Hi v(CF)Admins,

I am excited to introduce the new simplified licensing structure of VMware by Broadcom.

This groundbreaking strategy involves the utilization of streamlined bundles, giving customers the ease of choosing from a simplified foundational Solutions.

Additionally, you have the opportunity to enhance with supplementary functionalities through the integration of Add-on Services (Storage,DR/RWR,Advanced Security and Private IA).

So let’s delve into the details of these simplified Solutions.

With the introduction of these new streamlined products VMware by Broadcom reduce complexity. In the past, there were approximately 168 products and bundles available. These have been reduced to only 2 Foundational offers (VMware Cloud Foundation and vSphere Foundation) plus Add-On services.

VMware Cloud Foundation encompasses a wide range of tools necessary for implementing an advanced Hybrid Cloud Solution suitable for Enterprises. On the other hand, if you are working with smaller data centers or mid-size environments, the vSphere Foundation bundle might be a more suitable choice.
