VMware, Inc., a player in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, announced the appointment of Ingram Micro India Limited as its second authorized aggregator for the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) in India. With this appointment, VMware expands its existing engagement with Ingram Micro as a ‘Value Added Distributor (VAD)’ for India.
The VSPP has been uniquely designed to help service providers develop, promote and sell their cloud products, services and solutions. The model, introduced in 2010, is fast emerging as a preferred option for Indian companies, both large and small, who are looking at subscription-based hosted IT services to easily address their dynamic business requirements, while maintaining control and security of their IT environments.
“We are witnessing a strong demand for subscription-based hosted IT services through VSPP in India. The growing interest by partners suggests that public and hybrid clouds are not only a strategic imperative in organizations today, but also that Indian companies are increasingly considering, evaluating and consuming compute services in the cloud,” said Ganesan Arumugam, director, Partners and Alliances, VMware India & SAARC
