Jabber is an instant messaging standard, defined by the Jabber Software Foundation (JSF) and standardized as eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Jabber.org is both the reference website regarding Jabber, its extensions and its implementation and one of the most visible Jabber-based public instant messaging server.
Jabber.org is probably the most famous Jabber server as it was historically the first in operation.
In February 2006, Jabber.org has upgraded to ejabberd. Switching to this software is an important decision for the Jabber.org admin team. The Jabber.org server currently has more than 185 000 registered users and regularly gathers over 10 000 simultaneous users. It also has nearly 2 000 connections to other jabber servers.
For ejabberd and ProcessOne, this decision is a recognition of ejabberd's scalability, robustness and broad feature sets. As a result of this migration, the ProcessOne and Jabber.org teams will collaborate to improve the ejabberd software.
This fact will boost ejabberd's development speed and will accelerate adoption for large scale Jabber deployments.
ProcessOne is a company specialized in high-performance messaging solutions. The company actively develops the ejabberd server and offers strong commercial support for ejabberd installations around the world. It has customers managing millions of registered users and, as a result, ProcessOne has emerged as one of the major messaging solution providers.

The Jabber Software Foundation (JSF) is a non-profit organization that builds open application protocols on top of the IETF's Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). Widely considered the lingua franca of instant messaging, XMPP is an Internet standard for presence, real-time messaging, and streaming XML that grew out of the popular Jabber open-source technologies first released in 1999. With approval of XMPP by the IETF in 2004, the JSF continues to develop XMPP extensions that meet the needs of its many stakeholders: open-source and commercial developers (including Apple, HP, Oracle, and Sun), organizations large and small (including the U.S. defense establishment and most Wall Street investment banks), Internet and mobile service providers (including Google and Orange), and over 20 million end users worldwide.
Originally in 1999 (I think August). The jabber.org server was the first Jabber server on the Internet and has always been considered the most prominent Jabber server on the network (the "center of the federation"). That's one reason why we have more server-to-server connections than any other server.
The jabber.org server has always used the jabberd 1.x (before that jabberd 0.x) codebase. Several years ago we deployed connection manager software from Jabber Inc. to manage the large number of client and server connections we receive at the jabber.org server, but we still used the jabberd 1.x codebase for the core router.
We needed to switch from our older setup, which had some fairly serious stability issues. There were three possible solutions:
The JSF is committed to using open-source software whenever possible, so switching to ejabberd was a natural move for us.
Improved stability, full XMPP compliance, support for a wider range of XMPP extensions (e.g., pubsub), and a more frequently maintained codebase.
Located all over the world, our customers know that our solutions really do deliver return on investment.
