- CAPEX: Customers can purchase VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail using traditional CAPEX consumption models. This model requires an upfront payment.
- APEX Hybrid Cloud: VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail is the foundation for the APEX Hybrid Cloud. Customers can subscribe to instances designed for your workloads easily through the APEX Console—and get it deployed to their data center, co-location facility, and edge locations in as few as 14 days. With a simplified ordering process enabled by the APEX Console, users can pick instance types based on their workload requirements, capacity requirements, and subscription term. Available in the US and EMEA only.
- APEX Flex on Demand: A pay-per-use consumption model that enables customers to scale capacity up or down, with payments that rise and fall accordingly. Customers choose their baseline capacity, which they pay for at an agreed-upon rate each month, and their buffer capacity.
