REDDOXX Appliance

REDDOXX is increasingly focusing on virtual appliances. The reason for this is obvious: Virtualisation projects are currently being implemented in many companies and organisations and there is a particularly strong demand for suitable solutions. The connection or positioning between the firewall and the mail server is basically done in a similar way as with conventional hardware appliances.

The virtual appliances from REDDOXX can be used flexibly in a wide variety of virtualisation infrastructures, for example in VMware, Xen or Hyper-V environments. They combine the advantages of a self-contained and precisely coordinated appliance system with the high reliability and low resource consumption of a virtualised application.
