VMWare is planning on taking on Microsoft….

The Var Guy is reporting a follow up on VMWare’s plans to use Zimbra, the open Source E-mail/Groupware solution they purchased from Yahoo in January.  What is being discussed and reported is that VMWare will begin selling and supporting Applicances with the opensource software installed and configured.  They will not be starting their own hosting option but instead rely on the over 500 existing VMWare hosting focused companies.  The goal of this is go directly after Microsofts E-Mail product Exchange.  This should be interesting to watch.
