VMware software licensing - VSSP

VMware’s leadership in enterprise virtualisation and cloud computing presents service providers with unique opportunities for revenue, differentiation and growth.

The VMware Service Provider Programme (VSPP) was created for partners who offer cloud computing and/or hosted IT services to enterprise and SMB organisations. Through a product subscription model, VSPP allows partners flexibility in offering virtualisation solutions, applications and services to their customers with no up-front expenses.

Softcat is a VMware Authorised VSPP Aggregator and our dedicated SPLA team have considerable experience working with VMware on the VSPP. As a leading UK provider under the programme we have worked with all kinds of service providers to create VMware software licensing agreements that match business needs with the right cloud computing solutions and virtualisation technology.
