As enterprises move towards VMware-based private, public, and hybrid clouds, independent software vendors (ISVs) will find a fast growing market for cloud-ready applications. VMware lets you deliver on this huge opportunity through the VMware vCloud API, which allows programmatic access to cloud infrastructure, and vApps, which can be easily deployed to interoperable cloud environments.
- Write new applications or adapt existing applications to programmatically leverage a VMware-based cloud infrastructure with the vCloud API.
- Package pre-configured multi-tiered application stacks into vApps, which can be quickly deployed in VMware compatible clouds with no upfront packaging or configuration required of end users.
- Deliver enhanced value to your customers by using VMware resources and expertise when you join the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program as a vCloud ISV partner.
Taking Advantage of the VMware Partner Ecosystem
The ISV and open source community has taken note of VMware’s investment in the vCloud initiative and is integrating key solutions with the VMware vCloud API. For example, both Java and Python software development kits (SDKs) are now available for the vCloud API, making it easier for developers and ISVs to jumpstart their projects around development of related applications and tools for VMware vCloud Director based private, public and hybrid clouds.
