As a premier partner of Broadcom, RapidScale continues to provide uninterrupted service and support to its hosted customers, minimizing any business impact.  

RALEIGH, N.C. – April 3, 2024 – RapidScale, the leading managed cloud platform, reaffirms its steadfast commitment to its customers as Broadcom’s acquisition of VMware causes considerable disruption among technology service providers. RapidScale confirms that its core services are unaffected by these changes and is currently not increasing its prices on services that complement the hypervisor. The organization remains dedicated to providing unparalleled support and continuity to its valued customers.

Following the acquisition in November 2023, Broadcom has reduced the quantity of Primary-Level partners and available virtualization products, increasing the cost of virtualization services for most providers. The divestiture of VMware Horizon DaaS (HDaaS) End-User Computing (EUC) has also created uncertainty amongst customers as they seek direction and grounding for their desktop virtualization demands.

As one of the remaining 400 Premier-Level managed service providers, RapidScale is already well-positioned to minimize the impact of Broadcom’s changes in VMware virtualization products. RapidScale supports and guides its customers by providing well-architected, state-of-the-art hosted environments with modern equipment and solutions that naturally accommodate Broadcom’s licensing changes. The team’s dedicated resources and certified experts for hosted and public cloud enable them to deliver more optimized virtualization solutions that best fit their customers’ business needs.

“We understand Broadcom has made decisions affecting many service providers and their customers,” said RapidScale President Duane Barnes. “Upon close evaluation, there has been no direct impact on our core cloud services due to Broadcom’s changes, and we are focused on the stability, reliability, and continuity of our services to our customers. As a trusted partner, we are fully dedicated to ensuring our clients exceed their IT demands.”
