The VMware Solution Exchange is VMware's ecosystem marketplace – a central location where customers can research, evaluate and rate more than 2,500 solutions from VMware technology partners, systems integrators and developers.

What Is the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX)?

The VMware Solution Exchange is a socially enabled virtualization and cloud marketplace where VMware partners and developers use a self-service portal to publish rich marketing content and downloadable software. Examples include demos, screenshots, videos and joint whitepapers, as well as virtual appliances, vRealize Orchestrator plug-ins, vRealize Operations adapters, application blueprints and information describing complex enterprise solutions. Customers can then research solutions, contact partners for more information and download available software. In its first year of operation, the VSX received more than 2 million unique visitors and has become a valuable source of leads for partners who build technologies that complement, integrate or interoperate with VMware’s portfolio of products.

Program Levels & Requirements

The opportunity to publish on the VSX is available to all authorized VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) members. Individual developers may be approved to publish virtual appliances, vApps or specific content extensions to VMware management products upon request.
