all the security and communication features which would otherwise require additional equipments and licenses.

  • Email archival (with legal value)*
  • Zarafa Collaboration Platform*

Collax Security Gateway integrates all the enterprise level security tools in a solutions that is at the same time powerful but also easy to use.

The general definition of UTM (Unified Threat Management) appliance, used by many manufacturers, could probably be quite restrictive if applied to the Collax Security Gateway as it doesn't simply guarantees high levels of security but it provides integration features that go well beyond your expectations.

Security through simplification

Numerous studies made on businesses network security demonstrates that the vast majority of vulnerabilities found are due to 2 main issues:

  • some firewalls allow, by default, all the traffic from the internal network to go without checks to the Internet so viruses and trojans can operate freely
  • most UTMs are so complex to manage that it's never clear what type of traffic is allowed on the various connections so network operators sooner or later will get some configuration seriously wrong

With Collax Security Gateway you have a clear view of all the network rules applied to your firewall and the traffic that is being routed through your networks so you won't risk to lose control of your security policies.

Collax FlexibleITVirtualisation, High Availability & Clustering

 Whether you look to consolidate your IT infrastructure or to reduce your single server downtime, in case of hardware failure, server virtualisation is generally a very good option.

Brands like VMWare, Xen and RedHat are quite good in providing solutions for medium to large companies with the large budgets required to cover licensing, infrastructure and highly specialised consultancy costs so SMEs are, often, not even considering server virtualisation as they expect costs to be well above their expenditure targets.

Collax, with its V-Cube virtualisation platform and its add-on modules, put within SMEs' reach those solutions by not only reducing the costs but also by increasing their efficiency and simplifying their management.

Collax V-Cube can by used as a single server virtualisation platform to host your Linux and Windows servers or, with the Inter-V module, as a complete clustered solution.

Adding the V-Store modules, configured on 2 servers, your company will be able to keep working even if one of the servers develops a fault as all your virtual servers will move automatically on the other server. During normal operation the servers will share the load increasing the lifespan of your physical IT infrastructure.

  • SANless configuration
  • VMs running from local storage
  • Reduces infrastructure costs
  • Increases VMs performances
  • Real time data replication between nodes
  • Fast live migration between nodes
  • Storage on Cluster File System (OCFS2)

Collax FlexibleITCollax V-SAN - SANless high availability

V-Store embedded SANMost highly available (HA) configurations require separate shared storage units that allows to restart the virtual machines on the other node. Those units, called SAN (Storage Area Network) are connected with Fiber Channel or InfiniBand links and can be very complex to manage and expensive putting them out of reach of small and medium size company's budgets.

The Embedded SAN solution provided by the Collax V-SAN module eliminates complexity, reduces costs and increases the performances making it an excellent solution for small companies or departmental requirements.

With Collax V-SAN creates a shared virtual storage using the local drives, which is seen by both servers as a single large disk, so you can install an run your Windows or Linux virtual machines on each server.

Collax Highly Available Configuration

With near to zero loss of performances, V-SAN, replicates in real time every bit written on the Embedded SAN so even it the event of a server failure the other node will restart the VMs with no loss of data.

Collax Highly Available Configuration FailOver

pdf competitive analisys between Collax V-Cube, VMWare VSphere 5.0 and Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 (665 KB) allows you to verify that, Collax V-Cube with its modules, will satisfy your requirements reducing costs and increasing the availability of your business critical applications.

This kind of configuration, with 2 active servers or low power appliances, with VMWare could cost you easily £20000 while with Collax and including hardware you'll need to invest only a quarter of that.

General features:

  • Installation can be done in few clicks
  • Centralised web management
  • No need for dedicated control node
  • Live migration delle macchine virtuali tra i nodi
  • It doesn't not require external SAN storage units
  • Increased data throughput (10+GBit/s)
  • Supports Oracle Cluster File System (OCFS2)
  • Real time data replication
  • Automatic failover
  • Integrated Backup, Restore and V-Recovery feature
  • Includes P2V and V2P (Physical to Virtual e Virtual to Physical) migration tools
