Situation:- 100 CPU based SRM License for our environment.
Problem – VMware changes their Licensing model from CPU based to VM based.
Solution:- Spoke to VMware Licensing support about this issue. They were ready to cover 5 VMs per CPU License what we had purchased. I am not sure, from where they got this number. I think there are so many factors which determines the number of VMs per CPU. Factors like – Hardware, CPU, memory etc…I spoke with VMware about this issue and after showing the numbers of VMs in our environment, they readily agreed to cover more than VMs for per processor purchased.
So, earlier we were going to get almost – 100*5=500 VMs protection
Now, we are going to get 100*12=1200 VMs.
Thanks VMware Support for quick resolution !!!
