Program Overview

The VMware Partner Application Software Integration (App Software) program helps Application Software vendors that fully support their products on VMware virtualization solutions qualify for the "Partner Ready - vSphere" logo which visibly demonstrates confidence and simplifies purchase decisions for any customer using a virtualized infrastructure. The VMware Partner Application Software Integration program is open to all vendors, subject to VMware approval. Please note this is a standalone program.

Key Benefits

Qualified partners will have Program access for free validation for partner software and to be listed on the VMware Solution Exchange with the Partner Ready logo.


The App Software Validation uses VMware's Learning Platform cloud environment.   This enables partners to run the tests in a VMware pre-configured and ready-to-use validation test bed in the cloud. The test bed is set up with vCenter, ESXi and tools that are pre-configured to run the tests.   Partners will upload their solution to the environment, configure their solution and perform tests on their solution in the cloud.

Partners submit requests for validation via a private development project on Developer Center Partner Network (DCPN), a web-based, secure collaboration tool used by the VMware Ecosystem Services team.

Listing and Logo

Upon successful validation, the partner is eligible to update the VMware Marketplace.  The partner's application software will receive the "Partner Ready - vSphere" logo in their listing.  The logo can be used in other partner collateral. Partner is required to submit the required collateral to be listed in the VMware Marketplace.
