Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and applications. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers also get the option to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone support and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. After that they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
