But the complexity of licensing models, and the difficulty in precisely identifying which virtual machine (VM) has which application running at which time, can lead to spectacular license compliance issues.
If the VMs are enabled to move freely around a cluster, then very significant liabilities can accrue. For example, there are significant cost differences—up to 10x—between a physical server and a virtual machine that is part of a DRS-enabled cluster. And in a recent IDC report, one IT executive noted that for every $1M virtualization saved on hardware, their company spent $13M resolving software license compliance overages.
How can this happen? Different vendors treat different virtualization technologies differently regarding licensing, resulting in highly complex licensing scenarios.
