Scalar Uses VMware To Snag 60,000 Mailboxes

Scalar Decisions is a Canada-based cloud integrator that just made a major deal. First, some background: Scalar has expertise in Zimbra, an online e-mail and collaboration tool that competes with Microsoft Exchange. VMware, seeing an opening, bought Zimbra and now offers it to its partners such as Scalar.

Scalar just entered a deal in which the University of Guelph in Ontario will move some 60,000 mailboxes from on-premise servers, also based on Zimbra, to the cloud, eh. Before the deal could be struck, Zimbra had to assuage the university's serious privacy concerns. Apparently, it got all those privacy "i"s dotted.
