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 "VMware Ready - Application Software" 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.

Key Benefits

Qualified partners will have Program access for free certification for partner software.


The App Software Certification uses VMware's Learning Platform cloud environment.   This enables partners to run certification tests in a VMware pre-configured and ready-to-use certification test bed in the cloud. The test bed is set up with vCenter, ESXi and certification tools that are pre-configured to run the certification 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 certification 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 certification, the partner is eligible to update the VMware Solutions Exchange Marketplace.  The partner's application software will receive the "VMware Ready - Application Software" 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 Solutions Exchange Marketplace.
