VMware Cloud Universal Goes Live on March 31, 2021

VMware Cloud Universal allows customers to establish a flexible commercial agreement with VMware to commit once and consume VMware Cloud offerings dynamically, as their needs evolve. The commercial structure of the program offers three key benefits.

  1. Choice and Flexibility is designed to allow customers to enter into a multi-year, dollar-based commitment contract based on an initial estimate of their deployment needs. Customers have the choice and flexibility to redeem those dollars towards any eligible program offer at any time during the contract duration.
  2. The Convertibility benefit is a unique value for customers that are uncertain about their cloud migration plans. Convertibility provides customers with the ability to convert and apply unused on-premises VCF-Subscription deployments towards a new VMware Cloud on AWS or VMware Cloud on Dell EMC subscription.
  3. Cloud Acceleration Benefit (CAB) is a new program designed to offer customers an incentive to migrate from their existing perpetual licenses to a VMware Cloud subscription offering.

You can read this blog and visit the VMware Cloud Universal page for details.

How do customers get an idea for the subscription price? Can they just convert what they paid for VMware Cloud Foundation to a multi-year subscription?

@Jmccabetwo - Normally, your Sales Rep should be able to model customer use cases by using the investment estimation tool.  Have you tried contacting your Sales Rep?

Feel free to use the VMC Sizer website

With your environment requirements entered, click get Recommendation and then over on the right side click Get TCO > Request TCO Over Email. From there, a VMC Sales rep should reach out and assist in determining total cost of ownership for the proposed environment running the proposed workload set.
