We are thrilled to announce a major update to the VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) that deliver partners the flexibility and control to granularly consume VMware solutions and easily build and offer new services.

The VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) has grown over the years to help partners build cloud environments for their customers. Throughout this time, the program focused on giving partners a licensing model that provide different bundles of solutions that matched the needs of many partners. These bundles helped them grow their business based on what they needed when they needed it.

However, we recognize that not all partners have the same needs and what works for one may not work for another.

New Flexible Licensing

That brings us to now! VCPP Partners can now sign up to move to the next pricing model called Flex! Delivering the biggest change in years, we are adapting to our partner’s feedback and helping them consume the products they specifically need, when and where they need it. Want to know how? Check out this other blog article HERE.

The Flex Pricing Model brings a more flexible licensing model to running a cloud business. Now partners can utilize one standard core set of products that all partners get access to, then build on top of that foundation. They can select any add-ons, in any order, for the products they want to deliver services to meet their customers needs.

Differentiate Yourself with Custom Services

This helps partners who run businesses in specific markets like DR-as-a-Service, Monitoring-as-a-Service or new platforms like PKS, build for their exact needs.  Now more than ever, partners can say yes to more deals as they use VMware products for their cloud enterprise. The point of the Flex Pricing Model is to take VMware’s consumption pricing, and add that same flexibility to creating your own bundles.

The future for VCPP Partners is bright, with options to expand into markets like:

  • DRaaS
  • Monitoring-aaS
  • K8S-aaS
  • and more!
