vRealize Suite is available in three editions: Standard, Advanced and Enterprise. In addition, it is licensed using portable licensing, which allows customers to manage multi-vendor private and public clouds with common licensing.


Multi-cloud Portable Licensing

A Portable License Unit (PLU) gives you the flexibility to manage workloads regardless of whether they are on vSphere on-premises, third-party hypervisors, physical servers, or supported public clouds. There is no license switching or conversion required. 

One PLU allows usage of vRealize Suite to manage unlimited OSIs/VMs deployed on one on-premises vSphere CPU or one VMware Cloud on AWS CPU. Alternately, vRealize Suite can manage up to 15 OSIs deployed on (i) other supported public clouds, or (ii) third-party hypervisors and physical servers.
