Growing Partner Ecosystem Benefits from New Management Opportunities
Accelerating customer adoption of VMware Cloud Management solutions has drawn an ever-growing number of partners into the VMware ecosystem. These partners are benefiting from the increased manageability of the VMware vSphere platform enabled by these solutions, as well as their heterogeneous capabilities and their extensibility to additional technology domains. In addition to providing new solutions and technologies, VMware is working with these partners to help transform their businesses to better serve their customers as they progress on their journey to the software-defined data center and the cloud.
After growing its cloud management partner ecosystem by 50 percent in 2012, VMware is on pace to double its network of management partners in 2013. VMware is also working closely with strategic partners to embed VMware Cloud Management solutions into existing practices or build new practices based on these solutions.
