Any vCloud Service providers around? info for starting in VSPP program?
Posted on 2012-03-12
Hi, im trying to understand how the vspp program works, but I haven't found a simple how-to. Could someone enlighten me:
If I have my hardware (3-server cluster, without vSphere licenses), and a small building with redundant power, and dedicated circuit to a data center, can I enroll in VSPP and start "renting" vmware IaaS, by purchasing "points" from a vspp aggregator?
So for example as an entry-level VSPP partner I have to buy 360 points -- but how are these points used? Let's say I have 10 customers who need 3 VM's each, with their vCenter management console.. How do I calculate how many points I need? Also, how do I calculate how much bandwidth I should start with?
Is there any resource discussing this offering from the service provider's perspective? has anyone here had any luck with it as a business?
Are there competing solutions that I should also consider?
