What's New

New Realtime Backup - 6 restore options: No data loss during backup, and new de-duplication technology results in up to 50% saving on storage space for backups.
New Mobile Sync - All new mobile sync lets users synchronize Zimbra shared items on their mobile devices, or ActiveSync compatible applications. Please read upgrade documentation before enabling Zimbra's new mobile sync.
New HSM & Volume Management - Reduce your current Zimbra storage by up to 50% for an enormous cost savings.
Improved, easy-to-use Delegated Admin - Create a delegated admin in minutes, and enjoy increased reporting functionality and more CLI commands.
Zimbra Drive - Improves file sync and share with the addition of an ownCloud/nextCloud server.
Zimbra Chat - Peer-to-peer chat, buddy management and presence built-into Zimbra.
(BETA) Decoupled IMAP Service - Improves email reliability and SLAs by optionally deploying IMAP as a separate service.
(BETA) Ephemeral Data Store - Improves service reliability and SLAs by moving ephemeral data out of LDAP and into SSDB.

NOTE: Beta features should not be installed and are not supported on production systems. Beta modules have been provided for evaluation in lab environments only.
