Ipswitch’s Method to Offer Messaging-as-a-Service

Ipswitch sells Internet email products based on Windows servers. The focus is on small and medium-sized businesses. In its field, Ipswitch is one of the established leaders.

The company has recently evolved a way of selling email-as-a-service, via its partner, Rackspace. Rackspace offers managed hosted applications. This usually means Rackspace puts up one or more blades at its data center for you, and runs the applications you want.

Rackspace started in 2004 with 25 Ipswitch mail servers, offering email-as-a-service. It now has some 525 mail servers, supporting about 100,000 seats. Most users access their email via Outlook, followed by Webmail. Nice growth for Rackspace, and a nice new channel for Ipswitch. ... David Ferris
