July 4th will bring a Google Apps migration to Colorado county

| The process of migrating data has been

| return to work on Tuesday after the long 
| weekend, their e-mail and calendaring will 
| no longer be on a Novell GroupWise client, 
| but on Google Apps. 


Top SA engineering firm turns to Mimecast for rock solid e-mail

| The BKS Group had moved its 650 e-mail 
| users from Novell's GroupWise to Microsoft 
| Exchange Server during 2007, and was 
| finding the built-in security not up to 
| the task. The team has the mammoth duty of 
| supporting as many as 350 mobile users at 
| any one time, either travelling, or based 
| on-site for large projects. This mobility 
| posed additional e-mail availability 
| issues. Off-site staff were either 
| connecting in via fixed-line VPN from the 
| site network, or dialling up via 3G mobile 
| connections to a dedicated BKS Group 
| access point (APN).

| GroupWise and Microsoft Exchange, 80 
| systems and 180 domains. It chose Googleâs 
| solution after a six-month trial with 700 
| users across the company in March 2009.

Would A VMware Acquisition Of Novell Make Sense?

,----[ Quote ]
| There are rumors afoot that VMware is among
| the companies bidding to acquire Novell.
| Why would the virtualization technology
| giant be interested in Novell, best known
| as the purveyor of SUSE Linux?
| Two answers: âRed Hatâ and âcloud
| management.â
| First, a recap. Back in March Novell
| rejected an unsolicited $2 billion buyout
| offer from investment firm Elliott
| Associates. But the companyâs board at the
| time announced an effort to âmaximize
| shareholder valueâ and itâs been an open
| secret Novell is up for sale to the highest
| bidder.
| So why VMware? With virtualization widely
| seen as a first step to cloud computing,
| VMware has been positioning itself as a
| supplier of automation and management
| technologies for building cloud computing
| infrastructures. In doing so, itâs joining
| a rapidly growing list of software vendors
| including startups like AppDynamics and
| established companies like CA and Novell in
| offering cloud management tools.
| Would A VMware Acquisition Of Novell Make
| Sense?
