From today VMware started offering a new products bundle called Virtual Infrastructure Starter Kit.
It’s available in two versions (2 or 4 CPUs) and includes:
- 4 x Virtual Infrastructure Node aka VIN (ESX Server + VirtualCenter Agent + Virtual SMP + VMotion) for 2-4 CPUs (depending on your choice)
- 1 x Virtual Center Management Server
- 1 x P2V Assistant Starter Edition (25 migrations)
- 1 year Gold Support
The price of the Virtual Infrastructure Starter Kit will provide a large discount from the a la carte prices of its components: the 4 CPUs bundle priced around 44.000 Euros will provide a 17% discount, while the 2 CPUs bundle, priced around 22.000 Euros, will provide a 27% discount for Europe customers.
