VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP)

[[TITLE]]
The VMware vCloud Air Network Program (vCAN), still commonly known as VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), is a cornerstone of VMware’s vCloud initiative. VSPP was designed to help ensure a successful partnership with VMware, through offering benefits such as support and tools through which partners can develop, promote, and sell their VMware-based products, services and solutions.
 
This program currently includes multiple partners who market themselves as Application Service Providers, Internet Service Providers, Co-location, Cloud Providers, DaaS Providers, Disaster Recovery, and Managed Service Providers. Hosted IT services include Web Services, File, Mail, Database, Application, Transaction, Disaster Recovery, Co-location, and other Managed Services.
