  • 1.  Annual subscription costs

    Posted Apr 20, 2022 09:15 AM

    Hi,  could anyone tell me if there is a mandatory annual subscription charge for either Enterprise, Centre or San.  I am aware that support is required for the first 12 months but is it also required thereafter?   

    Thanks very much

    Expect a moderator to move your thread now that I've reported it, it should be in the area for vSphere or vSAN.

    For perpetual licenses, renewing Subscription&Support is optional.

    At this point you will only face the yearly support subscription cost with these prepetual license (vCenter, vSphere and vSAN) which are optional but highly recommended as software assurance is included. As VMware is shifting to a subscription company it is to be expect that the prepetual license will disapear and replaced with subscriptions which also include the support.
