VMware EVO:RAIL vSphere Loyalty Program

Written by Roy Mikes on Wednesday, 20 May 2015. Posted in VMware

EVO:RAIL. VMware announced the availability of the program stating “We developed the VMware EVO:RAIL vSphere Loyalty Program to allow our VMware vSphere customers to apply their licenses to the purchase of VMware EVO:RAIL appliances from our nine Qualified EVO:RAIL Partners. This program enables our customers to preserve their existing investment in VMware software, while reducing their overall cost of an VMware EVO:RAIL appliance purchase.” 

This programs means that customers who with VMware licenses that were obtained through Enterprise Licensing Agreements (ELAs) , OEM partners, distribution or other resale channels are eligible for the program. Customers will also require a minimum of 8 CPU vSphere Enterprise Plus licenses to commit to one VMware EVO:RAIL appliance. 

While VMware have announced the program they have not provided a mechanism to support its implementation. If a customer does however want to use their ELA or otherwise acquired VMware licenses in this program with VSPEX BLUE the reseller and their distribution partner should request special pricing from EMC and it will be handled accordingly.
