Re: Buy ESXi 6.7.0 licence

Hi

For any reason, I cannot buy the current ESXi version in the Store https://store-us.vmware.com/
When I try to search by product name it only gives me the Workstation and Fusion versions.

I bougth an ESXi version some time ago with this link: https://store-us.vmware.com/buy-vsphere/ but now it is impossible to do this.

Is it still available to purchase trough your online store? What happened?

 

Thanks for your time. Greetings.

Hi, with the recent acquisition of Broadcom the type of license purchasable has changed, from February 1st only annual subscription licenses are available, furthermore the new licenses are sold per core per CPU with a minimum of 16 cores per CPU

Example: An ESXi node with a single 8-core processor will be calculated with a minimum of 16 cores

 

Furthermore, the ESXi version 6.7 has been officially out of support since October 2022 and as indicated you should then have to proceed with a downgrade of the license

I attach a PDF with the comparison of the licenses

Hi vel89 for your response.

I understrood the new schema for licencing. It is a shame not to have the perpetual Licence schema again.

But, it is still impossible to buy a suscription to ESXi licencing for now at the same page I listed. Do you know where can I buy one?

I would really appreciate a valid link to have this done.

Thanks in advance.

Hello 1337eWave

unfortunately it's not that simple, there isn't a direct link where you can buy the subscriptions now

you must request a quote based on your CorexCPUs by contacting sales or passing through one of the many authorized VMware resellers
