For 18 years, HPE and VMware have worked together to revolutionize virtualization economics and create new efficiencies for clients by delivering the industry’s most complete portfolio of integrated systems.
Here are the top 3 reasons why you should buy VMware through HPE’s OEM program.
Did you know that if you purchase VMware licenses directly from VMWare you only get technical support in English? This is a challenge for many Spanish speaking customers. When you buy the license through HPE’s VMware OEM program, support is available from a single vendor for both physical & virtual infrastructure with over 1,100 HPE support professionals trained on our integrated solutions.
The VMware OEM portfolio from Hewlett Packard Enterprise includes a 1 / 3 / 5-year 24x7 unlimited support and subscription services. What’s most attractive is that you get level 1 and 2 support with an HPE representative which can open your ticket in Spanish, Portuguese, French, German or even Chinese. This is especially useful for your customers in Central America and Spanish speaking countries.

If you are already an HPE partner and can register opportunities, adding the licenses to an infrastructure project (or even if just buying them standalone) can get you better volume pricing and better discounts. An added benefit is you are purchasing them from the same distributor in the same purchase order. This makes your purchasing process much simpler and streamlined.
Remember that Hewlett Packard Enterprise branded licenses are identical to VMware native software and are transferable to any other HPE or non-HPE servers as needed and fully supported. Base licenses must be sold with the equivalent number of HPE ProLiant Servers within 30 days.
You can train to sell VMware in HPE’s Engage and Grow portal. You can get points for the trainings and this translates into fun prizes. Make sure to sign up directly in the Engage and Grow platform.
