VMware licence changes put users on upgrade treadmill


VMware memory Tax, Microsoft server 2016 core Tax. They are all as bad as each other. At least VMware rolled back on the memory tax debacle, I cant see Microsoft doing the same. How many people even understand that if they have more than 8 cores per CPU (pretty normal for Hypervisors hosts) that their upgrade path to Server 2016 is going to leave them with a licence deficit? Users running VMware vSphere Enterprise that want to deploy Windows Server 2016 are going to get hit by a double whammy
