Pricing and Cost Advice
Once you sign for the start kit implementation, you have to go all the way through to the implementation, even if you are experiences issues.If you compare the licensing and total cost of ACI, it's cheaper than NSX because of the licensing fees. If you are going for full NSX features it will be too expensive, especially the next-generation firewalling feature.We don't use all of the features but it's still worth the money.It's expensive but the product is very good. I have never found another partner like Cisco with a solution like this and with great support.A big company can automate it themselves or spend a lot of money and buy it.We have saved time on the provisioning and configuration.We used Cisco Professional Services for the deployment. They were outstanding, but very expensive.Price is always an issue.
