As you may have heard, significant changes have been made to the licensing model of VMware, which is now owned by Broadcom. This blog cuts through the jargon and explains what it means for your organisation.

The Perpetual Farewell: Subscriptions Take the Wheel

VMware no longer offers perpetual licenses. If you currently have a VMware support contract, it will remain valid until the end date. However, renewals are no longer offered. VMware is now all-in on subscriptions, meaning you’ll pay annually to access the software. This might feel like a shift, but don’t worry – we’ll unpack the potential impact.

Budgeting for the Future: It’s Time for an IT Inventory Checkup

The subscription model can impact both your IT infrastructure and budget. Here’s where we get proactive. Broadcom recommends taking stock of your current licenses and support contract end dates. This will help you plan your transition and avoid any surprises down the road.
