MILL VALLEY, Calif. -- Stalker Software, Inc. today announced that its CommuniGate® Pro messaging platform is the first to successfully host over 4.5 million short message service (SMS) accounts on a single server solution for Universal Communication Platform (UCP), as part of the company's European youth portal, uboot.com. This milestone illustrates Stalker Software's stability and flexibility of its server, CommuniGate Pro, in supporting millions of accounts with fail-safe reliability and high performance. "The 4.5 million milestone reflects an achievement in executing SMS messages effectively using a single server solution," said Vladimir Butenko, president and CEO of Stalker Software. "While it is uncommon for customers of this size to use our CommuniGate Pro without its dynamic cluster technology, we are delighted that the single server solution has proven its reliability and scalability for wireless text messaging services." "Within 18 months of integrating the CommuniGate Pro server, our user base jumped from 1.5 million accounts to 4.5 million," said Franz Jachim, managing director for uboot.com. Combining the technologies of the Internet and the mobile phone, uboot.com was established in February 2000 to host Web text- to- phone communication based on SMS.After originally deploying open-source cyrus for their message store, UCP switched to CommuniGate Pro for increased stability and high performance capabilities, in addition to its easy integration with wireless and voice processing applications. The CommuniGate Pro Messaging server runs on a Hewlett-Packard AlphaServer system using the Tru64 UNIX to provide a high-capacity IMAP-based message store. Stalker Software Inc.
