Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It's a small cost per month compared to that one-time purchase. The big thing is if you get your one-time purchase wrong, then you are buying a lot more. With GreenLake, if we miss estimate (which with all the planning, you usually don't), we sign a piece of paper, and then they send more equipment in.""If you're used to buying HPE servers, it's less expensive than that. I don't really compare competitor servers because HPE has never given me any reason to look otherwise. However, if you get good pricing on HPE servers, you get better pricing on GreenLake.""Our first year costs were approximately $1.2 million instead of spending five to six million dollars.""If you are looking to turn some of your capital expense into operational expense, this allows you to do it. It is a good idea.""It is significantly less expensive than going to cloud for development... Our cost is approximately $25,000 a month.""Right now we're paying about $180,000 per year.""Pricing is based on usage plateaus. The more you use, the more you pay.""We have reduced a lot of our VMware licensing costs."

Today's dynamic business environment drives the need for immediate access to available capacity, whenever it is needed. Some organizations over-provision storage to satisfy projected capacity demands, but this increases upfront costs and diminishes returns on investment. In response, Dell Financial Services (DFS) offers Flex On Demand, allowing you to pay only for the technology you need - while providing access to ready buffer capacity - with payments that adjust up or down to match usage.

Flexible Capacity from HPE Pointnext offers on-demand capacity, combining the agility and economics of public cloud with the security and performance of on-premises IT. With advanced metering, customers pay monthly for actual capacity used, above a minimum commitment – by core, by terabyte, by virtual machine – with no up-front capital outlay. HPE provides a buffer of capacity on-premises and ready for use, which you pay for only when you start to use. Active capacity management ensures that the buffer is replenished before it runs out, so that you have the servers, storage, networking, and operating software that you need, and ensuring that you are ready to take on your next project or next customer. Flexible Capacity cuts overprovisioning – commonly as much as 50-60% of servers and storage – saving on IT cost, enabling faster time to value and eliminating the typical long purchasing cycle. And it includes support for your IT environment to simplify how you operate IT.
