What was the impetus for the Cloud Zimbra – Google Coexistence Solution?

G Suite Free Edition is counting down the days it will remain free for businesses, and organizations across the world. Google Cloud is all set to shelf the product, which is just a natural consequence of their decision to block all new sign-ups after December 2012.

So, what does it mean for you as a G Suite Free Legacy Edition user? Well, you have two options. The first one is presented by Google Cloud itself: you can choose to upgrade to the paid Google Workspace Solution. If you have the budget for it and feel that Google’s mailing and productivity tool is too necessary a part of your day-to-day operations, you may very well choose this option.

However, if there is a budget constraint and only a handful of your key employees may need a premium subscription while the remaining users can be given non–google mailing solution, then Logix has Cloud Zimbra – Google Workspace Coexistence to offer.

The solution to this puzzle

Our Cloud Zimbra – Google Workspace coexistence solution is a hybridized solution which allows you to classify your mailing and productivity tools as per your organizational needs. Keep your key users on G Suite while others shift to Cloud Zimbra Suite, which is more economical and a potent mailing and collaboration tool.

Milestones for you as a G Suite Free Edition user

Whether to opt for the G Suite alternative or go for the paid Google Workspace subscription is totally up to you, your requirements, and your procurement budgets. However, Google has set in motion a plan to convert all free users to premium ones. So, keep in mind the following dates:

Since the 1st of May 2022, Google will have automatically elevated your privileges to the paid Google Workspace plan.

After that, Google will let you use the new Workspace solution free of cost for 60 days.

By 1st of July 2022, you will need to provide your billing details so Google can officially onboard you to the solution. If you choose not to shift, you will lose all access to your account July onwards.

And what is the date to shift to the G Suite alternative by Logix? Well, you can do that even today! Simply reach out to us to get started on the provisioning.
