Today VMware announced the VMware® vCloud® Air™ ISV Partner Program to provide a framework and support for ISVs to grow with vCloud Air. Through this program, ISVs will be armed with the tools they need to help guide customers on their hybrid cloud journey, including information on key hybrid cloud use cases, such as dev/test, packaged application migration, and disaster recovery.
This new program underlines VMware’s commitment to bringing together tools, applications and services to enable you to move to the cloud easily. Interested in selecting, deploying and optimizing an ISV solution with vCloud Air? Easily identify program participants with the new ‘VMware Ready – vCloud Air” logo.
Ajay Patel, Vice President, Application Services, vCloud Air, noted that because vCloud Air is built on vSphere, it’s easier for ISVs to migrate their virtualized on-premises software to the cloud. “However, we understand that moving to the cloud is more than just a technical transformation, so our vCloud Air ISV Partner Program also provides business, sales and marketing assistance to help ISVs adapt to this major business model change.”
Here are just a few ways VMware Ready – vCloud Air certified ISVs can help you optimize your transition to the hybrid cloud:
- Validate typical use cases in vCloud Air environments
- Simplify the process of deployment within vCloud Air
- Establish licensing guidelines for hybrid cloud use cases
- Create necessary collateral to educate and inform you about ISV software available for the VMware hybrid cloud
