The VMware Partner Connect Program increases opportunities for service provider success with the Managed Services Provider model.


The VMware Partner Connect Program includes a Managed Services Provider model within which partners can leverage VMware Software-as-a-Service offerings to deliver value-added managed services without investment in data center capacity.

Managed Services Provider Overview

The Managed Services Provider model under the VMware Partner Connect Program enables partners to leverage service offerings to broaden their technology portfolio and wrap these solutions with unique managed services. Offering both license subscription and managed services models under the same program gives partners more choice and flexibility in how to build and offer cloud solutions. The program helps accelerate service provider growth.

VMware Cloud Partner Navigator is a unified platform that enables partners to expand their business beyond their cloud, with easy access to a broad portfolio of multi-cloud services powered by VMware Cloud Partner Navigator. It allows partners to simplify the delivery of differentiated services across clouds.
