The VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) enables the success of public and hybrid cloud by providing Service Provider Partners with an OpEx strategy for investing in VMware infrastructure on a monthly subscription model.

What is the Service Provider Program?

VMware is the market leader in virtualization, which is the key enabling technology for building public clouds. Hundreds of thousands of companies trust VMware as their virtualization infrastructure platform. By offering VMware-based cloud services, Service Providers are positioned to deliver enterprise-class security and infrastructure compatibility based on the same technology as their customer’s internal IT infrastructure. VSPP enables the success of public cloud by providing partners with an OpEx strategy for investing in VMware infrastructure on a pay as you go, pay as you grow monthly subscription model.

VSPP is the ideal solution for companies who offer hosted services to 3rd parties, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Providers, Cloud Service Providers, Application Service Providers (ASPs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) Providers.
