What is the VMware Partner Network?
The VMware Partner Network is the framework for collaboration between VMware and our partners, offering a wide range of benefits, training, certifications and rewards to ensure our mutual success. The VMware Partner Network includes a range of partner programs to meet the needs of a variety of partner types.
When you initially join, you do not need to select a specific partner program. You can just join the Enrolled tier. This tier allows you to:
- Learn more about the different types of programs we offer
- Take time to decide what program is right for your business model
- Start acquiring the needed sales and technical solution skills to accelerate your time to the first VMware sale. Training is mostly free and available online.
