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.
