VMware Licensing Changes

Hi folks! As you know, nothing is static in the IT world especially licensing!

Earlier this year in September, VMware transitioned to per VM licensing for some of their products. Other products stayed with their original licensing model. This can get confusing for customers so VMware has it all nicely summed up on their website on how things are going to work going forward.

I am personally not a fan of per VM licensing because then that hampers selling customers on the multiple VM’s message, but on the positive side it should reign in VM creep. :)

Anyways you can read more about the changes here.
