Click the Pay Now button to go to the pricing page where you can compare license options, and purchase a subscription.
After you pay for the vRealize Operations Cloud service, your trial state changes to a subscription state. There is a maintenance window during which VMware upgrades your instance. You cannot access the vRealize Operations Cloud console during the maintenance window.

Billing for a full-time subscription is handled through VMware Cloud Services. Your billing cycle begins on the day of the month when you upgrade to a full-time subscription. For example, if you upgrade to a full-time subscription on the 15th of the month, your billing cycle runs from the 15th of the month through the 14th of the following month.
