About VMware App Launchpad Service

VMware App Launchpad service is an application platform as-a-service offering, that lays out a self-service portfolio of pre-configured, out-of-box applications appealing to developer personas. With a single click, developers can deploy full-stack applications without the need to manage the underlying infrastructure.

Service providers can provision VMware App Launchpad service through the VMware Cloud Partner Navigator.

VMware App Launchpad service introduces multi-cloud endpoint support, with a unified application deployment framework on:

  • VMware Cloud Director Service
  • VMware Cloud on AWS
