This question already has an answer here:
With this option for instance;
VMware vSphere 4 Advanced for 1 processor (Max 12 cores per processor) + Gold (12x5) 1 Year Support
Does VMware want to say that you can use; You can only use it ona a server that has 1 CPU with 12 cores ? (actually I dont know any CPU that has 12 core, do you ?)
You can split those cores into CPU's for instance you can use this licence to control 6 physical hosts that has 1 CPU each and all of them are Dual Core ?
Also lets say that we bought the licence and that 1 year has finished. Do we need to buy a licence again or we need to buy licence if we want support ?
And also (I am really confused :/ ) what if our physical hosts has 2 CPU's ?
Also if we should buy a ESX licence for each of the hosts do we have to buy also a vSphere licence for that physical host ?
Thanks for your answers :)
