3-5X increase in VMware licensing costs

Facing escalating VMware licensing costs? Following Broadcom’s acquisition of VMware and their move towards bundled, subscription-only pricing, many organisations are experiencing a 3-5X increase in their VMware license bill.  Consequently, this unexpected expenditure is triggering an evaluation of platform decisions within many VMware customers. As a result, Northdoor can help in two areas;

1) We can help you compare, redesign, and migrate to IBM Power Systems for any workloads running Linux or SAP HANA on VMware.

2) For on-premise or cloud clients using VMware legacy solutions who need to minimise the impact of VMware pricing changes and transform their VMware solution to a more cost-effective cloud-native or microservices solution, we can help you reassess, rearchitect, transform, and migrate your legacy VMware solution to IBM Cloud.

Here’s a response from a recent example of an organisation that decided to move all of its IT estate to Azure. They faced several technical and commercial challenges that resulted in the decision to use VMWare on IBM Cloud for these workloads.

VMWare on IBM Cloud continues to be a very crucial part of our hosting strategy.  Fast and automated deployment capabilities enabled us to complete the build of three private cloud locations and migrate over 1600 servers within 8 months timeline. It’s played a fundamental part in helping us reduce cost, improve our sustainability agenda and smash our cloud migration targets.”
