Key Components of Google Cloud VMware Engine
We have already achieved surprising results, such as a 94% decrease in incidents in the apps hosted in the cloud, a 60% total infrastructure cost reduction compared with two years ago, and a 92% savings rate for storing historical data.
Migrating VMware environment was the best option for LIXIL to start leveraging Google Cloud Platform with speed. Thanks to Google Cloud VMware Engine and VMware HCX, we could accomplish it without downtime and with a minimal impact to the business.
Google Cloud VMware Engine is sold as part of the VMware Cloud Universal program. See the VMware Subscription Purchasing Program (SPP) for details.

Savings vs. On-Demand
|On Demand Pay for physical hosts by the hour. Billed in arrears.|
|1-year Subscription Pay for the physical hosts upfront or monthly.|
|3-year Subscription Pay for the physical hosts upfront or monthly.|
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.
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. If you choose a 1-year or 3-year subscription option, you can choose to prepay upfront or pay monthly.
