Reliability - Scalability - Performance
What use is any tool if performance problems, security vulnerabilities, or even routine maintenance procedures mean it isn't available when you need it? While many products are promoted solely on features, it is the underlying core architecture of FirstClass that sets the stage for unsurpassed reliability, scalability and performance.
Originally founded and developed by systems engineers from Nortel Networks, FirstClass brings to data and collaboration networks an architecture inspired by telephony-grade uptime and scalability requirements. Production FirstClass sites regularly achieve 99.99% and greater uptime, with the largest FirstClass servers today supporting more than 400,000 users on a single core server.
Your requirements may be more modest, but isn't it good to know that you can expand your communications network over time without worrying about loss of reliability or continuous hardware additions?
Connecting Knowledge Workers
FirstClass is much more than than traditional "Groupware" which most think of as email, contacts, calendars and document storage. With FirstClass, sites can deploy any range of applications, from discussion boards to instant messaging; blogging and web publishing to podcasts; online forms and workflow to surveys and database applications.
What makes FirstClass such an ideal platform for delivery of these applications? Quite a bit, actually:
