Pricing and Cost Advice
"The most valuable feature is the cost; it is a free product.""To subscribe to the paid version with support, it is approximately $6,000 per year.""There are free and paid versions. The free version is limited in features but not by time limit. The paid version has more features.""The licensing is straight forward based on usage and features.""While it is free for small networks, the pricing is high if your network grows past a certain size.""We migrated from VMware to XenCenter to cut costs.""This solution is open source, it's free.""Citrix is a good low-cost alternative to VMware, so if budgeting is an issue then I would recommend it."
