Dateline January 29th Linux World New York City– Today, senior officials of Bynari, Inc. say they released a third party plug-in for Microsoft® Outlook which will change the way organizations communicate and deliver software to the desktop while reducing costs as much as 70 percent. Bynari sees that peaking the interests of corporations’ top management. Bynari’s CTO, Tom Adelstein says, “I see this going right past the IT bottleneck and into the corporate bank account and bottom line.”

The makers of InsightConnector™ intend to significantly replace Microsoft® Exchange with Internet class mail servers including their own. InsightConnector and the growing popularity of SMTP provide the enabling technologies for what Adelstein calls the Internet mail segment. The market for SMTP mail servers has grown exponentially over the last two years on Linux and Microsoft servers. Bynari sees its product allowing their market segment to grow faster while grabbing a chunk of Microsoft’s market and their .NET strategy.

“In the early planning stages,” says Tom Adelstein, “we intended to only bundle InsightConnector™ with our Linux messaging and collaboration server. As we began testing we found that it also worked with a number of our competitors’ offerings. With such a large installed base of Outlook, we feel the faster our space grows, the more we will benefit. Competition validates product entries.”

Unbundled, InsightConnector provides a far reach into the messaging and collaboration space. Instead of using a proprietary alternative, such as someone else’s Calendar server, Bynari uses objects generated by Outlook. InsightConnector bundled with Bynari’s flagship product, InsightServer™, allows the install base of Outlook to remain in place while improving scalability, availability and significantly reducing costs. Migration requires little, if any, help desk support.

Freedom of Choice

“We see a large addressable market for our products, especially now that we can offer Outlook users a true alternative,” says Adelstein. “Many IT departments have searched for a way to replace Exchange while keeping Outlook. They’ve had little luck. Other developers have tried to fancy solutions while getting only part of the answer. Those IT departments and developers now have the technology they need.”

Bynari’s InsightServer Running on Linux and IBM®

Bynari’s InsightServer surfaced last year on an IBM mainframe compiled for Equant, Inc., the largest global provider of IP networking. On June 12th 2001, IBM announced that Winnebago Industries, Inc implemented Bynari InsightServer on an IBM eServer mainframe for messaging and collaboration. Winnebago Industries, Inc. chose Bynari Insight Server after learning it could save significantly on software licensing costs while benefiting from the unmatched reliability of the IBM mainframe.

“After the Winnebago articles,” says Adelstein, “we heard from many of the Global 2000 wanting to put their mail and messaging on reliable IBM S/390 and zSeries mainframes. They wanted and in some cases required centralized control over their data. They had large installed user bases of Outlook. They needed to centralize their data, control their growing server farms while maintaining their messaging capabilities. We’ve found this dilemma surfacing over and over.”

Bynari’s success working with IBM customers led Bynari to make their product available to the IBM eServer xSeries in "Value Bundles" which include Red Hat 7.2 or SuSE 7.2, a Bynari Insight Mail Server, and two xSeries (one primary, one backup). Bynari Inc. will work with IBM and its business partners to sell, deliver, and support Bynari Insight Server 3.0 which includes InsightConnector.

“We see IBM making Linux the workhorse of the messaging infrastructure,” says Adelstein. “I just don’t know how we could have climbed the hill before we made InsightConnector available. The plug-in completes the equation and finally provides a cost efficient solution for small to medium sized businesses or SMB’s as well as global enterprises.”
