The documentation for the eXo Platform has something to say about the minimum requirements. The VM image seems just too weakly preconfigured with 1GB RAM, whereas the manual says: 4GB physical RAM, at least 1GB free for JVM's max heap memory
Full featured. Fairly fast. Blows the socks on anythng else. Phenominal user experinence. Did a bit of research on custom skins and that will be fairly advanced to do.
eXo is good , wonderful and learning platform, that would help us to learn more and more things. And Excellent open source Enterprise Social Platform. Good job eXo.
I tried the two PVs on Amazon and they booted up, but didn't start.
then I gave the HVM a shot and it worked.
After that, installation went smoothly and in a couple of hours I had my intranet going.
The interface is intuitive, and functionality appears to be quite extensible.
Major bug: in the current version, the mobile app's "gadgets" which includes calendaring, a must-have feature for us, are not working. On their site's forum it says that it is something that will be fixed in the next release, so that makes me worry a lot.
Basic mobile app functionality as comments and documents work ok, but the feeling is that you are using a stunted product on the mobile side.
Web functionality works, as far as I can tell after a day's tests, 100%
Well designed platform. Lot of features out-of-the-box and great add-ons to add on top of them. It's open source and thus can be extended at will.
