VMware announced that it is empowering European-based partners such OVH, Telefonica and Tieto to deliver new and differentiated services all built on its cloud infrastructure.

VMware announced the following surrounding the VMware Cloud Provider Program:

 - Continued growth in VMware Cloud Verified partners, with 27 partners including more than a dozen partners across Europe now holding the VMware Cloud Verified designation, up from only five a year ago. VMware Cloud Verified partners have fully deployed VMware Cloud infrastructure and enable customers the performance and scale to support their application requirements.

 - New VMware Validated Designs (VVDs) for Cloud Providers are now available, enabling partners to deploy and operate VMware cloud infrastructure for a wide range of use cases and provide a fast, proven path to achieving VMware Cloud Verified status.

 - Previously announced solutions across the Cloud Provider Platform are now generally available, including VMware Cloud Provider Pod, VMware vCloud Director 9.5, VMware vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR, and VMware vCloud Usage Insight Service.

Through the VMware Cloud Provider Platform, VMware helps partners deliver a modern VMware-based software-defined data center that is purpose-built for partners and enables them to expand their multi-cloud managed services portfolio by integrating additional VMware cloud offerings. The new VMware Cloud Provider Pod enables partners to stand up a VMware-based software-defined, multitenant datacenter based on a partner’s cloud design, in just a few clicks, and provides an accelerated path to VMware Cloud Verified designation. The VMware Cloud Provider Hub will enable partners to expand their multi-cloud managed services offerings to include VMware Cloud on AWS and other VMware multi-cloud operations services. As a result, partners can meet their critical business imperatives: drive operational efficiency with automation, quickly monetize new services, and compete more effectively.

Ajay Patel, SVP and GM, Cloud Provider Software Business Unit, VMware
The VMware Cloud Provider program continues to be strong across Europe, with more than half of our VMware Cloud Verified partners coming from this region. VMware Cloud Verified partners are a set of strategic partners offering complete VMware software-defined data center as a service with value-added services and support.

Al Sadowski, Research VP, 451 Research
As European businesses expand within the region, and even across the globe, VMware Cloud Provider Program partners such as OVH, Rackspace, Telefonica and Tieto, offer customers modern VMware-based cloud solutions with consistent infrastructure and operations, and a portfolio of managed multi-cloud infrastructure and operations services.
