The city of Limerick, located in mid-west Ireland and, which at a population of about 110,000, is that country’s third largest city, has chosen Zentyal to migrate to an open source email solution.
Zentyal is an open source solutions provider based in Zaragoza, Spain. Zentyal is the company’s main software offering, a server platform based on Ubuntu.
The migration of the email system to Zentyal’s is part of a much larger process that will see most of the city’s IT infrastructure move to open source solutions.
From the press release:
Zentyal was chosen as the technology solution because it integrated all the necessary functionality from Active Directory synchronization, Postfix and Zarafa as mail stack to Samba as file and printer sharing. It also integrated with the existing Microsoft infrastructure, allowing seamless and phased migration of the email services, with no disruption to the users: small teams were gradually transferred to the new email solution while the rest kept working within the existing environments.
