Hi.

I see Zextras will launch the new Carbonio project. I guess it'll be based on Zimbra. Can you give some more info ? Will Carbonio CE will be equivalent to Zimbra OSE, and Carbonio Enterprise to Zimbra + Zextras suite ?

Will there be an easy migration path from Zimbra to Carbonio ?

 

Regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Zextras Carbonio is a stand-alone product, independent from Zimbra. It uses a part of the Zimbra code, as well as other third-party software parts (Postfix, MariaDB, LDAP).

It comes in two different versions to address different needs:

  • Zextras Carbonio
  • Zextras Carbonio CE

Zextras Carbonio CE, the open-source and free product, is suited for small infrastructure, but it is a complete product, which offers not only e-mail and calendar features, but also extra communication and collaboration features.

Zextras Carbonio, on the other hand, offers much more capabilities for communication and collaboration (e.g. video conference), and more powerful admin-side features, as it is designed for larger infrastructure. Soon we will publish more information about the complete set of features of the two products.

With both products, you have absolute sovereignty over your data.

Migration is also possible and we will soon publish more information on the process in our community.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the CE version has to offer, it's a plus that we'll be able to migrate to that version. 🙂 With the imminent 'death' of CentOS will we be able to install on other distributions such as RockyLinux etc.....?

Hi @phoenix,

Yes. Besides the most used distributions in a production server (Ubuntu, RedHat, and CentOS) that are already supported, there is also a plan to support RockyLinux in the future.

Hi @arman. If the above statement is true, wouldn't Carbonio need to be licensed with something compatible with GPLv2 (to make use of the Zimbra code)? What is the license for Carbonio?

Hi @jimp, Carbonio CE project will handle multiple OSI licenses for different packages to respect the original license form the 3rd part components we are including.

That said all the Zextras Code in Carbonio CE is AGPL v.3 and the non-code part is CC

Hi @bulletxt .

Yes Carbonio and Carbonio CE will include both a DAV server (CalDav/CardDav) and CBPolicyD among the others.
