Work with a VMware Partner
Partners deliver outcomes with their expertise and VMware technology, creating exceptional value for our mutual customers.
Become a Partner
Together with our partners, VMware is building the new multi-cloud ecosystem positioned to become essential to our customers.
VMware understands the importance of the tools that IT administrators use on a day-to-day basis to manage and oversee their data center operations. We actively work with our customers and ecosystem of partners to make these tools better and to deliver a more integrated and simple experience. By doing so, IT can be more productive supporting customers and delivering value to their business.
IT administrators are rapidly adopting the vCenter Server Appliance as their deployment model for vCenter Server. As the vCenter Server Appliance increases in popularity, we plan to make this the definitive deployment model in the future.
There are several advantages of the vCenter Server Appliance over the Windows version of vCenter Server:
Packaging applications as appliances simplifies deployment and operations, letting you focus on workloads and applications rather than the infrastructure. Maintenance tasks and downtime are minimized because there are no longer dependencies on monthly patch cycles with a general-purpose operating system. As we move forward, we encourage you to migrate to vCenter Server Appliance for a much improved experience.
The vCenter Server Appliance is available for you to download here.
VMware will no longer offer the vSphere C# client in the next release of vSphere. This approach will allow VMware to deliver the interface experience our customers are demanding in today’s fast paced IT environment. Read more.
VMware has already had some success with previous HTML 5 clients including the Host Client Fling and the Platform Services Controller Interface. The HTML5 Host Client is now included as a fully supported feature of vSphere 6.0 Update 2. Building on this success, a Fling of the HTML5 Web Client is now available for you to try in your current vSphere environment.
We are pleased to announce the VMware Web Client Certification Program, which allows partners to develop plugins for the HTML5 Web Client and vCenter Server and have them tested, validated and signed by VMware. These certified plugins will be available on the VMware Solutions Exchange and will enable you to back-up and protect your data, manage your servers and networks, and secure your data directly from vCenter Server.
