    Default Can I use my laptop for Zimbra

    Hello,

    As I said, I am from INDIA, and There is huge power problem here. What I was planning, is whether I can run the ZCS on my Laptop.

    The configuration is :
    HP NX 5000 Business Notebook.
    Intel Centrino 1.5 Ghz.
    256MB RAM
    30 Gig HDD
    and all other things are normal.

    I get a backup of around 5-6 Hours in my laptop and have a big UPS too.. so I was wondering if Its feasible to run it on a Laptop..

    I know the performance will be slow, but I am harly expecting many users connecting concurrently.

    My Net connection is 256kbps.

    Awaiting your reply

    Sure you could but would your laptop be running 100% of the time ?? And you could still go with more memory if you intend to use your laptop for development work.

    If you have a big UPS why can't you use a proper server?

    I ran production on a laptop but you REALLY need as much RAM as you can cram into your system, I had several users but I was barely getting by with 1GB of RAM. The Hard drive is something else to consider, email is very disk intensive and most laptop hard drives are slower than full size drives and may not last with all the I/O they have to go through.

    In a pinch you can get by with your laptop but if your planning something long term you might be better off with a headless cheap box and faith in your UPS
