Few weeks ago I wrote about the new vSphere 5 licensing.  Well it appears it has changed for the better.  I think this will help some people swallow the pill to upgrade to vSphere 5.

If you're not familiar with the new vSphere 5 licensing system you can read about it Here.

VMware has decided to up the memory count for each license in the vRAM Entitlement.

Here was the original vRAM entitlement for each type of VMware license.

  • Standard - 24GB
  • Enterprise - 32GB
  • Enterprise Plus - 48GB

Now they changed the vRAM counts to:

  • Standard - 32GB
  • Enterprise - 64GB
  • Enterprise Plus - 96GB
More information can be found on the vmware blog Here.
