Zentyal Announces Zentyal 3.0

Sep 20, 2012

The Zentyal Development Team releases Zentyal 3.0, a major release of its Linux small business server.

According to the announcement, Zentyal aims to provide small and medium businesses with “professional, reliable, and secure network infrastructure solutions, that are both easy to use and affordable.”

Zentyal 3.0 includes Samba4 integration, making the Zentyal server a full replacement for the Windows Server Active Directory. From now on, Zentyal server will use protocols to manage users, permissions, and security policies that are fully compatible with any Windows server and Windows desktop.

This release also features a new Single Sign-On feature, based on Kerberos open source software. This feature removes the need for users to enter credentials every time they wants to access network services such as email, file sharing, or browse the Internet through a proxy. Because of Samba4 integration, this feature works out of the box for Windows desktops.

Zentyal 3.0 includes major performance and usability improvements along with new features such as a UPS module, a Thin Clients module, and a new Master-Slave architecture. Other modules including HTTP Proxy, firewall, and Zarafa collaboration platform have been updated. Zentyal 3.0 version is based on the latest Ubuntu Server LTS edition (12.04). Zentyal 3.0 is now available for download.
