Michael JohnSenior Database Administrator at a recruiting/HR firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We have a three-year contract. The cost was somewhere around $70-80,000 for the original deployment, which was about two years ago"
"I'm not sure what the exact price is, but it's a moderate amount. It's not too expensive."
"The licensing for this solution is based on subscription."
"We pay less than $1000 monthly in licensing fees. There are no additional costs."
"It is expensive for us. We are looking for something less expensive and thinking of migrating the whole system."
"It is reasonable."
"It is quite expensive. I would definitely recommend not using the pay-as-you-go model because this will just mean all your money will go to Microsoft. So, really make sure to control resource usage as much as possible."
"It's reasonably priced and when you compare it with other products in the cloud environment, it's cheaper."
