Subscriptions allow you to save money by committing to buy a certain amount of capacity for a defined period. A subscription is not required to use VMware Cloud on AWS. Any usage of the service not covered by a subscription is charged at the on-demand rate for the region selected.

You can use your SPP fund to purchase a subscription. You would have agreed to the number of hosts, type of hosts, and term (1 year or 3 year subscription) during the sales process to determine the amount of SPP credit purchased.

Sales promotions discounts are applied to your fund after the first billing cycle.

Contact your Cloud Sales Specialist if you are uncertain of what your company committed to in terms of hosts under subscription.
