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 VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) solutions. Some certifications provide the VMware Ready EUC logo. VMware certifications are listed on the VMware Compatibility Guide.
Program access includes the tools and resources needed during the development and release phases.
- VMware's Advanced Developer Center Portal
The Developer Center portal is a web-based collaboration tool used by the VMware Ecosystem Services team and provides access to all the program entitlements and materials.
- Access to the pre-release versions of the Horizon product, Horizon Client Binaries and other EUC products
Partners receive access to the pre-release versions of the Horizon product, Horizon Client binaries and other EUC products for integration into various partner solutions.
Partners receive access to program assets related to the various EUC certifications such as Turnkey Appliances, Proven Storage, Reference architectures, VCAI (View Composer Array Integration) and VVOLs (Virtual Volumes) with Horizon at scale.
- Certification Kits and Guides
The program includes access to certification kits and guides that describe the certification procedures and test cases for certifying/validating Turnkey Appliances, Proven Storage, Reference architectures, VCAI (View Composer Array Integration) and VVOLs (Virtual Volumes) with Horizon at scale.
- VMware Compatibility Guide (VCG) posting
Upon successful certification, partners work with Ecosystem Services to update the VMware compatibility guide entry on vmware.com where applicable as per the individual program guides. Once a partner's products 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.
Partners may self-register their certified and listed products on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).

The goal of the VMware Horizon Fast Track program (formerly called Rapid Desktop and FastTrack program) is to accelerate the adoption of View by enabling an ecosystem of pre-assembled, easily requested certified appliances, validated reference architectures and certified storage solutions.
The VMware Horizon Validations Program enables partners to validate/certify Virtual Volumes at scale with Horizon workflows [500 to 2000] and also enables partners to validate/certify View Composer Array Integration (VCAI) at scale with Horizon workflows [500 – 2000].
