Ah, CyberWeek – the week after Thanksgiving, when office workers everywhere hide online shopping sites behind spreadsheets when someone walks by their desk.
Good news: this year you can put those online shopping skills to work for your business. VMware is offering a CyberWeek promotion on Zimbra 8 – the latest version of the Zimbra Collaboration Server.
It’s the real deal
On Wednesday, November 28th to Friday, November 30th you can save 30% on up to 500 mailboxes of VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server Standard Edition. This is the full, enterprise-grade email and collaboration server.
The promotion applies to the latest version, Zimbra 8. It’s got everything you need, including:
- A ‘smart’ mailbox for mobile and remote users
- Enterprise Calendaring with scheduling suggestions for room and time
- Integration with unified communications platforms for voicemail, IM and web conferencing
- Security features like email encryption
- Simplified administration with integrated high-availability, backup and disaster recovery

Get up and running quickly with the VMware Zimbra software appliance
Zimbra 8 also offers a software virtual appliance for fast, simplified deployment and setup, management and operations. No need to install and maintain the operating system, middleware, antivirus, anti-spam software or Zimbra. The appliance is a preconfigured and optimized software stack with security controls and a single lifecycle management policy that enables anyone to easily deliver Zimbra-as-a-service in a private or public cloud.
The savings keep on coming
The 30% discount is a nice start, but the real savings accrue over time. Zimbra has one of the lowest total costs of ownership (TCO) of any email server. (See Reduce your Email TCO.)
