What we do
VMware is a global leader in virtualisation, cloud infrastructure and enterprise mobility solutions and services based in Palo Alto, California. Its One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device architecture unifies private, managed and public cloud into one hybrid cloud and is built on the foundation of the Software-Defined Datacentre, allowing customers to develop and deliver all applications quickly, automatically and most importantly, securely. Using a VMware-powered cloud, customers innovate faster, create better customer engagement with new mobile-cloud apps and better manage risk across their environment.
Using the Horizon suite provides services and tools that allow your workforce to increase productivity when using desktops, business applications and data, securely delivered to any device in any location. Here at Softcat we can help define your end user workspace strategy to define where the suite can be used, which includes looking at the people, processes and technology decisions.Contact a VMware specialist’
Using VMware Cloud (VMC) services, which have been based on VMware VCF technologies; allows organisations to seamlessly extend their datacentre to the public cloud. As well as being able to access the software-defined datacentre stack as a managed service from VMware, organisations can integrate the many cloud services available from the hyperscale providers such as AWS, Azure and Google. Here at Softcat we can support with defining a Hybrid Cloud strategy via our go to cloud workshop and assessments.Book a VMware Cloud workshop
The VMware vRealize suite allows your organisation to take advantage of Operational Management, Automation, Insight and Hybrid Cloud Optimisation.

Using VMware technology organisations can enable secure application and content delivery to any device and in doing so support initiatives for a modern mobile-first approach.
Softcat is a key strategic VMware EUC partner, and have run projects end to end, which demonstrates our deep knowledge of VMware solutions and how to successfully deliver them. Working with our Professional Services, End-User Computing and Networking and Security experts customers can be confident of a highly functional solution that enhances user experience and secures corporate data.
VMware's technology has revolutionised the datacentre, helping to consolidate infrastructures, introduce new management capabilities and build better cost models. Stretching into hybrid cloud infrastructure, VMware helps customers re-imagine their processes, create new levels of automation and respond faster to change than ever before.
Datacentre solutions are at the heart of Softcat's partnership with VMware, its technology featuring heavily in the solutions we deploy for our customers. Similarly, we use VMware in our own cloud, making us exceptionally well-placed to deliver end-to-end solutions that harness on-premise and off-premise instances of VMware technology.
VMware NSX is a critical component in enabling the Software-Defined Datacentre. For the first time, organisations can virtualise the network layer just like they did compute and embed security inside the perimeter as part of the fabric of their cloud.
Softcat has pioneered VMware's networking and security solutions since VMware's acquisition of NSX in 2014 and they have remained at the forefront of innovation in this area ever since.
