Website HostingNUREMBERG, Germany – Open-Xchange announced today tighter integration with the latest industry-standard control panel Parallels Plesk Panel 10.1, enabling hosting customers and resellers to choose their favorite WebMail application.

Open-Xchange will be available as an option that can be selected in the e-mail setup screen of Parallels Plesk Panel — making it easy for hosting and SaaS providers to replace the Standard Plesk Webmail in existing shared hosting environments with the feature-rich AJAX interface of Open-Xchange and deliver true business-class e-mail features.

“With Open-Xchange’s new availability with Parallels Plesk Panel in addition to Parallels Automation, Partners of all sizes can now easily deliver business class e-mail and communication solutions,” said John Zanni, vice president of alliances at Parallels. “This new capability delivers on what we have heard service providers want: make it easy to get started and the ability to upsell advanced features.”

intergenia, a leading hosting company with more than two million active websites and 40,000 Root and vServers, will use Open-Xchange and Parallels Plesk Panel to deploy end customers and resellers with Open-Xchange business-class e-mail and groupware beginning next quarter — providing users with additional PIM (Personal Information Management) features at no extra cost with an option to move to full groupware, as well as support for mobile devices.

“Open-Xchange and Parallels Plesk Panel have a great chance to become the de facto standard for business e-mail in the hosting industry,” said Tom Strohe, CEO of intergenia AG. “Parallels control panels and automation tools help hosters run their operations as efficiently as possible, while Open-Xchange provides us and our resellers with attractive features to increase the average revenue per user.”

Open-Xchange integrates e-mail, calendar, contact and task management with advanced groupware features such as information management and document sharing, along with cutting-edge social network integration. By adding the Open-Xchange mobility support option, users can receive push e-mail and synchronization of contacts, calendar and other information from their Open-Xchange account to their smartphones, including Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Nokia, Windows Mobile and others.

Open-Xchange’s unique “Social OX” features give users the ability to consolidate any kind of existing webmail accounts — for example from Google and Yahoo — into a folder in Open-Xchange so they can be managed more easily. Plus, contact details from social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Xing can be added automatically to the Open-Xchange address book — giving users easy access to the latest contact information within their personal network.

Open-Xchange has grown its number of users to more than 24 million people worldwide – an increase of 60 percent in 2010. SaaS partners include 1&1 Internet – the #1 hosting company worldwide, Network Solutions – the #3 hosting company in the U.S., Versatel (Germany), Dotster (U. S.), Lunarpages (U.S.) and iomart Group (U.K.).
