le pCC et les licences
20-01-11, 10:58
We've already talked a little about the different
software licenses on the pCC. We gave you some
information about it and then we took into
account your feedback, that we validated legally.

At the level of VMware and ESXi, the VM licenses must
be taken at OVH. They are rented monthly
without commitment. We'll calculate the max number of licenses
in the month that you had (the peak) and we'll invoice you
at the end of the month.

If you already have the licenses of VMware, they can not
be "re-used" in our infrastructure. In other words, you cannot
use your vSphere to connect with our hosts. You
must use our vSphere which is "personalized" for
the pCC and respects the security of the service.

Regarding all OS and software licenses that you
put on the VM, you are free on your choices. We're
talking about Linux, RedHat, Windows, Oracle, SQL Server
or Exchange.

Your choices are many:
-you have the licenses and you make sure
you can use them in an environment like
the pCC
-if you do not:
-you can sign up with companies that supply them
and register them yourself,
-if OVH offers a license that you are interested on, we
you can rent it to you and register it in the name of OVH

Regarding the concept of vCloud with vDC (virtual
datacenter), that is, you have an internal
vSphere and you're looking for a vDC to deploy your projects,
the FT (fault tolerance), the iSCSIv3, or pCCd (pCC
with a dedicated network - the "d" of pCCd) these features
will go out with the release late February of the pCC. We will
provide you with a six-month roadmap for the pCC before the release
of the pCC, which is scheduled for late next week (give or take a few days as a possibility).
