I've used Workspace extensively in-house and have zero interest in migrating that to Samepage.


The FAQ says:

"Kerio Workspace 2.1 is the last major version release of this product line. Kerio Workspace 2.1 will only be available as an upgrade for users with a current Starter Edition or Commercial license. We will maintain version 2.1 with service releases and patches as needed for 1 year from its end of life announcement."

As I currently have Workspace running on a Mac, I assume the above means that I won't be able to move that to the VMWare appliance version to insulate myself from demise due to OS upgrade incompatibility down the line?

Tony, you can install in Linux and move your stuff over with rsync. I just did that with 2.1 from CentOS 5.8 to CentOS 6.3 and it works fine.

Yeah, but what about the "will only be available as an upgrade for users" part?

I guess we upgrade it until there are no more upgrades? I'm not following you here. Sorry.

They seem to be saying that I can't download and license another copy - that I can only upgrade what already exists?

Ah, that is correct. I guess we cannot add users either.

We use workspace internally and I'm not sure what to migrate it to. Thinking about Apple's wiki however we also became Office365 partners for a client of ours that needed Exchange.

We just moved to WorkSpace from Apple's Wiki. We were running Apple's wiki on 10.6 server.

Apple's wiki, whilst easy to edit/create pages, had a number of significant issues for us. The biggest problems for us were getting privileges/permissions set correctly, and the fact that once something is published it's very difficult to move or reorganize it.

WorkSpace is a much friendlier product.

Thanks Fishtech, I knew there were some reasons we moved to workspace from Apple's wiki. I'm not in a huge hurry to move from workspace as it is a great product that does what we need. I'm just worried about using it moving forward once we need to add users or something breaks.

Yes, Workspace is working well for us also.

I am using Starter Edition and I appreciate the 'heads-up' Kerio gave of a full year of maintenance following the EOL announcement. I'm planning to use at least until Jan 2014, and probably beyond so long as no Mac OSX updates break anything. That's a lot of time.

My only concern is breaking the 10Gb limit.

A lot of people seems to be stressing in the forums. I am fortunate that my installation allows me to hold off thinking about this until beyond Jan 2014 (so long as we do not break beyond 10GB).

I am looking forward to the 2.1 release.

Cheers,

ft.

pcunix, I think you can move it if you can find the installer. I would imagine you can keep the same license. Even if you can't find the installer, I'd be willing to bet you can get that from kerio support I think the point is that no new licenses will be issued.

Now that I think of it, usually a "patch" is the full install anyway... I think it's just a matter of whether you have a license.

We can think and hope all we want, but I wish Kerio would make this clear.

Just download 2.1 and run the installer on a test machine. You'll find out quickly.

Not really. What I might be able to do now, I or my customers might not be able to do later.

well, for what it's worth I just downloaded, installed and registered a copy for the 10GB free version on a test computer.
