VMware buys SlideRocket
TAW25 vmware sliderocket v2

When: April 2011

Why: At the time of the acquisition, some 250,000 people had created more than 10 million online presentations using SlideRocket's PowerPoint-like software.

How it's being integrated: SlideRocket is now a supplement to another VMware (VMW) acquisition, e‑mail provider Zimbra.

Risk: Presentations aren't central to the virtualization giant's core business. SlideRocket could end up a questionable afterthought.

Amount: Undisclosed
