Open Source Migration

 Here I have listed out the Open Source products which are replacing the commercial products

1) Mail Server

     Linux Sendmail with cyrus-imap is the good opensource replace for other commercial mailing solutions like Microsoft Exchange , Lotus Notes etc. We can integrate MailScanner and Clam-AV with Sendmail. 

2) Web Server

   Apache web server can be used as a Replace for Microsoft IIS

3) Active Directory

 Fedora DS   Replace Microsoft AD  

4) Proxy Server

    Squid Proxy server is one of the best proxy server. Squid can be configured with lots of Access controls. Content filter, Upload & Download Limit, User Base access, time based access, block list, are the key features.

5) UTM
     Untangle , pfsense
6) Database
7) FTP Server
8) Network Monitoring Tools
     Cacti, zabbix,  
9) Asset Management
10) Bug Tracking
11) Web Mail
