Alfresco Software announced the availability of Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2, the latest version of its enterprise content management (ECM) product. With this release, Alfresco enables cloud-based deployments, streamlines email management and archiving and enhances team-based content collaboration.  Alfresco supports multi-tenancy, a component of multi-company cloud implementations that maximizes use of hardware and simplifies administration of multiple instances of Alfresco. Alfresco now supports multiple deployment options from traditional on-premise to full cloud deployment, ranging from a simple AMI to a fully-configured, fault-tolerant and load-balanced Alfresco cluster. The Alfresco open source RM module (available in February 2010 via the Alfresco Enterprise Subscription as a separate module) will enable companies to manage all document content with retention ranging from lightweight to 5015.2-compliant in a single repository, at a fraction of the cost of traditional RM solution. Transparent IMAP standard protocol support provides full access to repository services without a client install and can be accessed from mobile devices. Enhancements to Alfresco Share make it easier for teams to collaborate and work together, extending team collaboration from the extranet environment into the cloud through scalable moderated sites, group based site membership. New dashboard features, such as image galleries, a new forms engine, and activities filters make it easier for end users to configure project portals. Also, WCM authoring and deployment performance increases to improve deployment of Web site content to external web sites through parallel Web site deployment and publishing are included. New open and flexible deployment architecture makes it simpler to deploy content to multiple delivery environments and allows easier integration into the web delivery tier. Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2 is immediately available for all existing Enterprise Subscription Customers.
