The technical onboarding step requires ISVs to acquire validation certification from a relevant VMware Partner Ready program.

To publish a solution on VMware Marketplace, you must complete a validation process for that solution. This process involves review and testing your solution on one of the VMware platforms for its intended use.

There are several relevant Partner Ready programs for validation of third-party solutions submitted by members of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program (TAP). See What is Partner Ready and review the specific requirements for each program.

For example, if your solution is targeted for VMware Cloud on AWS, your company must complete the Partner Ready for VMware Cloud on AWS Program. Each program has specific requirements and steps to complete. For some ISVs, the validation certification may have to go through the VMware Ready Program.

To apply for a certification program, complete and submit the Partner Onboarding Form.
