Stalker Software, Inc. announced
Super-Symmetric, its high-end CommuniGate Pro messaging system which,
according to the company, can serve 200,000 accounts on a single server
installation and support several million accounts on heterogeneous multi-server
clusters. Key features include multiplatform support (including Linux,
Windows, and Mac OS), high scalability, administration via the Web, and
extensive multidomain support.
According to Stalker Software, CommuniGate Pro is the first product
to provide true message clustering that’s based on account-level synchronization.
Before the CommuniGate Pro Dynamic Cluster release, large ISPs had to
use solutions that relied on OS- and FileSystem-level locking. The company
claims that these solutions were advertised as scalable and reliable,
but suffered from instability, and performance drops were inevitable.
The product is updated regularly, as the history
of updates shows.
Stalker Software introduces super-symmetric CommuniGate Pro v. 3.3b1, a message clustering system with account-level synchronization, Web GUI, and more.
The account-level synchronization scheme used in CommuniGate Pro Cluster
is based on a TCP/IP protocol and provides nonlocking, multiaccess to
all mailboxes served by the Cluster. Stalker Software claims that after
being released from their file-locking duties, the same storage devices
(file servers) may now be used to handle a larger number of accounts than
they could process with older solutions, with increased stability and
The CommuniGate Pro Free Trial Version is available
now. The company posts updated versions (both betas and finals) on
a regular basis.
