This document compares the pricing of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops (RHEV) with the pricing of VMware View 5 for desktop virtualization. Both the RHEV for Desktops subscription pricing and the VMware View 5 license and support pricing are explained prior to the detailed pricing comparison for the use cases of 100 virtual desktops. As the analysis reveals, a RHEV for Desktops solution costs 75-80% less than VMware View 5 solution. Or, in other words, VMware can be more than five times more expensive. To focus on a true cost comparison, this analysis only considered the virtualization solution consisting of the hypervisor host and enterprise management system. Server hardware costs and virtual server operating system costs are not included since they would be identical for both solutions.
