Infrastructure Virtualisation

Earning this competency is your company’s launching point to earning more VMware Solution Competencies. The Infrastructure Virtualisation Solution Competency recognises partners for their demonstrated ability to virtualise and consolidate server environments using a VMware virtualisation solution.

Business Continuity

Be the trusted adviser for architecting VMware virtualisation deployments that minimise downtime and protect important data. This competency recognises your company’s expertise in deploying VMware solutions for data protection, high availability and disaster recovery.

Cloud Infrastructure as a Service

The market for cloud services is growing 10x faster than the overall IT services market, according to industry analyst IDC. Profit now from this rapidly growing opportunity with VMware’s Cloud IaaS Solution Competency. Increase your profitability by driving both new and cross-sell revenue. Be your customers’ go-to partner for private/hybrid cloud solutions and services. Transform their business with greater agility and lower costs. Become your customers’ clear choice for secure hybrid cloud solutions.

Desktop Virtualisation

According to industry analysts Morgan Stanley*, desktop virtualisation is now a $2.3B market opportunity through 2015. Expand your existing virtualisation practice by adding desktop virtualisation to your solution portfolio. The Desktop Virtualisation Competency gives you the knowledge and the expertise to deploy virtualised desktops and applications. This competency highlights your expertise in virtualised desktops and allows you to leverage key initiatives like OS migrations, desktop refresh, merger and acquisitions to transform desktops to centrally managed services.

Management

Customers need a powerful virtualisation management solution – like industry-leading vCenter Operations Management – to move to a private cloud, reduce operating expenses and deliver higher quality of service. However, only 3 percent of vSphere customers that could benefit from a management solution are actually using one today. Seize this $1.4B licensing whitespace opportunity and deliver more value to your customers**. Get enabled as a virtualisation management expert and immediately accelerate your customers’ adoption of virtualisation technology and the cloud.
