When to use

Zentyal Development Edition IS ONLY recommended when:

  1. You are sure that official support will never be needed.
  2. Your organization has enough resources and skills to maintain the deployment, build the necessary testing environments and to carry out troubleshooting, bugfixing tasks and frequent version upgrades.
  3. The usage of commercially supported software is not mandatory at your organization.
  4. Your deployment is not critical and downtime is not an issue.

In any other case, evaluate using the commercial edition instead.
