Internet Vikings Secures VMware Premier Partnership, Empowering iGaming And Sports Betting With Cost-Effective Solutions

Internet Vikings, a prominent hosting provider catering to the iGaming and sports betting sectors, has achieved a significant milestone by attaining VMware Premier partner status.


This strategic alliance equips the company to offer clients robust protection against the financial ramifications stemming from VMware's recent licensing adjustments.


In a transformative move announced on December 11, 2023, VMware, under Broadcom's umbrella, disclosed its decision to phase out perpetual licenses and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings, transitioning instead towards a subscription-based framework.


While this transition heralds enhancements in services such as VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) and VMware vSphere Foundation (VVF), it concurrently introduces potential cost escalations for clients necessitating specialized features.


This paradigm shift in licensing poses notable challenges across various industries, including the dynamic realms of iGaming and sports betting.


In anticipation of the forthcoming impacts on businesses, Internet Vikings is gratified to have been designated as a VMware Premier partner. This esteemed status enables Internet Vikings to extend invaluable support to clients in navigating this transition seamlessly while proactively mitigating any potential surge in expenditures.


Moreover, Internet Vikings pledges to offer a white-label solution to partners lacking direct access to VCSP (VMware Cloud Service Provider) licensing options through Broadcom, ensuring widespread support and accessibility across the spectrum.


Kristoffer Ottosson, Chief Operating Officer at Internet Vikings, affirms: “VMware's shift to subscription licensing impacts the digital infrastructure within the iGaming and sports betting industry. As a VMware Premier partner, we’re prepared to help our clients adapt, providing them with access to scalable and economical solutions.”


Echoing Ottosson's sentiment, Rickard Vikström, CEO and Founder, asserts: “Together with our expertise and the benefits of the Premier Partner Program, we can help avoid any unnecessary expenses during the transition. This positions us as a reliable, long-term partner that stays ahead of the licensed iGaming and sports betting industry changes.”


Beyond merely addressing the immediate cost implications of VMware's licensing modifications, the collaboration underscores Internet Vikings' unwavering commitment to delivering bespoke, client-centric solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of its esteemed clientele.


In securing the VMware Premier partnership, Internet Vikings reaffirms its dedication to empowering the iGaming and sports betting sectors with cost-effective, future-proof solutions, thereby fortifying its position as a trusted ally in the realm of digital infrastructure provision.
