VMware Ready Program



VMware Endorsement for Products and Solutions

See the value of the VMware Ready Program.

VMware Ready designates VMware’s highest level of endorsement for products and solutions created by our established partners. VMware Technology Alliance Partner members can develop their products and solutions to meet VMware standards and submit them for testing and review. Products and solutions that meet VMware Ready requirements will display the VMware Ready Logo.

VMware Ready Logo

The VMware Ready Logo helps customers quickly identify VMware partner’s products and solutions that are optimized for VMware. VMware Ready products and solutions interoperate seamlessly with a virtual infrastructure and have met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards. The VMware Ready Logo indicates the unique features and capabilities of VMware-integrated products and solutions and a solid commitment of long-term feature support. Lower integration costs provide the opportunity to eliminate legacy products that don’t deliver a complete solution. A virtualized infrastructure lets customers save both money and manpower.
