Pricing and Cost Advice
"Purchasing from the AWS Marketplace was easy. It was just point and click."
"It is pay-as-you-go, so it much cheaper than buying in the plants."
"Our individual release cycle has been quicker because the entire development and testing environment has been automated because of these virtual instances. It has aligned our development workflow. This is where we have seen the ROI increase."
"With the Cisco ASA, you do get what you pay for. What would really be awesome is to see Cisco blow out a real cheap version where you can use the sandbox, but leave it step-wise and go to another product relatively easily, like getting you hooked on candy."
"We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy."
"Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision."
"Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions."
