Let‘s hope it does not affect SOGo...
We have exciting news to share with you. Today, Akamai Technologies of Cambridge, Massachusetts announced its acquisition of Inverse. Akamai is a global content delivery network, cybersecurity and cloud service company, providing web and internet security services.
The Inverse team is looking forward to becoming part of Akamai's Enterprise security group. We plan to continue to support Inverse's current offerings and open source community as we unite the businesses.
Learn more about this news by viewing the press release and blog post that went out moments ago. Thank you again for your ongoing support and loyalty as a community member. We look forward to continuing to improve our open source software solutions.
This is interesting. I wonder how Inverse with its products fits with Akamai, it isn't really obvious to me.

@nebulon Probably no synergy. The CFO of Akamai was bored and needed to justify his existence and obscene salary by doing something. Same old story for these big boys. Don't really know how to develop and grow their core business, but they have to show their investors how clever and powerful they are.
@nebulon From what I've heard, they bought the company because of the people, not the product.
@luckow well if this is just an acqui-hire then I'm not too hopeful for SOGo as such, unless they tried to get the people from the other projects of inverse
@nebulon from an alternative perspective we can check out OX (open xchange) and kopano. I know: both are beasts in terms of interfering with the platform itself

We are currently Fruux users but with enough issues with Fruux that we'd like to move our shared calendars and address books to a Cloudron app. We're currently using invoiceninja and rocketchat in production via Cloudron.
Should we go with SOGo or NextCloud? NextCloud has always seemed a bit top-heavy – we don't need to move email in and we are handling file storage in project management.
Radicale won't work for us as there is no well-thought-out permissions structure for shared calendars and address books which is important for us.
Anyway, we are deciding between SOGo or NextCloud for CalDAV/CardDAV sharing. Anyone here have a strong opinion after working with both?
Dark horse candidates also welcome. It's amazing that CardDAV and CalDAV are so difficult after the main issues were solved 15 years ago (both actually worked great with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. A clear case of Embrace, Extend, Extinguish by all of Apple, Microsoft, Google.
@foliovision +1 for SOGo (at the moment). Use TbSync as a potential add-on for thunderbird https://addons.thunderbird.net/de/thunderbird/addon/tbsync/ to have multiple endpoints and a better sync with different calendar servers.

@luckow Thanks for the tip about enforcing use through Thunderbird/a compliant client. Any idea of how SOGo fares with iOS sync?
@jdaviescoates Thanks for the tip about the Sabre/dav request. I've added my feedback (not positive sadly) based on five years of active use of Fruux with various MacOS and recent version of iOS (I'm a relative latecomer to iPhones as I stopped using cellphones between about 2013 and 2018: now I have to have one for banking unfortunately and am surrounded by a pack of rabid iPhone users both at work and at home).
PS. Could someone somewhere please upvote a post for me so I can post more often than every six minutes.
