Pricing and Cost Advice
It's expensive. it's in the hundreds of thousands. It's beneficial, but at times, I feel compared to other vendors, we are paying a premium for the licensing that other vendors include.
The price to performance ratio with NetApp is unmatched by any other vendor right now.
The pricing is not a lot considering what you get and it bundles hardware and licensing.
Comparing this solution to others it may seem expensive, but the price to performance for NetApp is greater.
We would like it to be free.
One of the reasons we like this solution is that all of the features are included with the one license.
We don't like the cost. We would like to buy more.
It definitely reduces costs because it simply takes less power to run these systems. While the SSDs don't take power, they are in general very big right now. So, the running cost has decreased for a lot of our customers.
We hope that with the combination of both NVMe and SCM the next PowerMax will be much cheaper that the one which we acquired.
The cost is expensive. While VMAX now has good pricing, PowerMax is a little expensive.
From a general capital investment, it's one of the higher price points in the market. It depends on the size and software features that you would include in a system. So, the cost varies dramatically.
The cost has room for improvement.
It scales enormously, but it's expensive to do so.
Our costs are on a yearly basis.
Our costs for the product are three million.
From reclaiming data center space which is so tightly constrained these days, it will pay for itself in a short amount of time, which is fantastic. Anything we can do to get more out of our current physical data center space helps us a ton, and PowerMax has helped enable that.
