RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE server software and CALs while providing the basic accessibility, protection, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and applications. But the price cuts don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You also have the ability to select the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BES data plan, saving your business $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who until now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will be required to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
