Service Provider

 

The VMware vCloud Air Network Program enables partners to invest in VMware infrastructure on a monthly subscription basis, driving the success of public and hybrid clouds.

What is the VMware vCloud Air Network Program? 

The VMware vCloud Air Network Program is comprised of VMware software-as-a-service offerings and our global ecosystem of VMware Service Provider Partners. It is the ideal solution for all companies that offer hosted services to third parties, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers, cloud service providers (CSPs), application service providers (ASPs), Internet service providers (ISPs) and platform as a service (PaaS) providers.

 

As the world’s largest network of validated cloud services based on VMware technology, the VMware vCloud Air Network Program enables partners to consume VMware products on a pay-as-you-go, pay-as-you-grow, monthly subscription model. By offering a wide range of VMware-based cloud services on a geographical basis, VMware Service Provider Partners can now offer hybrid cloud services that quickly and seamlessly extend the customer’s data center into the cloud using the same VMware products and tools they already use on premise.

Cloud Solutions from vCloud Air Network Service Providers

vCloud Air Network Solutions, offered through VMware Service Providers, enable rapid and cost effective delivery of hybrid cloud services that customers increasingly demand. Whether infrastructure-as-a-service, disaster recovery or desktop-as-a-service, service providers can benefit from decreased time to market, reduced capital investments and lower development costs to stay competitive in the cloud computing market.
