VMware Licensing VP: CPU Pricing Change Has ‘Zero Impact’

‘AMD has a few levels above 32 cores. For those that are, we tried to be as flexible as possible in giving customers a fair amount of time to grandfather them in with the goal being zero impact to our existing customers,’ says VMware’s Ryan Knauss, vice president of licensing and pricing.

Can we expect any more changing on the software licensing front from VMware in 2020?

The cloud is certainly very relevant to us and our business in the way that we bring our solutions to market. Increasingly, subscription, non-perpetual licensing – being it on-premise or some type of hybrid offer that’s in the cloud and on-premise but still licensed on a non-perpetual basis -- I think will become a bigger part of our business. We’re increasingly hearing from customers and partners that they want the flexibility of non-perpetual licenses. It’s not a huge demand out there right now, but certainly some of the comments that I receive is that, over time they do want more of that flexibility. Certainly from an industry perspective, a lot of folks are moving more toward – even for on-premise – to a non-perpetual licensing model. But equally so, while I am getting those requests, I am hearing from our customers who are deploying on-premise and that are either doing long-term leases on the physical hardware or purchasing the physical hardware, that they still want that perpetual option as well.
