CRN has recently reported rumors that VMware is changing the vRAM entitlement model for the vSphere licensing and this will be announced next week at VMworld.  The licenses will now be structured on a per processor model, as it had been in the past.  No longer will you have to add up all the vRAM in your virtualized pool to determine the amount of licenses.  No longer will you have to worry about additional licensing if you’re adding memory to an existing server. At this time, this does not appear to have any effect on the editions of vSphere and its features and functionality.

We have also heard, and want to share with you, that product sets currently licensed per VM (i.e. VC Operations, SRM, etc) will also be changing to a per processor model.

Keep in mind, that this is not an official announcement.  Champion will be at VMworld next week and we will be sure to blog all of the updates for you, as they happen, for those of you that are unable to attend.  

Stay tuned for more!
