We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our third-party onboarding capabilities to to bring more value to ISVs aiming to to make their products available in the IBM Cloud catalog. 

We are introducing the support for third-party providers to onboard virtual machine-based solutions deployed by using Terraform in the catalog in less than seven days. This capability is supported by our beta release of IBM Cloud Partner Center and our previously general availability release of private catalog capabilities. We’ve been working closely with a couple of key vendors to ensure we deliver a seamless experience to onboard virtual server images — while meeting business and technical requirements — in a self-served, less-than-seven-day process. Be on the lookout for those new virtual server images in the IBM Cloud catalog:
