We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The Nutanix platform came in a little more expensive than the Synergy."
"The solution has reduced our IT infrastructure costs because we have had to buy less services than we used to."
"In our whole environment, the cost is in the millions. On this particular chassis, the annual cost is 12 blades times approximately $40,000."
"The biggest cost is the VMware licensing."
"We do a biannual renewal. I know how much that renewal is, but I don't know how much it breaks down to be just Synergy, since we have our VMware, all of our physical equipment, etc. all rolled up into one renewal, which is a little over $300,000 every two years. However, only a subset of that is the Synergy product."
"There was at least about a 20 percent savings in cost over our purchase based on the purchase price of the compute modules themselves versus what we've had to pay before. It was significantly less."
"Synergy has lowered our total cost of ownership significantly. I would say ballpark around 25 percent, maybe more."
"We bought everything outright to start with. We don't do much consumption-based stuff."
