VMworld Technology Preview: Project Octopus

By | August 30, 2011
As we continue in our mission to develop technologies and infrastructure that improve the way people work in this post-PC era, we are previewing at VMworld Las Vegas a new file sharing app – Project Octopus – that advances our vision for combining end-user freedom with IT control. Project Octopus will enable users to access files from any device and share them with people both inside (other colleagues) and outside (vendors, customers, partners) their companies in a completely safe and secure way.  Additionally, IT leaders will have control to apply access and security policies and intelligently manage data that is old or out of date. In our research, we found that 80 percent of files in a collaboration system are not accessed after more than two years. Octopus will automatically identify these orphaned files, warn their owners, and if it never hears back, it expires those files and deletes them. Project Octopus promises to be super easy to deploy; it plugs in to your existing infrastructure and will come with a wide range of extensibility options that can integrate with your existing business applications. Also Octopus will work with other products within the VMware End-user Computing portfolio including VMware Zimbra, VMware View, VMware Horizon and Project AppBlast.… Read more »

By | January 11, 2011
Zimbra partner Irontec of Spain recently posted a new Zimlet integration for SugarCRM in the Zimbra Gallery called "zSugar".  This is allows end users to attach email correspondences to an Account, Contact, Opportunity or Project. Feel free to try it out and provide your feedback, the Irontec team has deployed this with several customers already and plans on releasing an RC candidate shortly.  (Note the screen capture on the right is Spanish, but the UI is localized in English and Catalan as well).
