Google Apps open its new infrastructure for early adopters! who’ll now be able to tap into many new Google services such as Blogger, Reader, Google Voice and calling-in-Gmail (US only), Picasa Web Albums, AdWords and iGoogle beyond the core suite of messaging and collaboration apps from their Google Apps accounts.
Here’re the functionality that early adopters won’t see before new infrastructure is feature-complete:
- Adminis don’t yet have ability to turn off access to any of these additional services as they can today for apps in the core suite.
- A few apps aren’ compatible with new infrastructure at this time including Google Health, PowerMeter, YouTube, Web History, Buzz and Profiles.
- Additional apps beyond the core suite aren’t covered by Google Enterprise support or 99.9% uptime guarantee.
- Finally, Apps users who’ve created personal Google Accounts based on their organization’s Google Apps email addresses, will need to rename these “conflicting accounts” during the transition process.
So…if you understand the limitations and would like to transition users to new infrastructure, sign in to control panel, and meet other early adopter eligibility criteria.
