Complete Private Cloud Solution In One Cost Effective Offer

The Enrollment for Core Infrastructure (ECI) licensing program is the most cost-efficient way to obtain all the products you need to build your private cloud solutions. ECI offers two editions, differentiated only by virtualization rights:

  • Datacenter for highly virtualized environments
  • Standard for lightly or non-virtualized environments

And, because ECI offers per-processor licensing, it simplifies licensing, reduces the time and effort spent on compliance, and can make it easier to plan for license upgrades. Each license covers up to two physical processors―so ECI requires a 25 license minimum initial purchase.

Some other benefits of ECI include:

  • Management Server console software is include with Server MLs and Client MLs
  • Both editions all features to enable
  • Malware protection is included
