Collax Business Server

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.

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.

With Collax products you have also the peace of mind that all configurations are well documented as it creates for you a report containing every single service running on the infrastructure.
