VMware Licensing Changes - True or Not

Is it True?

Gabrie van Zanten has up on his blog that a change is happening with the licensing of vSphere 5 he writes about a rumor, which you can read VMware changes vRAM licensing on vSphere 5 after customer feedback on vTAX

The new policy would be;
  • VMware vSphere 5 Essentials will give a 24GB vRAM entitlement
  • VMware vSphere 5 Essentials Plus will give a 32GB vRAM entitlement
  • Max vRAM in Essentials / Essentials Plus will be maxed at 192GB vRAM
  • VMware vSphere 5 Standard vRAM entitlement has changed to 32GB ( <- my assumption)
  • VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise vRAM entitlement will be doubled to 64GB
  • VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise Plus vRAM entitlement will be doubled to 96GB

 Like I stated with the comment "Is it True?", Time will tell!
