Obox2 is a commercial product not available as open source, which is
probably why there is very little chatter about it. Obox2 itself is used
in many large installations at the moment and is considered mature. S3
is not that widely used.

If you are interested to find out more about obox2 I invite you to
contact our sales for more discussion.
