We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The FlexPod licensing can adjust to your purse, i.e. there are different levels available for businesses of all sizes."
"Cost is the primary factor behind why I would not give this product a perfect rating."
"It is not going to save you money, but that is not the point. The opportunity to stay competitive in the marketplace is not a cost."
"We have a lease for approximately $10,000 USD per month."
"We pay approximately $1,400 USD in total for between five-thousand and ten-thousand ports."
"It is not cheap, but there is a return on investment in time saved and efficiency."
"The solution has saved our customers' organization in terms of CapEx. E.g., with the cloud availability, it's turned into sort of a hybrid CapEx/OpEx model."
"The main return on investment would be that instead of having to refresh all of our desktop hardware we have been able to go reimage existing machines and use those as thin clients, then also purchase new thin clients rather than buying actual hardware. It also reduces the overhead of having our technicians deploy those systems and maintain them."
