Need instant access to a production ready public cloud that you can use to seamlessly extend your VMware vSphere® environment? With VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand, you can easily provision the resources you need, while only paying for what you use. Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is offered as a pay-as-you-go service, designed to meet your agility and flexibility needs. To get started, all you need is a credit card, with no contracts required. But what if you aren’t able to purchase with a credit card? You are in luck! Today we are introducing the new Subscription Purchasing Program (SPP), where you can pay for usage with subscription credits that can be bought directly from VMware or from your preferred VMware Solution Provider using a purchase order. Now, you’ll have two great ways to purchase vCloud Air services from VMware – create a self-service vCloud Air account with your credit card, or leverage our new Subscription Purchasing Program. Either way, you can create an account and deploy your VM’s within minutes.

The Subscription Purchasing Program provides a flexible and cost effective way to purchase any vCloud Air or Horizon Air service. Whether you’re making smaller transactional purchases or larger strategically planned purchases, the Subscription Purchasing Program can address your needs. The program allows customers a flexible way to acquire cloud services using a pre-paid credit system. Credits are purchased and deposited into your account and can be used to pay for your VMware cloud services as you consume them.

Subscription Purchasing Program Benefits:

  • Offers flexibility in trying, buying and consuming vCloud Air services through a centralized purchasing program
  • Subscription fund covers new purchases, add-ons and renewals
  • Easy to budget and manage fund balances, enabling IT to choose where and how to allocate funds
  • Simple purchase and renewal process
  • Available direct or through a Solution Provider partner
