VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP)
VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) Overview
The VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) is a cornerstone of VMware's vCloud initiative. VMware has established the VMware Service Provider Program, a framework that allows Service and Hosting Providers to consume VMware virtualization solutions in a way that aligns with their business model. This creates new opportunities for Providers to offer virtualization enabled solutions, applications and services for their customers and sets the foundation for greater profitability and success.
The VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) was created for partners who offer cloud computing and/or hosted IT services to enterprise and SMB organizations. Through a product subscription model, VSPP allows partners flexibility in offering virtualization solutions, applications and services to their customers with no up-front expenses. VSPP is the ideal solution for various types of VMware partners who offer hosted services to 3rd parties, such as Cloud Service Providers, Application Service Providers (ASPs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Platform as a Service (PaaS) Providers and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Providers.
