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 Pricing Prepay 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 with standard or flexible subscription option. If you choose standard 1-year or 3-year subscription option, you can choose to prepay upfront or pay monthly. To avail the new flexible subscription model, customers must purchase new flexible 1-year or 3-year term commitments, paid upfront. They will not be able to change previously purchased non-flexible 1-year or 3-year term commitments.

Each host is capable of running many VMware Virtual Machines (tens to hundreds depending on their compute, memory and storage requirements). Clusters can range from a minimum of 2 hosts up to a maximum of 16 hosts per cluster. A single VMware vCenter server is deployed per SDDC environment.
