Robust, single-server solution designed for small business.

Scalix Small Business Edition is a robust, single-server messaging solution designed for small businesses. It is based on Scalix Collaboration Platform, which serves as the foundation for all our product editions. In addition to the Scalix Collaboration Platform components and features, our Small Business Edition provides the following incremental capabilities:

Wireless Solution of Choice

Scalix meets all your needs for wireless Email, Calendar and Contact management. Basic wireless browser access to Email is provided through the included Scalix Mobile Web Client. For push Email and wireless Calendar and Contact synchronization on ActiveSync-enabled devices, you can run the optional Scalix ActiveSync addon product right on your Scalix server or on a separate system. BlackBerry deployments are fully supported with no client install required using the Scalix Connect for BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

TNEF support for transparent Exchange co-existence.

Scalix offers full interoperability with proprietary Microsoft Exchange environments, using TNEF for transparent server-to-server co-existence. This gives you the option of either maintaining a mixed environment or migrating to Scalix over an extended period. With Scalix, "what you see is what they sent." You get full message and calendaring fidelity and reply-ability for all Outlook groupware features including shared task reminders. When you receive a meeting request from an Exchange user, for example, it looks and acts like your other meeting requests.

Instant, user-specific recovery of deleted items.

Mail administrators live in fear of the phone call from an executive who has accidentally deleted an important presentation needed for a meeting that is about to begin. If it hasn’t happened to you already, you know some day it will. Scalix solves this problem with its Recovery Folder feature. The Recovery Folder retains emails removed from the user's Deleted Items folder, enabling Scalix Premium Users to rapidly recover deleted items on a user-specific basis. The Recovery Folder itself is normally hidden from the user's view, but, when needed, you can make it visible to the user with a single click. You can enable the Recovery Folder feature and set the retention period for folder content on a user-specific basis.

Active Directory Extensions

Scalix Server integrates with any LDAP-based directory such as Microsoft Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, RedHat/Fedora Directory Server, OpenLDAP and others. This gives you choice, flexibility, and investment protection. In addition, Scalix provides Active Directory extensions so that Scalix-specific object classes and attributes can be created within Active Directory. With Active Directory Extensions, two new Scalix-specific tabs appear in the Active Directory Users and Computers interface (ADUC), and you can manage all Scalix users and groups using the easy and familiar interface and wizards.

Scalix Migration Tool for Exchange

The optional Scalix Migration Tool for Exchange lets you easily migrate user data from Exchange 5.5, 2000, or 2003 to Scalix Premium User mailboxes. No changes to your corporate directory or network topology are required. The automated tool reliably migrates all mailboxes, messages, public folders, calendars, and directory data from your existing mail system. The migration process ensures full mailbox and message fidelity and message reply-ability. And since Scalix provides transparent server-to-server co-existence with Exchange, you can choose to maintain a mixed environment or migrate on any schedule you choose.

Small Business Edition comes bundled with either 20 or 50 Premium Users. More Premium Users can be purchased in packs of 10 or 25. Scalix Small Business Edition provides three Standard Users for every Premium User. This ratio can be unlocked to provision an unlimited number of Standard Users with an annual Premium Support commitment.
