VMWare, Zimbra and the Virtualized Software Stack

,----[ Quote ]
| VMWare appears to be positioning itself to 
| provide the virtualized or cloud-based 
| alternative to Oracle, Microsoft and IBM. 
| This is a very interesting approach, and it 
| will be interesting to see it play out over 
| time. With Oracle and IBM taking a more 
| systems-centric approach, meaning they are 
| both providing the storage, computing and 
| software stacks in the form of a system, this 
| leaves Oracleâs traditional hardware partners 
| out in the cold (HP, Dell, EMC, Netapp, etc.) 
| along with budding potential partner Cisco. 
| VMWare may envision themselves providing the 
| Linux-based alternative to Microsoft in this 
| game of strategic positioning.
