RIM releases free BlackBerry server software
RIM is releasing a free version of its server software to help SMBs roll out BlackBerry services without major cost.

Research In Motion is set to release free BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express software, to support growing demand for BlackBerry services.

The Enterprise Server Express software enables secure, wireless synchronization with Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Windows Small Business Server. The free solution is intended to meet demand from SMBs that want to provide BlackBerry services but don't need all the features of the full BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and to make it more cost effective for businesses to connect their workers' personal BlackBerry devices to work email.

"Today we are announcing an exciting new offering that further expands the market opportunity for the BlackBerry platform," said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO, Research In Motion. "In a marketplace where smartphones are becoming ubiquitous, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express significantly raises the bar by providing a cost-effective solution that allows companies of all sizes to support enterprise-grade mobile connectivity for all employees without compromising security or manageability."

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express works with Microsoft Exchange 2010, 2007 and 2003 and Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2008 and 2003.

The software should be available to download from March, from www.blackberry.com.
