It is available at vmware.com/appliances/directory/121903/.
This new offering allows organizations to instantly preview Kerio MailServer features from a browser. Users can evaluate Kerio’s WebMail and the web administration, which allows them to create and configure users, groups, and aliases in the test domain. With the new App On Demand from VMware, evaluators have a full hour to add contacts and calendar events in Kerio’s WebMail and even send test messages to newly created mailboxes without having to download or install the product.
“We are seeing a high level of interest and usage in the VMware VAM App on Demand beta from our partners, users, and the community because it enables simplified delivery and use of software applications through the cloud,” said Wendy Perilli, director, product marketing, VMware. “We are excited to include Kerio MailServer as part of the beta roll-out of App on Demand, and we expect users will be excited to evaluate this software without the hardware provisioning and setup required with traditional proof of concepts.”
“We are honored to be one of the first appliances available with VMware’s new App on Demand product,” said James Gudeli, vice president of Business Development for Kerio Technologies. “This new innovative environment makes it easy to evaluate software quickly with no resources, which helps further reduce the cost of deploying new technologies.”
