Licensing: How to upgrade VSOM's vCOPS?

Jump to solution

Hi all!

I'm looking for a management solution for virtual and physical environments. So I thought use vCOPS Enterprise. Smiley Happy

Today I have vCenter 5 + vSphere 5 Ent Plus for all my ESXi hosts.

I thought to do an upgrade to VSOM Ent Plus and after an vCOPS upgrade (to Enterprise version).

Is it possible? (I know that are a difference between VSOM and vCOPS licensing, by socket and per VMs.)


Thanks.

Best,

Eduardo.

You can be entitled to vCOps advanced/enterprise by VM packs or per socket via the vCloud suite umbrella.

vSOM is just a licensing term for a method of packaging vCOps with other VMware products (vCenter/vSphere,etc). vSOM being a handy way to bundle everything together for SMBs and the like.

I'd suggest reaching out to your sales exec to see if they're running any upgrade promos.

Hello gradinka.

Thanks for your reply.

I believe that there is no other way as buying vCOPS Enterprise per VMs (pack).

Best,

Eduardo.
