VMware pricing: How does the new per-VM model affect customers?

VMware adopted per-virtual-machine (VM) licensing for certain management products. The VMware pricing change represented a definitive break from established licensing models that date back to early days of computing.

Traditionally, VMware sold licenses on a per-processor basis. But hardware components have become more capable, with increased core counts and host memory inventories. The new VMware pricing model is a revenue-protection strategy against these multiprocessor, multicore servers. At the same time, it allows customers to develop a refined, get-what-you-pay-for cost model.
