Open-Xchange, Red Hat offer discount bundle

Open-Xchange, together with Red Hat, offers an open-source discount bundle.

Open-Xchange together with new partner Red Hat, announced a discounted bundle of open-source products that can be used to offer e-mail, directory, file sharing and other collaborative services.

The move comes as Open-Xchange, launched in 2004 in Olpe, Germany, seeks a niche in the competitive market for alternative open-source products.

For US$1,150, Open-Xchange is offering three software products: the open-source operating system Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Application Server and Open-Xchange 5, an open-source collaboration platform.

If sold separately, the products would cost a total US$2,198, according to company spokesman Christian Egle.

The products can be purchased at the company's Web site:

Until now, Open-Xchange 5 has run only on SuSE Linux, a competitor to Red Hat. Novell acquired SuSE in 2003. Open-Xchange still runs on SuSE.

Open-Xchange, which is based in New York, maintains its product development activities in Olpe.
