Ingram Micro: Partners Can Sell Pay-As-You-Go VMware Cloud Solutions
Ingram Micro has been officially authorized as North America’s VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) Aggregator. The expanded relationship means that Ingram Micro’s channel partners offer can offer VMware’s Pay-as-you-go licensing. Here’s the scoop…
VMware’s pay-as-you-go program is designed to be a “flexible purchasing model” so service providers can pay for as little or as many VMware licenses as needed. The net-result of this style of deployment is to allow a more customized virtualized IT Service.
As part of the VSPP authorization, Ingram Micro will also provide service providers with a dedicated licensing desk, channel marketing tools and tech support teams, along with “highly-skilled” virtualization tech support help desk. There’s also market development help for sales efforts both before and after a sale is made.
VMware is hoping that Ingram Micro’s size will help provide awareness of the pay-as-you-go program, along with proliferating and making sales easier.
We’ll be watching for more pay-as-you-go news from this week’s Ingram Micro Cloud Summit in Dallas.
