what does VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise for 1 processor (with 64 GB vRAM entitlement per processor) means .
That is the description of the old license model - when vSphere 5 was originally released you not were licensed per processor but also by the amount of vRAM that you could access - VMware licensing is no longer done that way.
What are you looking at?
hi weinstein ,
I am looking for buy a new licence of vsphere 5.5 so I am little bit confused that how many vm I can run on vsphere enterprise edition .
In enterprise and enterprise plus edition only difference is features or is there is any VRAM or VCPU limitation with enterprise and enterprise plus edition.
According to http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vsphere_pricing.pdf - there are no limitations on physical resources -
That is right - there is a difference in the vm configuration -
vSphere Enterprise Supports 32-way vCPU entitlement, features all the capabilities of vSphere Standard plus Distributed Resource Scheduler, Distributed Power Management and Storage APIs for Array Integration/Multipathing. 32 way vCPU entitlement means you can have virtual machines with a maximum of 32 vCPUs.
vSphere Enterprise Plus
Supports 64-way vCPU entitlement, features all the capabilities of vSphere Enterprise plus Distibuted Switch, Storage DRS and Profile-Driven Storage, I/O Controls (Network and Storage) and SR-IOV, and Host Profiles and Auto Deploy. 64 way vCPU entitlement means you can have virtual machines with a maximum of 64 vCPUs.
