Today VMware announced new capabilities to help accelerate our customers’ journey to the enterprise hybrid cloud. These advances would not be possible without the strong collaboration from our large ecosystem of service providers. I’d like to briefly recognize the value of that partnership.
VMware’s collaboration with service providers is both broad and deep. Many providers serve in an advisory capacity and as design partners with our engineering teams to provide valuable input on how our products are developed to meet the needs of a broad set of customers.
The overall VMware service provider network continues to grow in response to end-customer demand for services based on VMware infrastructure. Today, there are over 5,600 members of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) who deliver services in 62 countries. The VMware products and solutions that are utilized by these providers is robust, spanning across all layers of the cloud – from infrastructure to platform to end-user computing.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the positive traction of our 31 partners delivering vCloud Powered Services. Today the number of service providers has grown to 41 (see list below). We see this program continuing to aggressively expand due to demand from customers who want to use public cloud services that are built on a secure platform and are compatible with their on-premise vSphere-based workloads.
We also welcome Dell’s announcement that they’re joining the VMware vCloud Datacenter program and are excited that they will start to deliver services globally.
If you’re looking to start your own cloud journey, you can find a vCloud Service Provider and test drive a service today at vcloud.vmware.com.
