bundles IEMS5 in latest production servers
Hongkong, September 29, 2001 -- Server manufacturing
giant Gigabyte Technology Ltd, also a key player in the global motherboard
market, has finalized plans with software developer International
Messaging Associates (IMA) to bundle IMA's latest Internet Exchange
Messaging Server (IEMS) 5 with gigabyte's GA and GS series rackmount
This was announced recently by Gigabyte's Director
for Networking and Server Products Etay Lee. "The partnership will
provide GS rackmount server users with the capability for a fully
featured and functional messaging environment since IEMS 5 complements
GS servers in speed, scalability, reliability, and performance.
Gigabyte produces close to 2,000 of its production
servers monthly. This is aside from the servers they produce for
other hardware OEMs such as Tatung, among others. Gigabyte carries
both Linux and Windows as operating systems for their servers.
"Gigabyte is recognized for their server's compactness
and high reliability which, in most ways, also complement the qualities
of IEMS5 as a messaging solution", says IMA President Tim Kehres.
Through this partnership, Kehres adds, we hope to widen the functionality
of IEMS5 in response to the ever-expanding demands of businesses
The Internet Exchange Messaging Server version
5 (IEMS v5) is a complete, standalone, open architecture messaging
solution and can be run as a distributed system, with different
modules hosted on separate machines on the LAN. This allows for
the simple and ordered expansion of the system as the organization
grows, or messaging needs change over time. IEMS distributed system
support, as well as extensive cross-platform support is unmatched
in the industry.
IEMS5 complies with proven Internet standards while
offering dependable mail storage, excellent migration support, directory
services, advanced spam and virus detection and control, and interoperability
among disparate email systems. It is supported under Windows 98,
2000, NT and major Linux distributions. It is easily scalable from
configurations suitable to SOHO or SME environments up to large,
distributed, corporate-size installations.
Meanwhile, Gigabyte's GS series are rackmount servers
provide the best platform solutions for Internet Service Providers
(ISPs), networking telecommunication, and space-constrained corporate
data centers. Although each of these servers has its own unique
features, all of which have been proven reliable, scalable, easy-to-administer,
