Pricing and Cost Advice
This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software.
