Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
ONTAP has helped our organization reduce its overall cost of storage (somewhere in the high millions).The price point is very competitive and inexpensive compared to what you receive from other vendors in the market.We receive the best support for a lower price point.There are two consumption methods: pay as you go and subscription. Pay as you go... is a little expensive but worth it.It helps us save money using compression and deduplication.With the duplication and compression, we have been about a one and half to two times savings since we are not running all-flash.We have seen ROI as we can fit a lot more storage in one rack.There are specific workloads where some vendors provide better value, but in general, NetApp has done a far better on price than other vendors.
