Paid solutions will no longer be supported when the purchased license expires. Perpetual licenses are also no longer available for purchase, Broadcom announced in December 2023. Subscription support and renewal (SnS) for lifetime offers has been discontinued. Customers are now offered a subscription model.

Earlier this year, Broadcom removed the ability for VMware partners to enter into service contracts directly through the partner portal. Now these customers will be served by Broadcom. In total, 2 thousand accounts are registered on the portal. Subsequent attempts by partners to register transactions with VMware on this portal will be rejected.
