Blackberry Enterprise Server

I am in a process of installing Blackberry Enterprise server.

i checked and there is Blackberry Enterprise server express (free) and Blackberry Enterprise server, apparently for the Blackberry Enterprise server, it requires a License (not free).

we only have in our organization 10 Blackberry's users and i am not sure what is the difference between the Blackberry Enterprise server and the Blackberry Enterprise server express.

an advice will be much apprciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

BES (not express) offers over and above BES Express:
- More IT policies (470+ compared to ~40)
- High Availability
- Monitoring Service
- Enterprise instant messaging integration
- Mobile voice system integration

For 10 users, unless you're required to adhere to a security body's certification (e.g. CESG in the UK) then BES Express would most likely be fine.

thank you for clearing this out for me. iam not sure about the security body certification, is it something to do with blackberry or our organization in general you mean?

so for redirecting emails and synch PIM information, calendars, contacts... (which is most what we need), you recommend express.
Your organization. Typically if you're in the public sector or high-profile financial organizations you might have strict laws governing the security of information, in which case BES is best as it provides comprehensive (and then some) policies.

For sync of email/calendar/contacts etc then both will do the job; however express is absolutely fine and more cost effective for just 10 people.
