VMware ESX Server gets license management support from ManageSoft

Boston, Mass.-based enterprise software management vendor ManageSoft Corp. announced Wednesday its Enterprise Compliance Manager software will support VMware ESX Server.

The support is meant to alleviate software licensing concerns for customers who employ application and server virtualization.

The announcement is relevant given vendor’s application licensing rules have become increasingly complex, particularly in light of issues like how and when software is purchased, upgrades/downgrades, right of second use, and the variety of operating systems in use by companies.
