Interviews Open-Xchange Co-Founder Rafael Laguna at CloudFest 2019

Mar 29, 2019

Over hundred of the world’s largest hosting and telecommunications companies including 1&1, GoDaddy, Rackspace, KPN, Liberty Global, Proximus, and Vodafone are using Open-Xchange (OX) software, but what makes this email and office productivity provider stand out from the competition? At CloudFest 2019 this week in Germany, Editor-in-Chief Koen Stegeman had a VIDEO interview with Open-Xchange CEO and co-founder Rafael Laguna.

In this video interview Mr. Laguna talks about the benefits that Open-Xchange’s open source approach brings for the channel including hosting providers and service providers. He also offers a few glimpses of which companies he sees as serious competition, while at the same time he addresses a shift in channel value propositions in the international hosting market.

On HostingJournalist, we found an interview with Rafael Laguna at WorldHostingDays 2014 (now called CloudFest), an interview that was submitted to the news platform by hosting provider 1&1. Rafael Laguna shares with us what has changed in the market since then, while he also touches upon the sensitive topic of the hyperscalers grabbing market share within the global hosting market.
