How Kolab Meet and integrated collaborative editing boosted my Christmas preparations

Posted on: November 12th, 2021 by

And.. its around the corner again – Christmas!

Every year it is a very special time for me and my family. The days get shorter, everyone slows down and reflects on the busy year at home with cups of tea and hot chocolate on the couch, covered in a warm blanket.

At the same time it means Christmas preparations. We are a big family with more than 56 members spread over different cities and countries, gathering each year on different locations to enjoy the Christmas days together. Now the cozy moments on the edge of the commencing winter start to get hectic. Dinner plans have to be made, wish lists to be exchanged and discussed, invitations & Christmas cards have to be designed.

Kolab Meet beta – The story so far..

Posted on: May 4th, 2021 by

Earlier this year we wrote here on this blog about our new added feature: ‘Kolab Meet’ The voice & video conferencing tool. We explained how this tool was still in beta, but that all users of kolab Now (with full groupware subscriptions) could gain access to the tool, and how it was used.

Our October Silence?

Posted on: November 7th, 2018 by

Hi there,

I just wanted to provide you with a quick note that our blog roll’s “October silence” is nothing but just that. Some of us became a father to a son, have needed to deal with some citizen/resident paperwork, some of us choose to entertain the fresh snowfall way up the Alps, others took some vacation time, and such and so forth.

In the all-work-no-play area, I think we’ve figured out webmail decryption/signing, a responsive skin to be made available to mainstream Kolab Now, new exciting service venture definitions even though still under development, and we have now been able to deal with our midterm election anxiety (albeit November 25th could incur some implications domestically).

Incident Report: Thursday, 20:25 – Friday 01:15 UTC

Posted on: September 21st, 2018 by

Last night, a failure in the storage layer caused most of our services to be unavailable. In the week before, we replaced a failed hard drive. In the week before that, a so-called Virtual Fabric Adapter failed, causing a hypervisor to shut itself off. Since the most recent incident was the more serious downtime, that’s what we’ll start our reporting on.
