    Default Does the Appliance Scale?

    We're getting ready to virtualize our existing Zimbra infrastructure. I'm curious if the 8.0 Appliance install scales to thousands of users. When we need more capacity can you use the appliance through VMware to create and manage as many VMs as needed to serve lots of users?

    Is the traditional ZMPROV cli stuff still available with the appliance or is it all GUI and REST?

    I'm trying to figure out the best/easiest way to virtualize our 10 physical servers with many thousands of users to VMs. The Appliance might make sense if it can easily add capacity as needed.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Seems I should read the docs first. http://files.zimbra.com/website/docs..._8.0_Beta5.pdf

    They seem to indicate as much.

    I am curious if anyone else has or is attempting to build out a very large Zimbra install using the appliance instead of the traditional ZCS NE path.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I think you should try it like the mozilla IT:
