Notice of VMware Workspace Portal Standalone SKU - End of Availability
VMware is announcing the End of Availability of the standalone Workspace Portal license SKUs, effective as of December 31, 2015. After this date you will no longer be able to purchase standalone licenses for the existing Workspace Portal product.
The Workspace Portal product itself is not being end-of-lifed. In fact, it is being renamed VMware Identity Manager Standard Edition with new releases planned. Existing customers current on Service and Support will receive product binaries and licenses for new product updates under the name of VMware Identity Manager Standard.
Customers who wish to expand their existing deployments of Workspace Portal may purchase additional licenses of the existing SKU between now and December 31, 2015. After that time, customers may purchase VMware Identity Manager Advanced Edition, the new standalone offering that includes AirWatch device registration for one-touch SSO from smartphones, tablets, and Windows 10 devices.
This change does not affect the published VMWare Life Cycle policy for VMware Workspace Portal (now VMware Identity Manager Standard Edition)
