  • 10. vSphere 5: License ChangesEdition Consolidation vSphere 4.x vSphere 5.0 Enterprise Plus Enterprise Plus Enterprise Enterprise Advanced Standard Standard Essentials Plus Essentials Plus Essentials Essentials
  • 11. Understanding the Key Driver for Licensing Change Moore’s Law states the number of transistors will double every two years RAM moving forward will be a better indicator of the number of VMs running on a host Customers can now leverage advanced CPU capacity
  • 12. vSphere 5 licensing announced July 12th !
  • 13. What is vRAM? Assigning a certain amount of vRAM is a required step in the creation of a virtual machine vRAM ≠ physical RAM
  • 14. vSphere 5: License ChangesvRAM Pool Definition Atransferable, virtualization-based entitlement of RAM When a VM is powered on the vRAM configured for that virtual machine counts against the total vRAM vSphere 5.0-CPU license editions provide a certain vRAMcapacity vRAM Pool 32GB 32GB 32GB 32GB VMware vCenter Server vSphere Ent vSphere Ent 1 1 1 1 CPU CPU CPU CPU Host A Host B vRAM ≠ physical RAM
  • 15. vRAM Entitlements on July 12th
  • 16. Summary of Customer and Partner Feedback Feedback VMware Response Customers were concerned about their future-looking business cases that have been based on future hardware capabilities and the previous vSphere 4 licensing model. Substantially raise the vRAM entitlements for each vSphere edition Creates additional hesitation for virtualizing business critical apps Cap the amount of vRAM consumed per VM at 96GB* Penalizes short lived usage “spikes” in test / development & transient VMs Calculate a 12 month average of consumed vRAM rather than a high water mark Makes vSphere for VDI expensive Already addressed with vSphere Desktop edition licensed per user
  • 17. Previously Announced vs New vRAM entitlements This limit is GB of physical RAM per physical server
  • 18. Calculate vRAM based on12 month average vs high water mark High water mark Average
  • 19.
  • 20. Maximum memory allocated to the VMs is limited
  • 21. To see more vRAM than allowed in processor licenses:
  • 23. Upgrade Versions64GB vRAM 64GB vRAM 64GB vRAM 64GB vRAM
  • 24. vSphere 4: Staying PutDowngrade Rights and Support Model Only the vSphere 5 SKU will be available on the Q3 2011 release vSphere 5 licenses include the right to downgrade one version VMware supports two versions back so vSphere 4 support will be available
  • 25. In Summary Get an understanding of the amount of RAM you have allocated to VMs Leverage the free 60-day evaluation of vCenter Operations Manager to help gather the information
