Is anyone familiar with a company called Coldspark? The create software to do "Enterprise Email Solutions".
I don't understand enough about email system administration to know why their product is valuable. What makes a system an "Enterprise Email" system?
What benefits do Coldspark's solutions provide? Are there any other equivalent vendors that provide similar functionality?
An Enterprise solution is one that costs a lot to obtain and maintain, and does half of what you want with twice the number of servers. It typically will contain a lot of features that make middle managers happy in their expensively tailored pants, while being a right pain for the people who have to use it and keep it running.
I can't commend on ColdSpark, but to me an "enterprise email system" is one that fits an enterprise. Large companies have requirements that are different from mom and pop. For the local small company a POP3 account may cut it. Or perhaps something web based like gmail will be ok. But get to larger organizations where you want to deal with inter-office routing, multiple, controlled entry/exit points to the internet, retention and destruction requirements for emails, eDiscovery, archiving, etc. and you need to step up to something more industrial, or "enterprise" like.
Obviously something that can handle "Free bananas in the kitchen!!!" well has to be considered enterprise, I'd say.
I am Clay lambert, one of the principal Co designers and coders for the Coldspark engine. I am responsible for its performance profile. It is an enterprise grade fault taulerant mail server and mail router. It is the world's fastest and highest capacity mail server to date globally. NO other has matched it's performance characteristics as far as I have seen. The company was sold and the parent company folded. It is no longer sold and was very expensive. Only approachable to large enterprises. It is the onlt mail server that can sit on the edge of the network. Employing advanced defensive and mail filtering features, behaving ad a mail firewall and router if needed. One sparkengjne can handle the capacity of 10 iron port servers. Thus at the time it provided a huge roi on energy and human resource costs. And easy to administer. You can reach me at Clay.firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions. Ciao!
