Submission + - VMware Abandons VRAM-based Pricing Model (

hypnosec writes: VMware has announced a new pricing structure abandoning the VRAM based pricing model completely thus giving its customers the much needed relief. About a year ago, VMware came up with a pricing scheme under which it started charging customers based on the virtual infrastructure instead of physical infrastructure. The virtualization leader asked its customer to pay based on the VRAM thus, in a way, penalizing them for deploying more virtual machines on comparatively less physical servers. Today, VMware’s CEO Pat Gelsinger announced at VMworld conference that they are going to do away with the VRAM-based pricing model. “Today I am happy to say we are striking this word from the vocabulary,” he said. Pricing hasn't been announced yet but a file [PDF] present on VMware's site does give an indication about the new pricing.
