Article update: We created a new website called MSCloudlicensing to help SPLA and CSP partners understand the different program options and use rights available to them. The site is designed to be a collaborative platform, which includes a forum to ask and answer licensing questions, document library, and licensing articles. It’s more in depth than a simple blog. Check it out, it’s free! www.mscloudlicensing.com
- Document Library: Easy to read whitepapers on licensing and best practices. What really happens in an audit? How are other service providers handling CSP and Azure? AWS licensing? https://mscloudlicensing.com/document-library/
• Forum: Experts always review and answer your licensing questions. https://mscloudlicensing.com/forum/
• Articles: Most of the splalicensing.com articles you are used to reading and many more on CSP, Azure, AWS, and other cloud providers.
Thought we would provide an update to the VCPP program for VMWare. The five point bundle in VCPP has been discontinued April 15, 2018. There is a 6 month grace period for current partners. Important dates:
April 15 2018 – End of availability for new providers
September 19, 2018 – End of general support for 5.5
October 31, 2018 – completely removed
How are you limiting new customers for 5.5 bundle?
Starting April usage reporting, the bundle will not be available for any new service providers. It’s also in the product use guide for VCPP. If you were already using it, have the signed contract, you can continue to use it for 6 months.
Hope this provide insight. Questions? Ask your VCCP reseller – SPLA man only knows SPLA and CSP 🙂
