VMware Bows Ready Program

LAS VEGAS -- Today at VMworld 2008, VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, announced the expansion of the VMware Ready Program for partners providing management solutions for the Virtual Datacenter Operating System (VDC-OS) from VMware. (See related press release, VMware Announces Next Generation of Virtualization—the Virtual Datacenter Operating System.”) The VDC-OS transforms enterprise datacenters into an “internal cloud” – an elastic, shared, self-managing and self-healing utility that also federates with external clouds of computing capacity to free IT from the constraints of static hardware and location. The VMware Ready Program gives management solution partners full access to a rich set of management functionality and integration interfaces for the VMware vCenter management product portfolio – as well as technical qualification, integration best practices and logo usage that offer customers an easy way to identify products that tightly integrate with or extend native VMware vCenter management capabilities.

Key management vendors including BMC Software, CA, EMC, HP Software, IBM Tivoli, NetIQ, nworks (a veeam company), Quest Software, Symantec, and Tripwire are using vCenter technologies today and are delivering or qualifying VMware Ready management solutions.
