These files are fairly large in size and cumbersome to share with peers and clients. Two ways we would generally used – e-mailing and sharing via hosting account. Not saying it’s bad but e-mail comes with attachment limitation and usually doesn’t allow anything more than 100Mb.

  • The Paglo Crawler is an open source supersearcher — an agent that probes your network for devices and other IT assets, and discovers everything about them. The Crawler is part of Paglo, the first search engine for IT, a tool that specializes in searching the complex and varied data of IT networks, and in returning intelligent data in both simple text and rich quantitative form. The data that the Crawler finds is visible through a secure Paglo Web account. A single Paglo Crawler can be installed to probe an entire enterprise network. Paglo finds what no other search engine can find: IT assets. That includes the characteristics of devices on the network, such as type, configuration, and what other devices are connected. That kind of information about a network isn't collected neatly into documents that you can hunt for. If it was, Google could find it. But you know how it is — as soon as you document something in IT, it changes!

In short, I believe in groupware offerings outside of the halls of Microsoft. And it is in this spirit, that I will now take on the task of creating a list of the best open source alternatives to Microsoft Exchange.
