VMware Introduces VMware vCloud(R) Integration Manager(TM) to Help Service Providers Accelerate the Delivery of vCloud Services

Nearly 90 VMware Service Providers Now Deliver VMware vCloud(R) Powered Services Based on VMware vSphere(R), VMware vCloud Director(TM) and the vCloud API

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/12 -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today introduced VMware vCloud® Integration Manager™, a new solution designed to help service providers automate the delivery and operations of VMware vCloud Director™-based clouds. VMware also announced that nearly 90 service provider partners now offer services that have met VMware criteria as VMware vCloud Powered, an almost 3x increase since Q3 2011.

"Service providers are looking to get high-margin cloud services to market as quickly as possible," said Mathew Lodge, senior director of cloud services, VMware. "Until now that involved wrangling manual processes, diverting scarce development resources onto writing glue code and portals, or choosing to implement complex and expensive third-party systems. With VMware vCloud® Integration Manager™, providers of VMware vCloud services will have the tools they need to automatically provision services, enable reseller partners and speed customer on-boarding."

VMware vCloud Integration Manager software will allow service providers to quickly create and deploy cloud service offerings, operate at maximum efficiency and scale to meet customer demand in a reliable, repeatable and cost-effective manner. VMware vCloud Integration Manager will help service providers:

  • Accelerate time to revenue: vCloud Integration Manager will be tightly integrated with VMware vCloud Director, VMware vSphere®, VMware vShield™ Edge and VMware vCenter™ Chargeback Manager to automate and accelerate the provisioning and delivery of infrastructure and associated services. vCloud Integration Manager will provide a REST-based API to integrate with a service provider's back office systems (CRM, billing, etc.), and a Web-based administration portal.

  • Simplify operations to increase efficiency and reduce costs: vCloud Integration Manager will include Web-based portals to streamline and automate service plan, customer lifecycle and reseller management. With the click of a button, service providers will be able to standardize product configuration and delivery, manage customer lifecycles from sign-up to decommission, and reduce the time and overhead involved in transacting with resellers.

VMware vCloud Powered Program Gains Traction
Almost 90 service providers have launched vCloud Powered services since VMware introduced the program in February 2011. The VMware vCloud Powered program requires VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) partners to offer services based on VMware vSphere and vCloud Director while exposing the vCloud API and supporting the Open Virtualization Format (OVF). Compliance with these requirements helps ensure that VMware vCloud Powered services offer customers on-demand access to virtual infrastructure from a public cloud, a secure and robust platform, and application and API portability between their internal datacenters and the VMware vCloud Powered services of their choice.

Providers of VMware vCloud Powered services are based in the United States, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, catering to a variety of use cases ranging from compute resources for pre-production environments to seasonal and transient workloads to disaster recovery in the cloud.

Pricing and Availability
VMware vCloud Integration Manager is expected to be available in Q1 2012 and will be priced on a usage-based subscription model familiar to vCloud Service Providers. For more information, visit the vCloud Integration Manager landing page on Partner Central.
