While customers buy SAMBA+ subscriptions online at shop.samba.plus, vendors and system integrators can bring SAMBA+ to their appliances or cloud services, too.
There are many reasons to integrate the free and open source software SAMBA+ into products and services:
It is better to look at open source software!
No vendor wants to integrate a proprietary SMB stack with huge efforts and then experience that their SMB stack provider has been acquired by the competition or discontinued the software service.
A long track record and veritable experience with SMB is important!
Most vendors do not want to integrate a young and non mature proprietary SMB stack in version 1.0 that promises to solve almost all challenges.
Diversity is a winner!
Intelligent companies avoid to rely on a single vendor for crucial components but prefer a vivid community that remains innovative, agile and open.
Do not pay for the same thing twice!
Many companies want to integrate a free and open source SMB stack, mature by peer review principles and not re-inventing the same wheel over and over again.
The Samba team has been founded in 1994 and produces Samba since then with autonomy and diversity, distributed over a lot of countries and employers. SerNet customers that integrate Samba in their products are part of a dynamic user foundation with mutual benefits from any progress of Samba.
