This white paper discusses the value of virtual appliances and outlines the ways in which VMware is
building a rich and diverse ecosystem around the virtual appliance model based on four key elements:

  • A VMware Ready Virtual Appliance Program which is an ecosystem initiative that enables customers to identify virtual appliances that follow best practices and are optimized for VMware Infrastructure.
  • A robust authoring tool for configuring, packaging and updating production-ready virtual appliances.
  • A large and diverse marketplace where vendors can list their virtual appliances online for customers to discover, download, evaluate and purchase.
  • A reliable, robust and proven virtualization platform for deploying and managing virtual appliances.
