XMPP (Jabber) Servers sounding board


Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone had particularly strong feelings about any of the Jabber services available out there .. I'm looking at implementing (we're currently using jabber this for ~100 users, and some of my key selling points right now would be..

- ease of upgrade from jabberd 1.x (a boy can dream)
- ease of administration
- extensibility for more users
- good room control
- stability (go figure)

Regarding the infrastructure this will be sitting on, it will be either RHEL 4u4, or RHEL 5uX, on a VMware guest.



I've seen Openfire, which looks slick, but I was curious if anyone had any good experience out there, to shore up the obvious sales pitches. Any input is much appreciated.

Thx,


Mat

I have been running Jabber/Openfire @ the office for about 12months without any problems.

Hey seventy-7,

Thanks for the speedy reply. I'm curious, what size user base are you dealing with, and what platform you're running on?

oh yeah...

I guess one other item I forgot to mention .. not a game-breaker.. but I don't suppose you happen to have Openfire integrated into LDAP/Active Directory (sorry..yeah, I know..)?

I was curious with its ease, should you have tried it.

Na, I haven't integrated it with LDAP. The initial setup was only meant for a small group of users, but it had grown across the business. I imagine it shouldn't be too difficult.

But as I said, its been a solid service.
