40 user View 5 environment - pricing

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I need to deploy View 5 in a 40 user environment and am looking for the correct solution to include the correct licenses. The information on the VMware site really confuses me. I understand the "vSphere Desktop"-package is the all-in-one package that included vCenter, ESXi- and View-licenses, but I find the information contradictory. Some information states it comes in a 100-user only package and other information states it can be bought in 10-user packages.

Also, the "VMware View Enterprise" package comes in 10-user bundles but includes "vSphere Desktop". Perhaps this is all I need? Can I just buy three or four Starter Kits and am I good to go? Or do I need to buy separate licenses for ESXi etc?

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated Smiley Happy

Kind regards,

Raymond

So there are two packages, bundle and add-on.

Bundle includes all vCenter and vSphere that you need for your users.

Add-on assumes that you already have licensed vSphere and vCenter.

The starter-kit includes the vCenter licence and ThinApp Packager, and since you only need one licens-key for those they are in the starterkit.

Hi Raymond.

There is a few different packages, but to make it simple for you and have the functionality that most customers need then you should get:

1 x 10 User View Premier Bundle Starter Kit

3 x 10 User View Premier Bundle.

vSphere for Desktop is included with that and that means that your vSphere-hosts are licenced.

Hi Linjo,

Thank you for your quick answer. There is only one thing that still puzzles me: on the site it says: "Note: You cannot mix bundles and Add-ons." I suggest this means I just cannot buy them in one buy, but have to buy the starter kit first and the add-ons afterwards?

Kind regards,

Raymond
