How to Buy

Understanding Pivotal Web Server Pricing
  • As part of VMware vFabric® Suite. Because vFabric Suite is sold on a per-VM basis, we recommend this option for customers who plan to run Pivotal® Web Server on vSphere. Learn more about pricing for vFabric Suite Advanced.
  • As a standalone Pivotal Web Server perpetual license. Because this option is priced per physical CPU, we recommend it for customers who plan to run Pivotal Web Server on physical infrastructure, and not on VMware vSphere®. This pricing is outlined below.

For customers who plan to run Web Server on physical infrastructure, standalone Pivotal Web Server is available as a one-time license under which support and subscription (SnS) contracts can be renewed annually.

VMware offers a choice of support levels for standalone Pivotal Web Server:

Pricing is per physical CPU, up to 6 cores per CPU. Each additional six cores require an additional license.
