Open-Xchange Releases OX App Suite Community Version

Cloud-based desktop provides central access to digital assets and consistent user experience on all devices

NUREMBERG, Germany, December 18, 2012 – Open-Xchange, maker of communication and collaboration software for the mobile-app economy, today released the community version of OX App Suite.

Based on a proven and highly scalable Linux, Apache and MySQL backend, Open-Xchange designed the OX App Suite web interface with responsive design principles for the cloud and mobile age, providing a consistent experience and ultra-fast performance across all devices regardless of location.

OX App Suite delivers a set of applications that supports easy management of email, contacts, calendars, media and all documents, optimizing workflow and productivity in this era of information overload. With the integration of Google Mail, Hotmail, Facebook and LinkedIn, users benefit from intuitive communication and sharing across all devices while ensuring that data stays secure in a central storage.

“The Internet is the most important innovation of our time, providing the foundation for a new global and truly connected society”, said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “Now more than ever before, there’s a need to regain control over our digital lives, which for many have become unmanageable. No matter how fragmented our life may be on the Internet, OX App Suite returns to users what matters most – a connected and productive experience.”

Open-Xchange´s software code can also be used to set up an on-premise installation in educational institutions, public sector organizations and SME’s to deliver a cloud service currently used by over 60 million users. It gives the freedom to move data between providers or from a hosted solution into an on-premise installation.

Open-Xchange expects the first cloud service providers to deploy OX App Suite to their customers by the end of Q1, 2013. Users of the commercial versions of OX6 are recommended to start planning and testing to move and upgrade with the Commercial Version of OX App Suite, which is scheduled for release in March, 2013.
