In addition to the standard packages available in the shop, SerNet also offers the creation of customer specific packages for SAMBA+. These packages contain specific extensions or patches or are strongly restricted to a specific use.
Packages with enhanced features provide additional flexibility and areas of application - the restriction of features, on the other hand, serves to increase security and robustness by reducing attack vectors and provide a smaller memory footprint on systems with limited performance.
In the questionnaire on the right we offer you the possibility to contact us directly. In the next paragraph we describe the advantages especially for manufacturers if they decide to use the open source solution SAMBA+ instead of relying on a proprietary SMB stack.
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.
Extended lifecycle, reduced costs
SAMBA+ Long Term Support (LTS) packages provide 36 month security updates instead of 18. This extends lifecycles significantly and leads to reduced costs, especially for OEMs.
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.
