NEW POLL: What OS port should be next?

Postby dual_prophet » Wed Jul 12, 2006 12:09 am

Greetings,
I appreciate the reply in the 64bit thread, although it's locked so I can't reply.
The lack of priority for 64bit systems amazes me. Almost every new server we build for clients is 64bit, and it's been that way for over a year. I think there has been a major underestimation of the size of the 64bit market, which I don't know how you do your research (please tell me its more than a poll & thread), but it's growing at a faster than moore's law pace.
Just think about the fact that it's a "Web 2.0" application that runs on only "Web 1.0" hardware.

We follow the $$$. When there is critical mass of $$$ to support the costs of supporting/testing another OS port then it will be completed. As you see the most recent dev release has 64bit support on RedHat. So technically it works. Just depends on the customer demand for when we'll certify it for use. If your interested please drop a note to our sales@zimbra.com address. They can take your info and deal size etc and place you on a list so you can be notified as soon as we release it.

Just wondering if there is any timeline on the board for a SLES10/SUSE10.1 release? I'm currently running on SUSE10, but would prefer to run on newer and don't want to hack incase something untoward happens.

Thanks marcmarc.
Shame it can't be sooner, although I'd rather wait and have it working 100%.

Having Zimbra on SLES10 would be great!

I would also like to add a vote for an official CentOS port.

It is so similar to RH anyway, would this also mean official support for Zimbra on CentOS though?

THere's no way we can do a supported port for an unsupported OS - that would, by default, mean that we had to support the OS, too. The RHEL4 version runs on CentOS, but it's still not a good idea.
If your mail is important to you, you should have it on a supported platform. If it's not, then why would you be any more willing to pay for our support than you are for RedHat's?

So you should delete lots of suggested OSes in the poll list to end up with:
  • Mandriva (Corporate only)

  • Ubuntu

  • Solaris
