Posted by Josh Townsend on Wed, Mar 06, 2013 @ 08:47 AM
Last week we covered the launch of VMware’s new and updated End User Computing Products, including Horizon View 5.2, Horizon Workspace, and Horizon Mirage.  Those products became generally available (GA) on Monday (March 4, 2013).  With GA came information on pricing and licensing for individual products and for the Horizon Suite, which includes all of these components under one SKU.  With the full Horizon Suite licensing, IT gains a comprehensive set of tools to manage endpoints and provide users with increased levels of service and availability.

PSA: Less Than 1 Month Until Free VMware vCloud Suite Offer Expires

Posted by Josh Townsend on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 @ 11:06 AM
A friendly public service announcement: VMware announced at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco that any customer with vSphere Enterprise Plus licensing under a current Support & Subscription (SnS) agreement as of August 27th would receive a free upgrade to the new vCloud Suite Standard Edition. The free upgrade offer is only available through December 15, 2012. The vCloud Suite Standard Edition includes vSphere Enterprise Plus, VMware vCloud Director, vCloud Connector and vCloud Networking & Security Standard (formerly known as vShield Edge and vShield App). There's some other great discounts to move from the vCloud Suite Standard edition to higher editions with even more functionality built in -- I've detailed those here. VMware added products to the vCloud Suite at VMworld 2012 in Europe making the Enterprise Edition very attractive for customers building private clouds and moving towards hybrid clouds - more on that here. Another cool thing to consider is that when you license the vCloud Suite, the components within (vCenter Operations, vCloud Director, Site Recovery Manager, etc.) switch from a per-VM license model to an ESXi host socket license model meaning that you'll be able to use these products cheaper and without a licensing headache for each new workload you stand up.
