What's Zephyr and Zephyr Enterprise?
Zephyr is a testing system for organizing and monitoring end-to-end testing, which leads to higher quality software. One of its primary features is the ability to generate test cases according to product versions and features.
If you're an Agile team seeking to begin using Jira for test management, Zephyr Squad is a way to go. Zephyr Enterprise, on the other hand, is a separate Zephyr installation that doesn't need a JIRA installation, and it's ideal for bringing together different Jira instances used by teams using complicated Agile/Waterfall methodologies.
Besides these, it's Zephyr for JIRA, which is a plugin for JIRA that adds Zephyr capabilities and features to a JIRA-centric workflow.
