Worldwide, there are currently more active mailboxes on Sun Java Communications Suite than its two closest competitors combined. Sun Java Communications Suite is two orders of magnitude more scalable than other products and is the first major messaging and collaboration platform to include a Web 2.0 client. Communications Suite and Java Enterprise system are the premier Web 2.0 and J2EE application development platform.

Migration is the key enabler for hosted e-mail and messaging, calendaring and collaboration SaaS. Using the GSS Migration Toolkit service providers can now move business customers from on-premise Lotus Notes and Domino servers to SaaS offerings using Sun Java Communications Suite.

Using the GSS Migration Toolkit, enterprises and service providers can move e-mail, directory, calendar and other information from Notes and Domino to Sun Java Communications Suite. "We are introducing the GSS Migration Toolkit to enable the disruptive shift from on-premise servers and distributed systems to SaaS and highly centralized systems," said Ron Herardian, Chief Systems Architect at GSS.

For enterprises, switching to Sun Java Communications Suite has many benefits such as far lower total cost of ownership (TCO), vastly superior scalability, radical consolidation, and access to the latest Web 2.0 technology in the Sun Convergence client.

Together with Sun ISV offerings, Sun Java Communications Suite can meet the most demanding enterprise and requirements. Customers switching to Sun Java Communications Suite can continue using Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook or switch to open source clients such as Mozilla Thunderbird with the Lightning group calendaring add-on.

"Communication Suite 6 offers web, desktop and mobile access for enterprise users, all with a lower total cost of ownership. Sun ISVs like GSS that enable customers to migrate are a key part of our strategy," said Mayank Choudhary, Group Manager, Marketing Collaboration Products at Sun Microsystems.

The GSS Migration Toolkit works with all international language versions of Lotus Notes and Domino including double-byte languages such as Chinese and Japanese, supports Mozilla Thunderbird clients, and works with all platform versions of Sun Java Communications Suite including Solaris SPARC and x86 and Linux.
