VMware said earlier today it has made some minor changes to its NSX product's feature list to offer versions that won't set back customers quite as much as the full product, while at the same time increasing the price of the top version of the software.

Sold to companies that want to create SDN (software defined) data centres, NSX slips networking and security into the hypervisor. It first hit the reseller price list in mid-2014.

A full NSX license will set you back nearly US $6,000 per CPU socket, but the company has quietly added Standard and Advanced editions to its product page.

According to CRN, NSX Enterprise will now go out the door at $6,995 per CPU socket. Standard will cost $1,995 per CPU socket, while the Advanced version will cost $4,495 per CPU socket.

Advanced and Enterprise also get more license options, according to the company's website.

All three versions are available on a perpetual license. Advanced can also be licensed on a per-user basis “to align with virtual desktop deployments”, VMware said.

The Enterprise model adds a per-VM licensing option. The three-tier license offering goes into effect immediately.

VMware has had some competition lately with the likes of the Xen Project. It will be interesting to see how this product feature list and price hike for the higher-end versions bode with the IT community and enterprise customers. We'll keep you posted.
