Zimbra Collaboration Suite
Zimbra today announced a Universal version of its Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) that offers support for both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. ZCS for Mac OS X is an open-source, enterprise-grade email and collaboration server and application that includes support for iCal, Apple Mail clients and Apple Xsan storage. In testing ZCS for Mac OS X, Zimbra says it has achieved speeds up to five times faster on Intel-based Mac clients. The ZCS 3.0 Open Source Edition for Mac OS X Tiger is free, and the commercially-supported Network Edition for Mac OS X Tiger is available for $28/mailbox/year, which includes full product support as well as software subscriptions to new releases, updates and patches.
"The launch of ZCS for Mac OS X in January 2006 prompted a tremendously positive response from Zimbra community members, and based on their overwhelming feedback, we're pleased to announce Universal support for Apple's PowerPC and Intel-based Macs," said Satish Dharmaraj, Zimbra CEO. "Zimbra users have been quick to test ZCS out on the new Intel-based Macs and there is a lot of excitement about the significantly increased performance."
