Built on the power of VMware’s virtualization and cloud expertise, Zimbra can be deployed in a private cloud as a virtual appliance or hosted in the public cloud, making it easy for IT to deploy, manage and scale at dramatically lower costs compared to legacy solutions.
Bring Together Email, Calendaring and Unified Communications
VMware Zimbra’s innovative post-PC email, calendar and collaboration solution solves the challenges faced by organizations mired in legacy communications infrastructure.
Zimbra provides end users with a feature-rich browser-based experience that enables them to seamlessly and securely connect to their personal clouds on any device or platform. Zimbra’s smarter mailbox helps manage information and activity across their email, voice, social, calendar, address book, tasks and enterprise applications. Zimbra offers anywhere access, both online and offline, and synchs across multiple devices and smartphones (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry), while maintaining compatibility with all existing desktop email and calendar clients.
Zimbra provides the choice of running securely in any private cloud as a virtual appliance or hosted in the public cloud. The software virtual appliance enables IT administrators to instantly deploy their own private email and collaboration cloud on top of VMware vSphere without complex installation and configuration workflows. With an open architecture and APIs, Zimbra integrates seamlessly with existing and new enterprise applications. Zimbra provides out-of-the-box integration with Cisco and Mitel for click-to-call, visual voicemail, call record history, presence and instant messaging; additionally, IT administrators can easily connect Zimbra to their existing unified communications solution or extend Zimbra to work with other third-party unified communication solutions.
Streamlined Administration for Lower TCO
Designed for virtualization, Zimbra delivers faster provisioning and easier administration with built-in support for high availability, disaster recovery, backup and lifecycle management using vSphere. Zimbra simplifies these critical functions through an easy-to-use, web-based administration console that enables administrators to easily access the applications anywhere, anytime and manage access and policies for a diverse set of users. Zimbra also supports hierarchical storage management, optimizing storage costs through tiered storage, and multi-tenancy that enables service providers to cost-effectively support a variety of businesses in a hosted environment. Additionally, Zimbra’s high-scalability and reduced administration time (33% less than Microsoft Exchange) enables IT to manage email and collaboration with fewer resources, lower costs and less risk—in the cloud or on-premises.
