What does vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) Mean for VMware Partners?
With the new VMware vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) customers will now be able to purchase virtual resources from a VMware-operated cloud. For the last couple of years you have been able to purchase vCloud capacity from third-party cloud vendors, but vCHS is a VMware supported and sold offering. This will allow customers to use as a public cloud or connect with their internal resources to build a hybrid cloud. Typically customers purchase their licensing and services through a VMware partner. So I can’t help wondering: How will vCloud Hybrid Service affect VMware partners?
