Create Differentiated Solutions on VMware Platforms
TAP members get access to a comprehensive set of developer resources to develop rich and robust applications on VMware platform, create differentiated solutions and reduce time-to-market. These resources include,
- Products such as toolkits and APIs
- Content such as documentation and knowledge base
- Source code access and
- Services such as developer forums, incident support, architectural help and certification
These resources are packaged in the form of programs listed below. Together they are called Co-Development Programs. We continue to improve the breadth and depth of resources, so let us know your suggestions.
Through co-development programs listed below, partners can engage with VMware in the development of advanced virtualization features and adoption of VMware platform. In several cases, the programs provide an ability to influence VMware’s future technology directions.
SDK (Software Development Kit) - Partners get access to a set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) used to integrate with VMware Infrastructure. They also get resources to help trouble-shoot or architect such integrations.
IOVP (I/O Vendor Program)– Qualified IHVs interested in building and certifying drivers for VMware Infrastructure get access to DDK (Device Driver Kit) and other resources
Specific API Programs – Qualified partners get access to APIs specific to integrating with key VMware features and/or products focused in areas such as site recovery management, security and device management
