KERIO MAILSERVER ACHIEVES VMWARE READY
Kerio’s Mobile Groupware Server Tested for Deployment in VMware Infrastructure
SAN JOSE, Calif., — March 9, 2009 — Kerio Technologies, Inc., a
leading provider of award-winning Internet security and
messaging solutions and select member of the VMware
Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program, is announcing the
immediate availability of the Kerio MailServer Virtual Appliance,
which has achieved VMware Ready status. This designation
indicates that Kerio MailServer Virtual Appliance has passed a
detailed evaluation and testing process managed by VMware.
VMware provides TAP program members with tools to develop
products that are complementary to VMware virtualization
software and deliver high-value solutions to joint customers.
“Kerio MailServer effectively leverages VMware virtualization
to allow businesses to easily access email, calendars, contacts
and tasks anytime and anywhere,” said Bernie Mills, senior
director, alliances programs at VMware. “We are pleased that
Kerio is delivering added value to customers with innovative
technology combined with significant business benefits of
VMware virtualization, including lower capital and operating
expenses, business continuity, strengthened security and
reduced energy consumption.”
This new certification allows Kerio MailServer to be easily
“dropped” into a VMware server infrastructure with standard
configuration and does not require a separate OS installation.
Once installed, Kerio MailServer Virtual Appliance can be
administered remotely and updated like the standard product.
Virtualization allows companies to reduce energy and
hardware costs over time. IT organizations have the flexibility
to choose a single powerful server or a blade enclosure to
have increased scalability. These flexible solutions provide
enhanced integration with additional storage systems.
“Kerio is honored to receive our VMware Ready status,” said
James Gudeli, vice president of Business Development for
Kerio Technologies. “We have a long history of delivering
messaging software that exceeds industry standards and
meets the needs of the SME market, and we believe this will
help our channel provide even more value to their customers.”
For VARs that standardize in VMware environments for their
SME customers, Kerio MailServer Virtual Appliance is easy to
install and provides secure messaging collaboration for the
mobile workforce to access business data. Kerio MailServer
includes integrated anti-spam and anti-virus, built-in backup
and archiving, and multiple mobile device support.
The VMware Ready program is a VMware co-branding
program for qualified partner products and is a benefit of the
VMware TAP program. With more than 900 members
worldwide, the VMware TAP program works with best-of-
breed technology partners to provide them a comprehensive
set of VMware technical and marketing services, support, tools
and expertise to deliver enhanced value to joint customers.
Kerio MailServer 6.6 is immediately available on Cent OS. The
product is localized into 16 languages. For more information,
