Zarafa currently offers the Z-Admin appliances in two different flavors for demo purposes of the Zarafa Collaboration Platform.

The Z-Admin Appliance is a VMware (or Virtualbox) appliance which includes the web-based admin GUI Z-Admin and the full Zarafa Collaboration Platform. These appliances include Zarafa version 7 and are based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. They can be downloaded on http://www.zarafa.com/content/virtual-appliance

Please note that while Z-Admin offers an easy to use interface, it is not (yet) suitable for advanced setups (i.e. no support for multi-server and multi-tenancy).
