vRealize Suite Portable License Unit (PLU)

With a Portable License Unit (PLU), you can provision and manage workloads across vSphere and hybrid environments, including public and private cloud providers. A PLU is a single SKU that meters workloads in vSphere and hybrid environments, and supports CPU and virtual machine metrics. Each PLU licenses one CPU for an unlimited number of virtual machines or 15 operating system instances.

See VMware vRealize Suite and vCloud Suite Licensing, Pricing, and Packaging for details about PLUs.
