VMware Solution Exchange (VSX)
What Is the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX)?
The VMware Solution Exchange is a socially enabled virtualization and cloud marketplace where VMware partners and developers use a self-service portal to publish rich marketing content and downloadable software. Examples include demos, screenshots, videos and joint whitepapers, as well as virtual appliances, vRealize Orchestrator plug-ins, vRealize Operations adapters, application blueprints and information describing complex enterprise solutions. Customers can then research solutions, contact partners for more information and download available software. In its first year of operation, the VSX received more than 2 million unique visitors and has become a valuable source of leads for partners who build technologies that complement, integrate or interoperate with VMware’s portfolio of products.
