Zimbra Transition to VMware is Complete

It’s official–  Zimbra is now a part of VMware.

I Heart VMwareAs we settle into our new digs in Palo Alto, you can bet we remain as focused as ever on building and supporting the best open source email and collaboration software for our community, customers and partners. We’re committed to our mission to set the standard for Web-based collaboration and to VMware’s overall mission to simplify IT.

We’re excited to join VMware’s Cloud Services organization, helping to meet increasing customer demand for more public and private on-premises cloud computing services delivered through VMware’s innovative virtualization platform. Zimbra’s modular architecture and APIs make it ideal for virtualization, and for offering cloud-based email and collaboration services.

With VMware’s support, we’re looking forward to accelerating our product roadmap, optimizing Zimbra products for VMware’s vSphere cloud infrastructure, and continuing to build on the record growth that has allowed us to reach more than 55 million paid mailboxes in just five years.

Here’s to Zimbra and VMware!

    Does this mean you will quickly release many of the new features which were only waiting for this status of not being part of Yahoo-Microsoft any more?

    I’m eagerly waiting for new release of Zimbra Desktop among others. Beta v1.1 never saw the light..

    Oh, and better communicated and easier to implement strategy for non-official languages/tanslations such as Finnish is VERY important, too.

    Keep up the excellent work!
