VMware Partner Program for Object Storage Extension

The VMware Partner Program™ for Object Storage Extension launched a new initiative which allows ISVs to integrate their solutions with VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension (OSE).

OSE is a modern S3-compatible self-service storage native to VMware Cloud Director and it offers a wide range of features to manage unstructured data at scale. It is currently integrated with industry-recognized storage clusters such as Cloudian, S3 AWS and Dell ECS. The main goal behind the Object Storage Extension Partner Program is to help ISVs expand and scale their cloud storage portfolio. Furthermore, it will empower ISVs to deliver a customized, seamless, and flexible storage solution that enriches user control, security and experience for tenants seeking higher manageability.
