Integrate the product with the marketplace

The product team provides the product image of their on-premises product or URL of the SaaS product to the Hitachi Marketplace technical team.

Based on the product, the Hitachi Marketplace technical team provides the integration endpoint URL, which is updated in the Edit Integration section under Product Dashboard. This action integrates the product with the marketplace.

Integrate a product using Skytap

The Hitachi Marketplace technical team uses Skytap for creating virtual machine (VM) environments for integrating on-premises products.

As a seller, you can also request access to the product's VM environment. Make sure to add this request on the seller form during the Hitachi Marketplace registration. You will then receive an email with the sharing portal URL for accessing your product’s VM environment.
