Lamar University меняет Exchange на Zimbra

В дополнение к предыдущему – еще один похожий пример внедрения Zimbra Collaboration Suite в системе образования. Lamar University внедряет Zimbra вместо Exchange и системы собственной разработки:

In addition to cost savings, this agreement will result in substantial improvements in the e-mail and calendar functionality for all users, said Michael Dobe, associate vice president for information technology at Lamar. Merit is a nonprofit consortium that has been serving the education community for more than 42 years.

The Merit Mail client is based on the Zimbra Collaboration Suite and it will replace the two primary e-mail systems on campus, myLAMAR and Exchange. Students, faculty and staff will keep their current e-mail addresses and e-mail will be migrated to the new system, Dobe said.

Individuals using Microsoft Exchange will find the Merit Mail system very familiar, but will enjoy added features and flexibility. For those upgrading from the myLAMAR e-mail system, it will be a quantum leap, Dobe said.

"In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused us to shut down e-mail for all our users," Dobe said. "We decided immediately thereafter to replace our in-house student e-mail system and faculty and staff Exchange system with a new campus-wide outsourced e-mail solution that would assure business continuance, should there be a similar incident in the future."
