    VMware Marketplace enables customers to discover and deploy validated third-party solutions, open-source solutions and first-party tools to VMware environments. It enables VMware customers to tap into the rich ecosystem of solutions that are compatible with VMware products.

    VMware Cloud Marketplace was officially renamed to VMware Marketplace. This change reflects the fact that the former VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) was consolidated into VMware Cloud Marketplace, resulting in a broad, comprehensive catalog of over 2,500 third-party, open-source and first-party solutions.

    VMware Marketplace includes third-party and open-source solutions across formats such as OVAs, ISOs, Helm Charts, Docker images and Blueprints. It also includes some first-party tools (see “VMware Tools” in the catalog), featuring management packs, content packs, plug-ins and more.
