EUC Foundation

VMware offers a wide variety of partner programs for hardware and software development. The End User Computing (EUC) programs provide certifications for Turnkey Appliances, storage and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions. Some certifications provide the VMware Ready EUC logo. VMware certifications are listed on the VMware Compatibility Guide.

  • VMware Compatibility Guide (VCG) posting

Upon successful certification, partners work with Ecosystem Services to update the VMware compatibility guide entry on where applicable as per the individual program guides. Once a partner's product is certified under the terms of the program, a partner may use the VMware Ready™ EUC logo in product collateral as per guidelines. Notice that the VMware Ready EUC logo is only valid for Turnkey Appliances and Proven Storage certifications.
