VMware Convenience Pricing Program

The Quilt has a successful history of leveraging the collective purchasing power of its membership and authorized member institutions to purchase advanced networking technology and services at a lower cost.  VMware is a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility.  In an effort to leverage its buying power for improved pricing for VMware and AirWatch by VMware solutions, our Quilt community issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) in August of 2015 to select a distribution partner for a Quilt community consortium-based pricing program.

The goal the RFP effort was to identify a distribution partner that recognizes and appreciates the wealth of opportunities that exist through a constructive partnership with The Quilt and the research and education networking community.  A Quilt selected distribution partner will provide world-class customer support and partner in the delivery of VMware solutions for Quilt members and their member institutions throughout the country.

As a result of this public bid process, Carahsoft was selected as the distribution partner for a Quilt-VMware consortium pricing program.  Details about this program for Quilt members and their Authorized Quilt Buyers can be found on the program page.
