what is included?

hi

After reading several blogs and the official website I see a lot of confusion about what licenses are included in VCF 4.

Specifically, is the vRealize Suite (vRA,vROPs,....) included?

thanks

Well it does state it, but not in an easy way as you need to know which features are part of which SKU. let me try it for you:

VCF Starter
VCF StandardVCF AdvancedVCF Enterprise
vSAN AdvancedvSAN AdvancedvSAN AdvancedvSAN Enterprise
NSX AdvancedNSX AdvancedNSX AdvancedNSX Enterprise Plus
vSphere Enterprise PlusvSphere Enterprise PlusvSphere Enterprise PlusvSphere Enterprise Plus

I am not too familiar with the vRealize Suite, I will let someone else comment on it

My interpretation of putting that VCF paper alongside the vRealize Suite paper suggests:

VCF Starter = vRealize Suite Standard

VCF Standard = None

VCF Advanced = vRealize Suite Advanced

VCF Enterprise = vRealize Suite Enterprise

If in doubt, contact whoever looks after your VMware licensing for a specific quote or SKU list.

I never said it did.

Put the VCF paper and the vRealize paper side by side.
