Zextras creates a multitenancy architecture for Zimbra OSE mail server and allows you to assign privileges to administrators of closed user groups to manage their domains, accounts, access, quotas, and settings. This model helps to implement the solution both for large companies and organizations with a network of departments or branches and for service providers who can provide SaaS services. Each domain can be managed by different delegated admins. All actions of administrators are logged with the ability to receive reports on their activities.
Zextras creates corporate repositories for both the system and each user. This helps build a flexible data storage policy. Information can be stored using Zextras Powerstore software hierarchical storages with prioritization of data processing and storage in accordance with the configured policies.
