VMware on Thursday announced vCloud Air ISV Partner Program that aims to assist independent software vendors (ISVs) to move their applications to VMware vCloud Air, a platform for cloud services delivered by VMware.
The vCloud Air ISV Partner Program offers technical assistance and guidance to ISVs. Customers will benefit from operational and economic benefits of the hybrid cloud.
Ajay Patel, vice president, Application Services, vCloud Air, VMware, said: “Our robust ISV ecosystem partners can continue to distinguish themselves by enabling customers to move workloads back and forth without modification, all while providing a platform that is secure, scalable and interoperable with customers’ existing infrastructure.”
In addition, the vCloud Air ISV Partner Program will assist ISVs to transition to software as a service (SaaS) models with SaaS enablement services.
SaaS enablement services allow ISVs to on-board tenants, streamline application provisioning, monitor utilization, customize tenant experiences and manage customer lifecycles.
VMware is also offering a free consultation session for up to 75 ISVs on how to transform business strategies to support software as a service.
The vCloud Air ISV Partner Program offers three levels to match investments with rewards, including Access, Elite and Premier levels.
Partner solutions are featured in the vCloud Air Marketplace of the VMware Solution Exchange, VMware’s online virtualization and cloud solutions marketplace.
