Pricing and Cost Advice
It is easy to understand the licensing of vSphere. We have standard enterprise licensing.The pricing is more expensive than Microsoft.VMware is costly versus other competitors but is still one of the market leaders and expanding now with partners like AWS.​The only issue with vSphere might be with the cost of the tools and the software.​The product is worth what you pay for it. I definitely feel like I"m getting good value.Compared with other vendors’ products, the pricing of the license is slightly lower. The annual S&S price is very affordable.Start with the lowest and upgrade if, and only if, absolutely necessary.VMware is consistently expensive and their pricing arrogance is what will drive us and other customers away.
