New No-Term VSA Licensing Options & Adaptive Optimization

Recently, as most of you should know, there was a change in VSA licensing.  With the new "no term" licenses, it seems like Adaptive Optimization is included with the 4TB licenses when previously you needed 10TB or 50TB licenses in order to auto tier your data.

The quickspecs, found here: https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx%2Fc04111621.pdf , seem to indicate this with the line "Includes Adaptive Optimization feature" for all of the regular licenses.  Can someone confirm this... that AO/Auto tiering is now available with the new no term 4TB license?

This is indeed correct, VSA 4TB does support AO now...

Re: New No-Term VSA Licensing Options & Adaptive Optimization

Thanks Bart.

I found out this morning as well as I applied the new licenses for a customer.  At first, it looked like it wasn't the case (I.E. The licensed feature set updated itself except for the line for AO which explivitely stated Not Licensed, but about 4-5 second later that too updated to Licensed.
