to Improve Mission Outcomes

RESTON, Va. — June 7, 2023 — Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, announced that VMware has been added to Carahsoft’s Distributor Seller of Record (DSOR) program in the AWS Marketplace, which combines the benefits of the Private Offers feature from Amazon Web Services (AWS) along with Carahsoft's contract vehicles to provide customers a seamless acquisition process for their cloud-based products and solutions in the AWS Marketplace.

The DSOR program through Carahsoft streamlines procurement for Government agencies, making it easier to purchase software and services from AWS Marketplace vendors, such as VMware. The program leverages Carahsoft’s extensive network of reseller partners, system integrators and managed service providers to offer customers access to the best possible pricing and procurement options.
