Morning all.. sorry for making a new post on this.
I am still in the processing of pointing out to the big guys at my company why we should use zimbra over outlook.
We are a small company and have been using zimbra FOSS for alittle over a year i believe before i made the switch to the demo NE edition. I switched to the NE edition mainly for an easy backup process and also Attachment search, HTML attachment rendering, Storage management and Outlook/MAPI sync.
Now am i an odd spot. Even thou i was instructed by management to upgrade to the NE demo, the consultant (he knows not one $$$$ about linux nor opensource application )my company hired has been pushing for us to use MS exchange. Now thanks to Aaron Rosenthal (of Special applied Intelligence and MMORSE of Zimbra) i have the ZCS Exchange product comparison guide and i have a bit more knownledge of Zimbra.
Over the years i have worked with Exchange and other high end microsoft products and have been greatly not happy with a high level of availability of exchange aka UPTIME and easy of recovery incase of software or system failure..
I am more a practical person who would give examples of situations where MS exchange isnt applicable. But in this scenario they want have facts about why we should go zimbra and not exchange.
Does any have a document with this or does zimbra sales department have a well document point list that would point out the strengths of zimbra and at what it beats exchange at.
