Stalker Software Announces CommuniGate Pro Server

After the successful launch of the Stalker Internet Mail Server, Stalker Software announced the CommuniGate Pro messaging server for the Rhapsody family of operating environments.

The new reincarnation of the CommuniGate integrated messaging system unifies the performance and standard-compliance of the SIMS with flexibility and powerful features of the modular MacOS CommuniGate System.

The CommuniGate Pro is based on the Rhapsody Foundation framework and can run under all operating systems supported with the Rhapsody "Yellow-box": Rhapsody for Power Macintosh, Rhapsody for Intel, and the Yellow Box for Windows NT.

The CommuniGate Pro design employs many modern OS techniques, especially multi-threading. Unlike other servers that use one separate thread to process a message, messages in the CommuniGate Pro are processed with 4-6 threads on their paths to destinations. For high-volume sites, such as major ISPs, this means a huge performance benefit, especially for multi-processor servers. The CommuniGate Pro server is completely SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) ready. The SMTP component of the CommuniGate Pro server incorporates all the anti-spamming features implemented in the CommuniGate SMTP and Stalker Internet Mail Server.
