ZEG, which stands for "Zero Effort Groupware", is a virtual appliance of SOGo intended to provide a complete out-of-the-box testing environment. SOGo is a collaboration suite (or groupware) with speed and scalability in mind. It offers calendaring, address book management, and a full-featured Webmail client along with resource sharing and permission handling. It also makes use of documented standards (CalDAV, CardDAV and GroupDAV, vCard, and vCalendar/iCalendar) and thereby enables the use of many clients and the reuse of any existing infrastructure. The appliance is prepared to be imported in VirtualBox but can also used in VMWare.
SOGo is a very fast and scalable modern collaboration suite (or groupware). It offers calendaring, address book management, and a full-featured Webmail client along with resource sharing and permission handling. It also makes use of documented standards (IMAP, CalDAV, CardDAV, etc.) and thereby provides native connectivity (without plugins) to many clients such as Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, the iPhone, Mozilla Lightning, and a plethora of mobile devices via SyncML. It can reuse any existing email and database infrastructure, avoiding long hours of site restructuring.
Scalable OGo (SOGo in short) is a groupware server built around the SOPE application server. Unlike OGo, it is focused on scalability instead of depth in functionality. The Web interface uses human-readable URLs and can be accessed according to REST Web service ideas. Notably, it requires no server side session at all. The server stores all internal data in the iCalendar format, and therefore has no data model inconsistencies with native clients. It easily connects using GroupDAV connectors.
