Empowering Partners to Solve Customers’ Multi-Cloud Challenges

We continue to be laser-focused on cloud partner success, particularly in addressing your multi-cloud service delivery needs. Keeping with that theme, at VMworld we announced 2 major product announcements to help you grow your multi-cloud business. We unveiled our newest unified multi-cloud platform, VMware Cloud Partner Navigator, and the latest update to VMware Cloud Director, version 10.2.

Expand Your Business with Simplified Multi-Cloud Service Delivery

VMware Cloud Partner Navigator, formerly Project Path, is a unified platform for Cloud Providers and MSP partners to expand their business with simplified delivery of multi-cloud services. With Navigator, partners will be able to offer customers flexibility and choice to run their applications in the cloud that best meets their requirements. VMware Cloud Partner Navigator will provide partners with a unified portal for consistently managing customers, service subscriptions, usage, billing, and support across a multi-cloud landscape. Navigator is planned for wide availability before the end of the calendar year.
