Russian company says it can replace Microsoft Exchange Server

Due to the geopolitical situation and governmental mandates, the world of software has become increasingly fragmented, providing opportunities for other companies to fill the role of conventional software giants.

Such is the case with RuPost, which is supposed to be a 1:1 replacement for Microsoft Exchange Sever for the Russian market.

RuPost is developed by the Astra corporate group and claims to implement the full functionality of Microsoft Exchange Server.

The solution provides mail, calendar, contacts, and address book search, and provides migration tools and templates that allow companies to easily migrate from Exchange to RuPost.

“First, we focused on solving the problems faced by organizations with large-scale infrastructure: a corporate communications system that would allow tens of thousands of users to interact in a single facility. IT infrastructure is heavily loaded and geographically dispersed,” explains Sergey Orlik, director of product and technology.

The company offers a full-stack and also replaces Windows with AstraLinuxOS. It also created ALD Pro, a replacement for Microsoft Active Directory.

“We are growing and strengthening the Linux ecosystem and creating our own ecosystem of interconnected solutions: a complete set of software products and services that customers can enjoy,” he said. can be obtained in one-stop mode from the supplier,” he said.

ALD Pro is set to release in December 2021, while RuPost will go on sale by the end of Q1 2022.

The solution is likely to find applications first in government settings, where a local solution is required, although Astra notes that companies can still apply for exceptions if Microsoft solution is really needed.
