Partner Network

VMware Ready™ is a comprehensive validation and co-branding program that makes it easy for technology alliance partners, global OEM partners, and system builders to show customers that their solutions have passed VMware-specified integration or interoperability criteria and are technically ready for use with VMware vSphere™ and VMware View™ Products. Partners who have passed the VMware Ready validation process gain access to exclusive marketing and co-branding resources, and can apply the VMware Ready logo to their hardware or software products as proof that their solutions have been validated by VMware.
