Memorandum
The attached resolution seeks authorization to renew VMware licensing while upgrading the product suite to the Enterprise Plus level with new VMware products (vRealize Operations).

This purchase seeks to provide added functionality to allow Information Technology to better manage and optimize the City's VMware computing infrastructure that hosts most City services. This also provides necessary maintenance and tech support through FY2021.

The City has already entered into a Product Sales and Service Projects Agreement with CDW Government LLC (dated May 8, 2018) and the terms of that Agreement will apply to the proposed transactions.
