Effective Jan 25th, 2011
Purpose: The purpose of this policy document is to define Entitlements for customers who purchased VMware software as part of a product set (i.e., Acceleration Kits, which are grouping of individual products), and are on active Support and Subscription (SnS) contracts.
Scope: This policy applies to customers who have obtained VMware products via an Acceleration Kit purchase and wish to understand their product entitlements.
Author: The Policy is owned by VMware’s Pricing and Licensing group and supersedes all other policies pertaining to Acceleration Kit upgrades.
Policy: VMware sells software licenses as individual products (the smallest sold unit, typically Editions) and as product sets, which are a group of individual products (typically named Acceleration Kits).
Edition (Individual Product) Customers:
For customers who have an active SnS contract for individual products, your contract entitles you to updates and upgrades to future versions of your individual products. This is your individual product entitlement.
Acceleration Kit (Product Set) Customers
For customers who have an active SnS contract for Acceleration Kit product sets, your contract provides you entitlements to the individual products you acquired at the time of your Acceleration Kit product set purchase. This means your individual product entitlements do not change if VMware subsequently changes what is included in the Acceleration Kit product set:
Individual products are the smallest sold unit of software, typically named Editions. Product sets are a group of individual products, typically named Acceleration Kits.
Find the policies posted on the Support Policies >> page.
Acceleration Kit upgrade paths are pre-defined upgrade paths offered by VMware that allow a customer to upgrade an entire Acceleration Kit to a different Acceleration Kit. All the individual products in the “From” Acceleration Kit are upgraded to the products in the “To” Acceleration Kit.
