What is the difference between on-demand and subscription pricing?  On-Demand Pricing
On-Demand consumption allows you to pay for physical hosts by the hour. There are no upfront costs and you have the flexibility to scale the number of hosts up or down without long-term commitments. You only pay for each hour that the host is active in your account. If you choose the on-demand option, you will be billed at the end of the month in arrears.
Subscription PricingPrepay longer-term subscription of hosts gives you up to 50% cost saving compared to on-demand hosts consumed over the equivalent period. Host subscriptions are available in 1-year or 3-year terms. If you choose a 1-year or 3-year subscription option, you can choose to prepay upfront or pay monthly.

Reliably and cost-effectively protect your vSphere virtual machines (VMs) to the cloud and recover them rapidly to VMware Cloud on AWS using VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery – an easy-to-use, on-demand disaster recovery (DR) solution, delivered as SaaS, with cloud economics. VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery helps lower the cost of DR by storing backups in cloud storage in a highly efficient manner and allowing you to pay for recovery host capacity only when you want to conduct a DR test or perform a failover. Rapid recovery is possible at scale because of the "live mount" capability which enables fast power-on of the recovered VMs in VMware Cloud on AWS without a time-consuming data rehydration process. A full-featured SaaS-simple DR orchestrator is built-in to minimize the need for manual effort during recovery. The service is tightly integrated with VMware Cloud on AWS for efficient recovery and a consistent operational experience without error-prone VM format conversions. End-to-end and daily data integrity checks of the backups and continuous DR health checks of the DR plans ensure a high level of reliability and minimize recovery risk. VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery also supports a deep history of immutable snapshots for effective recovery from ransomware attacks- a fast-emerging cause of DR incidents.

For VMs migrated using VMware HCX from a source location to VMware Cloud on AWS, this capability enables the cloud-side VMs on the HCX extended network to route traffic optimally through the cloud-side first-hop gateway instead of being routed through the source environment router. This helps you avoid a hairpin or trombone effect. Policy routes will allow control over which traffic is routed locally using the cloud gateway versus traffic through the source gateway.

Partition placement groups increase the availability of applications by placing hosts in different logical partitions that do not share the same underlying hardware. Partition placement groups automatically deploy hosts across as many different partitions as there are available within an AZ. Each partition within a placement group has its own set of racks, and each rack has its own network and power source. No two partitions within a placement group share the same racks, which allows for isolating host failures within an SDDC cluster.
