Title: CommuniGate Pro Real-Time Unified Messaging Server with Integrated Voice over IP on OpenVMS

CommuniGate Pro Real-Time Unified Messaging
Server with Integrated Voice over IP on OpenVMS
CommuniGate Pro and OpenVMS
  • Is the OpenVMS Corporate Unified Messaging Server
    on Integrity and AlphaServer systems
  • This product is fully endorsed by the HP
    Corporate OpenVMS Group
  • CommuniGate Pro, featured in the HP OpenVMS
    Integrity production launch video first aired in
    January 05
  • It is being marketed as the replacement for
    ALL-IN-1 and Office Server systems
  • OpenVMS has a very close partnership with
    CommuniGate Systems encompassing
  • the strategic relationship, technical support,
    benchmarking, marketing and partner programs
  • With the assistance of OpenVMS Management and
    Ambassadors, CommuniGate Systems are signing up
    OpenVMS Partners and System Integrators to
    support CommuniGate Pro on OpenVMS around the

ALL-IN-1/Office Server CommuniGate Pro
Interoperability options
  • Options include
  • Access from multiple Web Browsers to both
    ALL-IN-1/Office Server - via the Web Interface -
    and CommuniGate Pro
  • IMAP4 and POP3 access to both Office Server and
    CommuniGate Pro
  • Access from the native MS Outlook Client to both
    ALL-IN-1/Office Server - using the HP MAPI Driver
    - and CommuniGate Pro using the CGP MAPI
  • Ability to install CommuniGate Pro and
    ALL-IN-1/Office Server side-by-side on mixed
    OpenVMS AlphaServer and Integrity clusters,
    easing interoperability, data access and

Office Server message Migration to CommuniGate Pro
  • It is possible to move messages from Office
    Server V5.0 and V6.0 folders to CommuniGate Pro
    using the IMAP Servers of the two products and
    the CommuniGate Pro IMAP Migration Utility
  • ALL-IN-1 systems must be upgraded to Office
    Server V5.0 to access the IMAP Server. This
    upgrade is minor and leaves the File Cabinet
    completely untouched
  • CommuniGate Pro supports the flat file structure
    - .mbox the .mdir structure that stores messages
    in multiple directories and MultiMailbox where
    users can be assigned both in different
  • .mdir also supports the shared storage model
    whereby messages for multiple users are only
    stored once with pointers to each user.
  • Fortunately, this is the mechanism utilized by
    Office Server

Customer Case Study - Educational
  • University of California Santa Cruz
  • Consolidated several departmental servers (50,000
    accounts) into one centralized Dynamic Cluster
  • Support several different clients including
    Eudora, Outlook and Webmail branded to match UCSC
  • Developed integration with external
    authentication (Kerberos) system
  • In choosing a messaging provider, we needed
    assurance that the solution was not only proven,
    but was also standards-based, to allow for
    flexibility in supporting departmental
    requirements, and had the ability to handle
    fluctuating loads elegantly and with the utmost
    reliability. CommuniGate Pro Dynamic Cluster fit
    these requirements combining full messaging
    functionality, flexibility and unprecedented
    uptime. John Rudd, senior UNIX systems
    administrator UCSC
