Latest version of one of the world’s most popular email platforms now available as hosted service
Newark, CA – June 13, 2011 – SaaShost (www.saashost.net), a leading SaaS (Software as a Service) provider of enterprise-class business applications, announced today that VMware’s Zimbra 7.1, released by Zimbra in April, is already available as a hosted service from SaaShost.net.
According to Zimbra, the 7.1 version is more than just a maintenance release. “We’ve done some important plumbing to set the stage for a few new features coming later in the year as well as added internationalization enhancements.” Zimbra noted that S/MIME encryption and support for smartcard authentication are included in those features.
SaaShost.net stands apart from the competition with a SaaS delivery platform that has unique integrated features and services. SaaShost.net is the only hosted services provider that offers both Microsoft Exchange and Zimbra with supported migration between the two services, and couples those services with NotifySync. The company also offers automated integration between Microsoft Exchange and Global Relay, and other features that enable 3rd party application integrations that increase the power and productivity of its customer’s SaaS services.
Productivity, openness and manageability are central to the list of benefits delivered to end users by VMware’s Zimbra 7.0 release and the new ZCS 7.1 version. The upgrade has enhanced the feature-rich email and collaboration solution, allowing new data sharing functionality, expanded calendaring and search, as well as increased management ability for end-users.
The platform has been optimized for both casual and power users in the 7.1 update, with new capabilities in the Zimbra Web Client that improve the "share more, send less" concept embodied in the platform. New capabilities in Hosted VMware Zimbra version 7 include:
* New Scheduling Wizard and other Calendar enhancements
* Self-Restore Deleted Items
* Briefcase File Versioning and Check In/Check Out Control
* GAL (Global Address List) People Search
* Email and SMS Event Reminders
* Zimbra Connector for Microsoft Outlook 2010
* Webex Integration
* Popular Zimlets readily installed
* ...and many more
