The Atlas case study - How Czech web portal Atlas implemented a scalable email server using software from Kerio Technologies 2003-07-16T17:09:00Z the-atlas-case-study-how-czech-web-portal-atlas-implemented-a-scalable-email-server-using-software-from-kerio-technologies by Michal Blha, Chief Technology Officer, Atlas Maintaining the position of second largest web portal is not an easy task. In addition to keeping an up-to-date web directory, providing exact full-text search results, and offering a reasonable selection of news, entertainment and online shopping, the portal must also provide reliable mail services to its users. Atlas.cz has managed to do just that, and as the second largest web portal in the Czech Republic, it provides services to more than 3 million Internet users in the country. The Prague-based company was formed in 1997 and soon became a popular Internet destination. Atlas.cz was first to introduce full-text search and was the first portal to offer free mail for Czech web surfers now available at mujmail.atlas.cz. In 1999, the Atlas homepage migrated to msn.atlas.cz as part of Microsofts MSN project, and resided there for the following two years. With its user base growing rapidly, along with its free mail service, Atlas was at a crossroads. How would they support up to 1 million mail boxes with 99% reliability? Could they get a highly scalable mail server that supported server clustering and fail-over, and performed multiple anti-spam measures while scanning thousands of emails per minute for viruses? One million account mail server Atlas was looking for an email solution that could handle 750,000 mail boxes in multiple domains with 500,000 active users. The mail server would be required to handle several hundred concurrent IMAP connections, several thousand concurrent Web mail users and several hundred concurrent POP3 connections. More importantly, as a provider of free mail services, Atlas was troubled by the increasing number of spam messages and the ensuing overload of outgoing messages that the existing system was not able to handle properly. Since its inception in 1997, Atlas.cz had been using Microsoft Commercial Internet Server for hosting email, and the aging product was not able to keep up with the needs of a growing web mail solution. At the beginning of 2002, Atlas started looking for a replacement. The requirements were tough reliability, scalability, security, a reasonable price, and most importantly, technical support. Atlas.cz was looking for a mail server that could handle up to 1 million mail accounts and only a few products made it to the final stage Vircom VOPmail, Stalker CommuniGate Pro, NetWin DMail, Rockliffe MailSite and Kerio MailServer. Price/performance criteria Despite the favorable reputation, Stalker demanded a much higher price than what Atlas was able to pay. VOPmail performed well in initial testing but proved to not be scalable enough handle the Atlas user base; it had also performed poorly in database lookup and had very limited antivirus support. When we firstcame across Kerio MailServer 5, it was a relatively new product, says Michal Blha, chief technology officer for Atlas. We gave it a shot and tested its SMTP server. The results were surprisingly good. In summer 2002, we redirected all SMTP traffic to one Apple Power Mac G4 running Kerio MailServer and we experienced no delays in mail delivery or any problems with mail overload. Kerios winning solution Eventually, Atlas chose Kerio MailServer over the competing mail servers and started designing the final architecture. It soon became apparent that to maintain the mail systems high availability, the mail server needed to run in a cluster. The mail server system was divided into separate front-end and back-end parts. The front-end is responsible for receiving and routing incoming SMTP messages, performing anti-spam control, antivirus checking (using the NOD32 antivirus from Eset) and acting as a proxy for POP3 and IMAP connections. Two (placed in cascade) front-end servers using Kerios built-in load balancing handle 25,000 messages or about 1 GB of data sent and received per hour. The average CPU utilization is about 25%. One of the front-end servers at Atlas is also configured for redundant backup. Each received mail is stored on a backup disk and can be re-sent if needed. This fills the gap between regular backup of the main back-end servers and ensures that none of the millions of emails is lost even in a total disaster situation. Because each mail is basically delivered twice, once on backup disk and once to the back-end server, this adds a load to the Kerio MailServer engine. Kerio MailServer handles it without any problems. Three back-end servers (each maintaining 33% of mailboxes) perform the actual message storage, handling all POP3 and IMAP connections from the front-end. Each of these back-end servers provide nearly 1TB of fully redundant storage space. A few customizations to the product were needed. Because the native user directory in Kerio MailServer could not support the number accounts required, it instead connects to an LDAP directory, which accesses and stores user data in a SQL database. Since Kerio MailServer features IMAP, it was very easy for Atlas to integrate it with their already developed web mail, allowing them to maintain their custom design and portal functions. Atlas web mail directly accesses message storage using IMAP. All told, Atlas uses five Kerio MailServers all running on Windows 2000 Server with up to1GB RAM and Dual Pentium III 1GHz processors. Importance of technical support Kerio provided us with excellent technical support, says Michal Blha. We had a few specific requests such as hooking up our existing user database that we did not want to migrate anywhere else. We also needed to migrate from our previous mail server to the current one without any interruption in service. Finally, Kerio MailServer helped us implement our anti-spam and anti-bombing rules that wed developed over the years. The migration took place over one night, pretty much unnoticed by Atlas users. What we liked most was the fact that Kerio MailServer did not require the purchase of any additional hardware. Apart from mail storage, we are running the whole system on four fairly standard servers that are equipped with extra memory. The system is stable and fast, with no mail queue buildup under heavy load, adds Pavel Sodomka, president at ATLAS.CZ Whats more, after the testing and implementation phases were done, Atlas was able assign the bulk of its IT staff working on the project to other tasks. Atlas continues to improve its own anti-spam filters in line with its primary mission: to offer easy to use email free of spam and viruses. Staying focused Atlas had started as a small company several years ago and emerged as multinational company with offices in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It answers several million Internet search queries a day and provides secure mail services to over half million users. Kerio MailServer provides Atlas with scalable messaging to help the number two web portal focus on the ultimate goal becoming number one.

Kerio Network Monitor tracks down personal surfing at work 2003-02-12T19:28:00Z kerio-network-monitor-tracks-down-personal-surfing-at-work Worried about what your employees are doing on the web during office hours? You probably should be. The charms of the Internet are difficult to resist. Recent reports estimate that 60% of all online consumer purchases occur during business hours. Everything from low cost travel arrangements to securities trading is available online. Email and instant messaging allow for much less conspicuous long distance communication than the telephone for keeping up with friends and family. Content filtering products can be useful for blocking many types of web access, but cant distinguish what is a valid or invalid use of a specific resource. The threat of detection discourages improper behaviour, but only if you have a tool that lets you easily determine who is doing what. Enter Kerio Network Monitor. Kerio Network Monitor displays all Internet activities on the local network in real-time. Its simple and non-technical graphic display of web pages and emails gives administrators and executives instant access to what their users are doing online at any given moment, whether checking the hockey scores or sending out sensitive information that could get into the hands of competitors. Kerio Network Monitor provides this information sorted according to user, and can create a report of visited web pages with the click of a button. Kerio Network Monitor can also display bandwidth usage in real-time line graphs. The administrator can monitor the total bandwidth and compare it to the usage of any specific user. This helps maintain overall network stability by identifying frequent downloaders or bandwidth hogs. Once a company grows to more than a handful of people, it becomes easier for employees to use Internet for personal purposes, says Dusan Vitek, Director of Marketing for Kerio Technologies. With Kerio Network Monitor, an administrator can get a detailed snapshot of each employees web activity and can easily view all emails sent or received. But monitoring is only part of the story. More importantly, a company needs reasonable Internet and email usage policy that clearly describes companys perspective on this issue. And if people know they are being watched they are less likely to waste time surfing or chatting. Pricing and Availability The Kerio Network Monitor 2.0 is available through Infotronics at www.infotronics.com.au or by contacting +61 3 9798 4071. The Kerio Network Monitor 2.0 starts at $365 +GST for 25 users.

Founded in 2001, Kerio Technologies was formed around the original team of developers that designed the hugely successful network firewall WinRoute for Windows based operating systems. The company continues to develop a networking tool, network and desktop firewalls, and secure workgroup messaging systems for the SME market. Kerio's corporate headquarters are located in Santa Clara, California, with offices in France, Great Britain and the Czech Republic. Kerio makes workgroup collaboration focus of latest mail server release 2003-01-02T17:05:00Z kerio-makes-workgroup-collaboration-focus-of-latest-mail-server-release-1 Kerio Technologies, a software developer specialising in security solutions for small and mid-sized businesses, has launched the new version of its multi-platform messaging solution, Kerio MailServer 5.5. This secure mail and workgroup server provides a variety of methods for securely accessing mailboxes, a unique internal anti-virus control, and a powerful anti-spam filter. Now businesses can also use Kerio MailServer 5.5 for managing and sharing client contacts and running news or discussion mailing lists. For Windows network administrators, Kerio MailServer 5.5 is the first non-Microsoft mail server that provides full Active Directory integration. The most eagerly anticipated feature is the new server-based address book, which supports client contact management and sharing via the WebMail interface. Using the LDAP protocol and the included synchronisation agent, contacts can also be stored and updated locally in Outlook Express. The synchronisation agent also supports folder sharing in Kerio MailServer so that email stored locally in Outlook Express folders can be made instantly available to authorised users. For larger networks, directory services can greatly simplify network client management, and having a mail server that can store and update accounts using the directory contributes to this benefit. Active Directory, Microsoft's solution on Windows 2000 Server, is a popular LDAP compliant product that never natively connected to any product other than MS Exchange - until now. Kerio MailServer 5.5 boasts complete Active Directory integration, for both storing and editing client accounts. What's more, the internal account database in Kerio MailServer can be run concurrently with Active Directory, to provide additional support for such wisely used features as aliases, groups and mailing lists. Anti-virus control is still a key feature of Kerio MailServer 5.5, with support for several third party scanning solutions. Kerio MailServer 5.5 with McAfee Anti-Virus combines all the new features with the convenience of integrated virus scanning and the dependability of McAfee Security. Small Enterprise is not an oxymoron. Companies with fewer than 100 employees expect the same reliability, accessibility, and security as much larger organisations, says Dusan Vitek, Director of Marketing for Kerio Technologies. The problem is that the price and complexity of most enterprise messaging solutions prohibit adoption by smaller companies that pay a considerably higher amount per client for solutions that they don't even have the IT resources to maintain. Kerio MailServer can turn any network administrator into an email messaging guru within minutes for less than the cost of the operating system required to run MS Exchange 2000. Scalability is not an issue either; Kerio MailServer can support several thousand clients and connect directly to Active Directory. Pricing and Availability Kerio MailServer 5.5 is now available through Kerio Authorised Resellers and the Kerio Store at . Kerio MailServer 5.5 is US$395 for the product with antivirus plug-ins (Grisoft AVG, Eset NOD32, F-Secure, CA eTrust InoculateIT or Sophos SAVI) and US$679 for the version with integrated McAfee antivirus.

Infotronics appoints FUJITSU & TTH as Authorised OneApp/CPU SeNTinel Dealer Partners 2002-10-14T16:04:00Z infotronics-appoints-fujitsu-amp-tth-as-authorised-oneapp-cpu-sentinel-dealer-partners Following the recent successful tour 'downunder' by Steve Dunton (Techtonik UK) Infotronics has appointed Fujitsu and Technology Trading House as Authorised Dealer Partners for OneApp/CPU SeNTinel. Infotronics Channel Manager Sara Halls said that Steve Dunton's short visit played an important role in the appointment of Fujitsu and TTH. "Steve showcased OneApp/CPU SeNTinel at seminars up and down the east coast. Everyone was excited by the products abilities to manage license use and stop servers being overloaded at critical times. We are excited to welcome Fujitsu and TTH on board as Authorised Dealer Partners. They are well placed to represent these products in the marketplace. As one of Australia's leading systems integrators Fujitsu recognises that no one vendor has a monopoly on great ideas. We have many strong vendor alliances that enable us to offer the right product to meet our customers needs," said Paul Statham, Fujitsu's New Business Development manager. " We're pleased to have formed an alliance with Infotronics and to be able to offer our customers OneApp/CPU SeNTinel - a product that gives IT managers control where they need it - particularly in areas such as the control of applications and CPU usage. TTH's Troy Sampson believes both OneApp & CPU SeNTinel fit neatly into the suite of products they now offer in the Queensland market place. "This is a good opportunity for TTH to offer our current clients extra features designed specifically for Terminal Server and Citrix environments. Most Citrix sites run a diverse range of applications and often there is difficulty in managing these applications. We have already launched these products to our current Citrix User Group and evaluations are being picked up fast. There has been a lot of interest in both these products and we welcome value-add products that give our clients added security and control."

Techtonik Ltd Announce Powerful CPU Capping Solution &Expand Outside the Thin Client Arena 2002-08-05T19:45:00Z techtonik-ltd-announce-powerful-cpu-capping-solution-amp-expand-outside-the-thin-client-arena Leading Thin Client Software manufacturer Techtonik, has released their newONEAPP CPU seNTinel product. The product is designed to control CPU allocation of any application on Windows NT or 2000 Server, Terminal Server and Windows NT, 2000 and XP Workstation. Delivering consistently high levels of resource to end users is a daunting task for those responsible for managing and supporting Windows NT-based machines. Most IT managers have seen this problem, especially in the multi server environment. Until now, not much could be done to control applications in terms of the amount of CPU usage they are allowed. Load balancing technologies can be used to ease stress on certain servers, but this does not stop any application utilising all of the processor resources. A single user opening an application can take processor usage to 100%; the result can be significant across the enterprise, machines can lock up or run very slowly. ONEAPP CPU seNTinel can now give control where it is needed. I.e. control graphically intensive applications or run away system services, thus protecting CPU processing integrity. "CPU seNTinel is a useful tool to ease the IT departments headache, thus we have priced it accordingly" said Peter Johnson, Techtonik Ltd Managing Director. "You do not need to run ONEAPP for CPU seNTinel to work", "we really believe that most IT managers will want this level of control in their environment, be it terminal services or not". ONEAPP CPU seNTinel is available for a 10 day evaluation on www.oneapp.co.uk/site/sentinel and is aggressively priced at a suggested retail of $285.00 +GST per server.
