Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD).
The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution.
The pricing of the solution is high in comparison to other products on the market. For example, IBM and Symantec have less costly options.
The product is low cost. It is very cool when we design it to using licensing based on post capacity.
There may be an advantage to going with IBM in terms of pricing. They have a pay-as-you-grow policy, so there is no need to take one license for the entire datacenter. You can start with small licenses and then grow, and pay, as you use more.
The different license models can give good benefits to the end customer.
Regarding retro-compatibility of the product between versions, your data is always available and the ROI is unquestionable.
The licensing is varied. If we have small environments (not many TB being managed) it is best to license by PVUs (depending on the number of cores of the machine). If we manage many TBs we look at licensing by capacity which allows us to use all the agents of the product.
