VMware FAQs

What happens to existing perpetual licenses? 

You can continue using perpetual licenses with active support contracts. Post-contract, consider transitioning to subscription models for ongoing support. 

How does the transition to subscription licenses benefit customers?

Subscription licenses offer continuous innovation, faster time to value, and predictable investments, aligning with modern business needs. 

Are there incentives for transitioning to subscription licenses?

Broadcom provides upgrade pricing incentives for customers who trade in their perpetual licenses for subscription products. 

How does the simplification of VMware’s product portfolio impact customers?

It is now clearer which license will apply to each customer due to the product consolidation, but there will be a transition from legacy licensing. A provider like Colohouse can help you review your current licensing and map a path to the best licenses to optimize for cost and features. See our blog post about Adapting to your new VMware license.

Will there be support for perpetual licenses post-contract expiration? 

Once the support contract for a perpetual license expires, you must transition to a subscription model for continued support, and you will run without updates.

If we want to continue running VMWare products with support and updates, how do we do that? 

You need to purchase VMWare subscriptions for the same products or engage a VMware Cloud Service Provider for hosting options. 

What should we do to prepare? 

Even VMWare states on their official FAQ around the announcement that you should perform a licensing assessment and review your options.
