The education market is characterized by campuses with large non-Windows desktop populations, the need for one collaboration platform to span highly fragmented departments, plus requirements to simplify administration and integrate directly with other campus platforms (Xythos, Sakai, SunGard, BlackBoard, and more).

Zimbra Collaboration Server (ZCS) is deployed by more than 500 universities in higher education and K-12 districts today with over 2 million paid mailboxes because it can unify campuses and provide either on-premises and/or outsourced hosted email solutions for students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
