Cirrus Hits the Cloud with Open-Xchange

Hosting provider CirrusHosting announced it will begin provided groupware and collaboration services made available by the Open-Xchange software stack.

Canada-based CirrusHosting will make available the Google Apps for Business and Microsoft Exchange server alternative to help companies seeking a centralized collaboration and communication solutions.

Among the apps included in Open-Xchange are email, a calendar, productivity and file sharing tools, task management, and social networking features. Unlike many groupware solutions, Open-Xchange is designed to integrate flawlessly with a multitude of hardware and software platforms, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets.

"In 2013, the security and privacy landscape changed forever. Canadian government and business can no longer take the financial and legal risk of entrusting their and their customer's data to companies that are not bound by the same regulatory frameworks," commented Cirrus CEO Ehsan Mirdamadi. "But, nor can they afford to ignore the economic benefits of cloud collaboration. Our Open-Xchange plans combine the best in cloud collaboration software with hosting that Canadian organizations can rely on."
