Insight Server Version 3.0 available in IBM eServer xSeries "Value Bundles"

Dateline January 29, 2002 New York

Bynari Inc. (www.bynari.net) today announced the availability of InsightServer Version 3.0, which represents its "Best of Class" messaging and collaboration solution. Bynari also announced the IBM eServer xSeries "Value Bundles" which will include Red Hat 7.2 or SuSE 7.2, a Bynari Insight Mail Server, and two IBM xSeries servers.

This latest version of InsightServer adds significantly to its functionality, reliability, compatibility, and ease of use. As with previous versions, InsightServer 3.0 delivers a Linux based Mail Services product that provides an alternative to Microsoft Exchange and other enterprise messaging servers.

“Insight Server raises the bar for mail servers by adding a transparent change to MS Exchange clients," says Tom Adelstein, Bynari's Vice-President of Technology and the chief architect of InsightServer. "This new release delivers value-added capabilities to Outlook users with increased scalability, reliability, flexibility, and accessibility unbundled in previous messaging solutions."

Complete Desktop compatibility enables transparent migrations, flexible implementations

Services such as calendaring, shared folders, meeting management, and server side mail stores provide users with the same desktop the client views today. Version 3.0 eliminates downtime and training for InsightServer migration. Bynari's new technology allows Outlook to utilize facilities across all versions of Microsoft Outlook. This functionality allows for transparent migration for the desktop user and complete compatibility with all versions of Exchange to allow phased, mixed or total migrations.

Enhanced Management tools

Enhanced console management adds the ability to configure mail transfers via Bynari’s web-based interface. An InsightServer administrator can now configure options via the web console. InsightServer also allows administrators to minimize downtime while reducing migration tasks or requiring changes to network infrastructures.

Reliability, Ease of use, Cost efficient

Building on its previous releases and its Linux/Unix heritage, InsightServer offers a proven platform for deploying mission critical messaging solutions at an affordable price. Spiraling costs of proprietary messaging and collaboration products from Microsoft have caused many organizations to worry about their infrastructures. InsightServer provides significant cost savings for any organization while allowing for network stability.

OCB Reprographics, a large Southern California graphics firm and part of American Reprographics Company, has been running Bynari’s Insight Server in both its Orange County headquarters and its Tiger Reprographics subsidiary in San Diego. Larry Middendorf, OCB’s Systems Administrator states: “We were looking at several collaborative messaging applications when we became aware of InsightServer. We were used to the reliability of sendmail but needed more features. We like the open standards that InsightServer is built on. We get much of the functionality of the more expensive competing products on a stable and economical platform".

After installing Bynari, Larry went on to say. “The maintenance of this system is almost nonexistent. All we do add/remove accounts, and add to the Spam list and extension filtering list. We have a second server, identical to the OCB server, hosting the mail for our Tiger Reprographics group….. .An interesting note about this server is that we haven't rebooted it or really had to do anything with it since it was installed quite some months ago…”

Bynari InsightServer xSeries "Value Bundles"

Bynari has made available the IBM eServer xSeries "Value Bundles" which will include Red Hat 7.2 or SuSE 7.2, a Bynari Insight Mail Server, and two xSeries (one primary, one backup).

These Bundles are available now on the Bynari web site (www.bynari.net) and from IBM's business partners, including Mainline Information Systems, Inc. and Denver Solutions Group.

"InsightServer fits IBM's Linux initiatives by reducing resources required to operate while increasing availability, scalability and reliability of applications," says Richard Michos, vice president, IBM Linux Servers. "Combining IBM's xSeries, Linux and Bynari further validates IBM's Linux strategy and e-Infrastructure strategy."

"InsightServer provides business with the most cost efficient, robust and reliable alternative to Microsoft Exchange available in the market today," says David Wolff, head of Sales and Marketing for Bynari Inc. "Customers looking for alternatives to Microsoft's new licensing plans will find InsightServer on xSeries value bundles a very attractive option. We see cost savings of 70% or greater over comparably priced messaging and collaboration products."
