Kolab 3 Now Available: Freedom and Collaboration in the Cloud
The new major version of the Kolab Groupware Solution has been released today.
Version 3 of the proven groupware solution includes many benefits for users
who are looking for an intuitive and effective way of collaborating through
the cloud, wherever they may be.
The users of the hundreds of thousands of Roundcube installations will feel
right at home in Kolab, because they have effectively been enjoying a sneak
preview of the new Kolab Web Frontend, which has driven much of the Roundcube
releases in the past years. But Roundcube is only one of the Open Source
technologies that Kolab Systems has helped advance as part of their ongoing
development effort to provide a trustworthy groupware experience that truly
deserves being called open.
Bring Your Own Device complements the web client: There is now full support
for mobile productivity on the iPhone, iPad, Android or any of the other
modern mobile platforms. Access to all is available on the road wherever you
are even if you did not bring your laptop.
The award winning architecture of Kolab has been improved further and taken to
the next level: Private Cloud, Corporate Cloud, Public Cloud or just plain
Enterprise Server? Kolab can do it all, with or without additional middleware.
All functional components can be scaled separately based on current
requirements. This way Kolab is highly resource effective and elastic, with
flexible reactions scaling up and down that so far have not met their limit:
The dream of every ISP or large corporation. High-availability as well as
disaster recovery is also easily implemented with Kolab technology, including
support from Kolab Systems.
Professional users will love the new web administration front-end. Extremely
powerful and fully extensible it is making use of the new server configuration
API. This API allows configuration through any kind of administrative
infrastructure and provides unlimited integration options. This makes Kolab
particularly useful for ISPs who want to provide the Kolab experience to their
“Kolab has been breaking new ground from day one. With version 3 we have built
further upon the principles of always incorporating the best technologies and
pushing them further, becoming part of the overall drive to excellence in this
new, open world of software freedom,” says Georg Greve, Kolab Systems CEO. “If
you are looking for a groupware solution you can trust with your data, hosted
under your control, with all the benefits of the cloud, but none of the
dangers, we would be happy to provide you with the professional services such
a scenario requires.”
