The easy-to-use, cost-efficient and popular alternative to Microsoft’s server solutions

Enterprise server operating and management system with Active Directory functions and App Center

Univention Corporate Server (UCS) is an inexpensive and easy way to administer server applications and entire IT infrastructures. Why? UCS is based on Open Source infrastructure so it can be implemented with little effort and is also suitable for the operation of distributed, heterogeneous and virtualized IT infrastructures, regardless of whether you use Microsoft Windows, OS-X or Linux systems.

Key Features of UCS:

  • Enterprise Linux distribution as a basis for a stable, secure and cost-efficient IT infrastructure

  • Integrated management system for the central administration of servers, clients and users as well as a wide range of server applications

  • Identity management with single sign-on functions for users and cloud services

  • Microsoft Active Directory-compatible domain services for the uncomplicated integration of Microsoft operating systems

  • App Center for the easy installation and management of UCS components and applications from many well-known manufacturers

  • Functions for virtualizing server and desktop operating systems

  • All Univention products are 100% Open Source

Unlike other Linux operating systems, UCS provides an integrated identity and infrastructure management system. With this system, UCS is optimally suited for the provision of infrastructure services as well as for the central, cross-location and cross-platform administration of virtualized server and desktop systems. The self-explanatory web interface makes administration simple and possible from any client. The introduction is also simple as UCS can be easily integrated into existing IT environments, thanks to standard interfaces and easy-to-use connectors.
