Hi folks! So for a long time now MS Exchange has been the dominant player in the collaboration space. Well as you may know, VMware acquired Zimbra. What is Zimbra exactly?
Well Zimbra is an email and collaboration alternative to Exchange and it is open source. Now Zimbra can offer to us an alternative for those of us that prefer not to go down the Exchange path. Don’t get me wrong, I love Exchange and I’ve used it since the dawn of time. But it’s always nice to have a competitor in the market!
Zimbra is available in a VMware virtual appliance that you can try out so if you have a demo environment you can set it up in, then I encourage you to try it out. You can read more about it here.
