Broadcom is killing off VMware perpetual licences

Broadcom is killing off VMware’s on-premises perpetual licenses – and getting set to strong-arm VMware customers onto subscriptions, by also ending the sale of Support and Subscription renewals for such customers.

VMware described this to customers as part of its plan to “complete the transition of all VMware by Broadcom solutions to subscription licenses.”

“We are [also] ending the sale of Support and Subscription (SnS) renewals for perpetual offerings beginning today” SVP Krish Prasad said in a FAQ.
