SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Chelsio Communications Inc., a provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet unified wire solutions, today announced at VMworld 2007 that it has joined the VMware Community Source program, an innovative program that provides tools and resources for collaborative development effort, including access to the source code and APIs for VMware products.

The VMware Community Source program combines the best elements of open source and enterprise development, allowing partners to advance their level of functionality, enhance interoperability with VMware products and dramatically reduce the time to market of virtualization solutions for their customers.
