@r000t This is such shit. Licensing doubles when you’re hardware is advanced?? What difference does it cause VMWare?

@garrett From VMWare's perspective, it makes perfect sense. All other things being equal, a business upgrading a small cluster will need half the physical CPU nodes to get the same number of cores.

I also believe "save on per-CPU licensing costs" was a bullet point in EPYC marketing material.

In any case, there's no fucking reason to pay a penny for virtualization software.

@r000t @garrett Yeah, not anymore. Nevermind the quite robust other onprem offerings available now, plenty of those workloads can and should be in a cloud.
