Linux-based Unison server to challenge Microsoft Unified Communications Platform

Filed under
Linux

A group of former execs from a Microsoft messaging hosting partner are going to launch a Linux-based unified communications platform that will compete directly against Microsoft.

Unison, a two-year-old developer based in New York, plans to release into beta testing the Linux server and Windows client code at CeBIT 2008 on March 4. The finished server, Windows client and forthcoming Linux client, will ship later this year, execs said.

The platform combines PBX, email, contact, calendar, contacts, instant messaging and directory and presence iservices onto a single Linux server and will compete directly against Microsoft’s Unified Communications platform, CMO Rurik Bradbury said.

Unison is based on many top open source components – including Mozilla’s Thunderbird client, MySQL, Jabber Instant Messaging and Clam AV.
