VMware has just announced the availability of the next version of the Zimbra Collaboration Server, at least in BETA form. Version 8 will have several new, compelling features to help further convince those looking to make a move away from Microsoft Exchange or other e-mail & collaboration platforms toward Zimbra.
Here are the highlights:
- End Users Seamlessly Connect to Their Personal Clouds: Zimbra features a rich, browser based client and can be accessed on a wide range of devices and platforms.
- Integrated Unified Communications: Unified communications solutions from Cisco and others are now built-in to the Zimbra client for seamless voice communication.
- Manage IT-as-a-Service: You have the choice of deploying Zimbra behind your firewall or hosting at a growing number of service providers, instantly and without complex implementation or configuration requirements.
- Streamline Administration: Zimbra inherits a lot of the high availability, disaster recovery and backup features of VMware and leverages those to simplify day-to-day administration requirements.
