VMware Enterprise License Agreement

The VMware Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) is a contract with your customer that allows for the purchase VMware products up front at an agreed-upon discount. The ELA is a type of agreement that allows the customer to deploy up to a specific number of licenses purchased during the ELA period.

Characteristics of an ELA include:

  • Minimum total deal value US$250K
  • Minimum net new license revenue US$150K (US$100K Mid-Market)
  • Mutually signed agreement / SRA – Legal (This is transparent with Lenovo)
  • Enables Lenovo to sell VMware components not on our price list or catalog
  • Provides client cost savings with additional discounts
  • Ease and flexibility of deployment with one license key
  • Additional discounts and price protection thru deal registration
  • Typically includes VMware support, but Lenovo support can be optional

Adding products will result in VMware amending and extending the existing ELA.

Upgrades & Renewals

To upgrade from a product with “lesser” functionality to a product with a richer feature-set that includes the functionality of the lesser product, VMware has created specific SKUs that correspond to the allowable upgrade paths. With the exception of VMware View product Functionality Upgrades, no separate Support and Subscription Services (SnS) upgrade SKUs will be offered. Customers will order the full SnS SKU for the destination license along with the License upgrade. Any remaining SnS on the original license will be credited in the form of additional days on the new replacement license SnS.

All renewals are provided by VMware.

VMware vSphere

The models listed in this section offer the base product license with 1 year, 3 year, or 5 year physical or electronic entitlement.

For upgrade products, customers must have the original base product on a current Lenovo services contract and must have registered for Lenovo support on the original base product so that upgrade can be added to an existing service contract.

For more information, see the VMware licensing and pricing paper, available from:

VMware vSphere Essentials Kits

VMware vSphere Essentials kits are all-in-one solutions that combine virtualization for up to three physical servers (up to two processors each) with centralized management capabilities. The kits are self-contained solutions and may not be decoupled or combined with other VMware vSphere editions. The server hosts must be managed by the vCenter Server Essentials edition that is provided with this bundle, and that same vCenter Server Essentials edition cannot be used to manage other server hosts not included with this edition.

VMware vSphere Acceleration Kits

vSphere Acceleration Kits are an all-in-one convenience bundle that provide a simple way for customers to purchase all the necessary components to set up a new VMware environment. Each kit consists of six processor licenses or vSphere and a license for one instance of vCenter Server Standard.

Unlike the Essentials Kits and VMware vSphere 6.x Acceleration Kits that function as single entity, vSphere Acceleration Kits decompose into their individual kit components after purchase. This allows customers to upgrade and renew SnS for each individual component on its own schedule.

VMware vSAN

VMware vSAN is a new software-defined storage tier, which pools compute and direct-attached storage resources, and clusters server disks and flash drives to create resilient shared storage. VMware vSAN creates a distributed shared data storage designed and optimized for virtual machines.

VMware vSAN Editions

vSAN license editions include Standard, Advanced, Enterprise, and Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise.

  • Standard Edition: Best suited for hybrid environments so customers can simplify and automate storage management with per-VM storage policies. The Standard license supports all-flash vSAN configurations.
  • Advanced Edition: Standard Edition plus all-flash space efficiency features (deduplication, compression and erasure coding) provides the most cost-efficient performance to customers invested in all-flash.
  • Enterprise Edition: Advanced Edition plus software-defined, data-at-rest encryption and stretched clusters delivers greater hardware choice and cost savings to customers. Any cluster with three or more physical hosts plus a witness host is a stretched cluster.
  • Remote Office Branch Office Edition:vSAN for ROBO is best suited for remote locations with low consolidation ratios. It is sold as 25-VM packs based on vSAN Standard, Advanced or Enterprise Editions and is distributable across the different remote sites. It is limited to a maximum of 25 virtual machines per site. vSAN for ROBO are per-VM licenses available in a pack of 25.

For more details on the different vSAN editions see the vSAN licensing guide:
https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/products/vsan/vmware-vsan-67-licensing-guide.pdf

vSAN Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise licenses are per-CPU (socket) licenses. All hosts in the cluster must be licensed. A 2-host vSAN cluster with a witness host can be deployed with any license edition. vSphere and vSphere with Operations Management licenses do not include vSAN. Any type of workload—server and desktop—can be run on a vSAN cluster with these licensing editions.

VMware Cloud Foundation

VMware Cloud Foundation is an integrated software stack that bundles compute virtualization (VMware vSphere), storage virtualization (VMware vSAN), network virtualization (VMware NSX), and cloud management and monitoring (VMware vRealize Suite) into a single platform that can be deployed on premises as a private cloud or run as a service within a public cloud. Cloud Foundation helps to break down the traditional administrative silos in data centers, merging compute, storage, network provisioning, and cloud management to facilitate end-to-end support for application deployment.
