upgrade paths and licensing highlights
Upgrade Paths and Licensing (highlights)
  • Linear upgrades for customers with active support are free and automatically loaded to your online portal (not emailed). Customers retain both licenses but cannot run both.
  • VI3 Enterprise can be upgraded to vSphere4 Enterprise at no charge.
  • Previously purchased edition upgrades (e.g. Standard to Enterprise) and “a la carte” feature licenses (e.g. Vmotion) will be combined into single license keys. Where eligible quantities do not match, this will result in “unfulfillable” left-over license components
  • Existing unlimited ELA customers will require an addendum
  • Special discounts available until 12/15 explained further on next slide.

summary
Summary

We have covered some major highlights of this release

Several other features have been added (e.g. vApp) that warrant further discussion

There are many more details to review before you upgrade

vStorage Thin Provisioning

  • Virtual machine disks consume only the amount of physical space in use
    • Virtual machine sees full logical disk size at all times
    • Full reporting and alerting on allocation and consumption
  • Significantly improve storage utilization
  • Eliminate need to over-provision virtual disks
  • Reduce storage costs by up to 50%

Simplified Licensing

  • Simple license keys instead of flex
      • 1 license per edition
      • 1 key for many hosts
  • New centralized license key administration in vCenter
      • No separate license server to manage or monitor
      • Centralized host and license monitoring through vCenter enabling easy compliance
  • New license portal provides more accurate view of entitlement
slide28

VI3 License Activation Is Failure-prone

    • Too many steps and “context changes” Customers have many opportunities to get confused or take “wrong turns”
    • License files are the result of a long, multi-step portal transaction
    • Complexity illustrated: 40 pages in VI3 admin/install guide devoted to licensing
  • Go to license portal
  • Choose server or host-based file
  • Download or email license file
  • Configure licensing in VC/ESX UI
  • Upload license file

  • Receive activation code in email
  • Generate new license file
  • Select license qualities to activate
  • Install license server if needed
  • Re-read license file to server
  • Product activated
  • A Dramatically Simpler Process In VI4
    • A short and easy activation process was the single most important design requirement
    • License keys are sent in email and can be copied directly into the product – no portal activation step required
    • No separate license server means no additional installation, configuration or monitoring is required
  • Receive license keys in email
  • Enter license key into VC UI
  • Assign license key to ESX hosts
  • Product activated
