VMware Aria Automation for Secure Clouds’s billing model is based on the usage count of cloud resources deployed. While we protect a large range of resources and workloads in your environment spanning compute, data, storage, IAM, etc., we focus our licensing model on compute and database resources as they’re the key for your infrastructure. As the platform expands to cover a greater breath of services, additional resources will be added to the licensed resources list. If you’re using any of the new services, you will see the resources and counts appear on the Usage Page beginning the first for the month at 12 AM GMT. These services will count towards your subscription.
Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM) is now Generally Available. Similar with cloud, VMware Aria Automation for Secure Clouds charges based on resources monitored. For KSPM, we are counting based on Kubernetes nodes. Unlike cloud, a Kubernetes node will be counted as FOUR billable resources. Rather than having multiple billable resources in a Kubernetes cluster, the Kubernetes node is intended to represent all the resources.
