VMware has made its SD-WAN offerings to its channel partners through the Partner Connect Program.
VMware’s SD-WAN offering came by way of its acquisition of VeloCloud Networks in 2017, the same year Cisco acquired SD-WAN startup Viptela.
SD-WAN is available both through the Cloud Provider and Reseller tracks of the Partner Connect Program.
The Cloud Provider model has the solution offered as a term-based subscription for both the software and hardware components, while the Rental and MSP models have the software offered as both VMware hosted and as a downloadable version for on-prem setups.
The hardware component is available either as a one-off CapEx payment or as a subscription-style OpEx model for flexibility.
