VMware announced today that vRealize Network Insight Cloud is now available via the VMware Cloud Provider Hub.
This new opportunity will allow Service Providers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to offer network, application, and security visibility as a service for either VMware SD-WAN infrastructure or for overall Data Center infrastructure.  Partners who have tenants and end-customers who need visibility end-to-end, then both offers can be used to complete visibility across VMware SD-WAN as well as the Data Center.

What is VMware Cloud Provider Hub?
VMware Cloud Provider Hub allows Service Providers to easily deploy, provision, and manage various VMware services for their tenants and customers.  MSPs who leverage vRealize Network Insight Cloud with Cloud Provider Hub will find that they can simplify managing their tenants and customers to easily deploy network visibility and analytics services so MSP staff and resources can focus on monetizing these network services.   vRealize Network Insight Cloud on Cloud Provider Hub will allow MSPs to easily add, edit, manage, remove tenants as well as other operational tasks for their tenants.   Because vRealize Network Insight Cloud is a SaaS, new features and functionality are continually added which require no maintenance for the MSP.  Each tenant will have their own separate and secure instance of vRealize Network Insight Cloud.
