Russian broadliner Merlion and Zextras, a global developer of extensions for Zimbra open source mail server, announced a partnership agreement to sell Zextras products and services in Russia and the CIS.
This agreement will make Zextras solutions (organising a mailing service, chats, shared documents, data backup and storage, mobile device support, personal storage) available to a wide range of Russian users through Merlion partners in the form of license purchases. Zextras solutions are based on an open source software, which makes customers less dependent on developers and helps to expand and modify their information systems easily.
"We are pleased to announce the start of a partnership agreement with Merlion for sales of Zextras Suite in Russia and the CIS. Thanks to its reliability and high economic efficiency, Zextras Suite is used by millions of users around the world in large enterprises, educational and government institutions, and service providers. The agreement concluded with Merlion will help Russian users to get a world-class alternative to existing postal systems and office software on the market, save considerable funds and increase the competitiveness of their business", said Ekaterina Triantafilidi, an official representative of Zextras in Russia.
Founded in 2011, Zextras develops Zextras Suite software for Zimbra Open Source Edition and provides services for government agencies and businesses. There are more than 17 million users of Zextras Suite in the world. Zextras Suite is developed by the independent Italian company and it runs on Zimbra Open Source server. It allows you to restore and backup data in real time. In addition, latest version of this software synchronises Zimbra mailboxes with the Activesync protocol. Equally important is the administrative delegation, multi-storage with compression and deduplication, which saves 50% of hard disk space.
“Zextras has been added to our software portfolio, which means that today we can offer partners a world-class solution that will meet the need of both large and medium-sized businesses, and thanks to the integrated solution, Zimbra will allow many customers to optimise their internal communication processes”, says Mykhaylo Stepanyuk, director of Merlion software department.
