Heute: SerNet GmBH

In our new press format blog, we give our sponsors the opportunity to present their work in the open source sector themselves.

SerNet GmbH has been supporting the international Samba team and the corresponding open source project for many years. Among other things, the Göttingen-based company contributes to development, conferences and trade fairs. The release management for Samba is also sponsored by SerNet. A total of six members of the Samba team work at SerNet - together they have more than 50 years of Samba experience.

Under the name SAMBA+ (formerly: EnterpriseSAMBA), SerNet provides its own widely used and popular Samba packages. For special use cases, SerNet has recently developed SAMBA+ AIX and SAMBA+ Container. SAMBA+ AIX are Samba packages for the Unix operating system AIX from IBM. The packages have minimal dependencies on third-party libraries or other external package sources - but offer many advantages and support a wide range of functions. SerNet is also breaking new ground with its SAMBA+ Container solution, which offers a simple way to use Samba as a file server: ready-to-use integrated into an Ubuntu container.

SerNet is also the organiser of the annual Samba eXPerience conference - or simply: sambaXP. Since 2002, developers have presented the latest advances and users have shown how they successfully use Samba. The 21st edition of the event will take place online from 31 May to 2 June 2022.
