Yesterday, VMware uncovered new pricing and licensing model of vSphere 4.0 platform. In my opinion, VMware is trying to strictly split up the virtualization market into two parts - SMB and enterprise. I have a feeling from the table of features below that there is growing a hole between them. The competitors should catch the chance to fill it up.
- SMB editions - ESXi Single Server, Essentials and Essentials Plus
- Enterprise editions - Standard, Advanced, Enteprise and Enterprise Plus
