Veritas Service Provider Licensing Program (VSPP)


Program Overview

As a VSPP Partner, you can purchase or consume Veritas software, hardware and hosted products in the manner that best aligns to how you do business with your customers, whether that be:

  • Upfront in a specific transaction, locking in your best long-term pricing,
  • Spread your investment out over time, providing access to more technology for annual payments, or
  • Pay as you consume the product, paying only for what you use.
