    Default Does the new ZCA work on Citrix XenServer

    Hi All,

    Before I ask the question, let me apologize to VMW, yes I know you have geared ZCA to VMW, but, I have shovel loads of full blown Citrix boxes, and I do not know (or have even seen a crosgrade offer for citrix > VMW), so sorry

    OK, so now the question, have Citrix XEN Essential servers, from what I read and could be wrong, I am assuming ZCA will only work on VMW?

    The ZCA is the best suit for us, we only have 8 bods and this will be for internal use, rather than a service, the full blown ZCS with mobile and archiving is just not economical for under 25 users. (yes I know archiving is not in ZCA, but, at least mobile is )

    ZIM will you add archiving as an option to ZCA, that or, will you make a smaller ZCS for 10 users with all the bells and whistles?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    As far as I know, ZCA is made for VMware (vSphere)...
    It includes several VMware-only features.

    If you want to use XenServer (or any other virtualization solution), you have to make you own appliance.

    Hmm thought as much, just a shame they do not do a 10 user license that can be installed in the same manner and support the same products, ie. mobile devices.

    Sorry no Xen, but if you look at http://buy.zimbra.com you'll be pleasantly surprised to fine a 10 user license.

    Brian, it could be me (and I am grateful for your reply) but, the ZCS is either 15/25 not 10.

    I do not mind paying for a 10 user appliance if it were to support xen or some other virtulization rather than just vmware (or am I missing something)?

    Yes that's correct, the Appliance is VMware only with the 10 User free licence.

    So I thought, ok, lets pop along to VMWare and see what or whom they suggest as good tier 1 providers, there were 4 on the page, 2 I had never heard of Tata and someone else, filled out the tata form, and am still waiting for a response. Went to the other one i thought "in for a penny in for a pound" to test, their site just doesnt load.

    So at that point, gave up as stumped, if the 4 companies that VMware suggest, 2 of which are not know by me, and 2 of which 1 (defo) cant be a*sed to reply to get the money from me (the cloud VMW site was giving away free 30 day trial which is what i went for) then it doesnt hold up much hope.

    The 25 user is just too much for someone whom has 8 "b*tt*ms" on seats and a total waste.

    I can see why they did it, to sell more VMW seats basically, but, I cant put my business with anything except a tier 1 provider.

    Any thoughts of a decent and 100% uptime tier 1 provider?
