Collax's family of products

Collax, your IT infrastructureCollax FlexibleIT_Logo

Collax has been making system administrators' life a lot easier for many years by standardising and simplifying the management of Linux servers. There is no need to edit complex configuration files or manage many servers with different Linux distributions and versions.

As Collax produces a family of products, covering most of the requirements SMEs may have, the interfaces and the methodologies used are very similar so once you learned how to use one product all the others are a lot easier to learn than having to deal with different manufacturers with different web interfaces.

Not just a Linux server management console

Collax Configuration Report

While most users will just notice a professionally designed web interface there is a lot more to it. To guarantee maximum uptime for your infrastructure Collax runs its own software repository where all the packages of its Debian based distribution are tested for bugs and compatibility with other add-on software that you may have installed on your Collax server.

A team of engineers is constantly busy developing new features and improving existing ones so that you can enjoy the robustness, efficiency and cost savings a Linux platform can deliver without the management complexity.

Univention - Open management

The cost-efficient alternative to Windows serversUnivention - Open Source alternative to Microsoft Windows server

 Univention helps creating and managing Windows, OS X and Linux infrastructures providing Open Source alternatives to Microsoft based products.Univention Corporate Server building blocks

The core product is Univention Corporate Server (UCS), a flexible, cost-efficient and successful alternative for Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Small Business Server. It includes comprehensive Active Directory functionalities and an App Center that integrates and manages own or third party enterprise applications.
UCS is designed to operate as part of existing Microsoft infrastructures and it can assists you in replacing Microsoft Windows domains controllers with a few clicks.

UCS web-based management console is well suited for organizations of any size, either as a standard on-premises setup, in the cloud or in hybrid IT environments.

Integrated in UCS you will find also the Univention Corporate Client which will allow your organisation to configure and deploy Linux desktops on PCs, thin clients and virtual environments.

Do you really need to replace your Windows Server?

If you still use Windows 2003 you surely do as it will be totally unsupported by July 2015. If you use any other version of Windows Server you may consider how efficiently you are using your server, how much it costs in terms of support, hardware maintenance and electricity.

Many spent a lot of money for their new Windows Server but then they use it as a simple file and authentication server using about 5/10% of the CPU power available but still paying for the equivalent of an enterprise grade server.

Univention Corporate Server will allow you to purchase a much leaner server as it's a lot more efficient than a Windows Server or to get a lot more out of your existing IT investment by combining several services including MS Exchange features, security, virtualisation, etc on the same system making you benefit from massive saving in consultancy, support and CO2 emissions.
