VMware Looks to Expand Cloud Market Reach by Partnering with AirVM
FREMONT, CA: Designed to help service provider speed up delivery of cloud services to their customers and increase operational efficiency, AirVM's AirSembly software has been selected by VMware as a recommended cloud management platform solution for vCloud Air Network Service Providers. When paired with VMware infrastructure, AirSembly becomes a full business management platform enabling reselling of cloud services through any go-to-market model.
The three core components of AirSembly include:
Marketplace Storefront: The platform enables vCloud Air Network Service Providers to sell VMware cloud services and any additional services directly to customer or through channel partners. It allows customization and branding of cloud product catalogue for any service at any interval for both private and public clouds and also for individual sales channels and customers.
Billing and Chargeback System: The AirSembly platform supports chargeback and billing capability. Automated metering, billing and invoicing are available for each level in the distribution channel for all types of cloud services. The platform also supports pre-paid billing with credit cards.
Automation and Provisioning: It enables cloud services to be integrated into existing workflows, and allows tracking and reporting of sales information at all levels in the sales channel. Provisioning is fully automated and additional products can be manually provisioned. Automated provisioning, a self-serve portal and a dashboard allow customers to self-manage billing of cloud service consumption which in turn reduces support costs.
“AirVM is very pleased to have this opportunity to work with VMware and its vCloud Air Network partners. AirSembly was purpose-built to support VMware solutions, and has been designed to help cloud providers and their partners sell cloud services through any type of go-to-market model. We look forward to continued success together,” says Joshua Vautour, CEO, AirVM.
