Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it.This licensing fees for this solution are merged with all of our HP annual costs, which in total are a couple hundred thousand dollars.We do not have any licensing fees.I would like it to be cheaper.The only licensing costs are around 3PAR in the form the OS itself. You pay at time of purchase. It is capacity-based, and you have annual maintenance that you pay.Our licensing cost are $32,000 annually.For the entire six node cluster and the two 7200 units plus the Brocade Fibre switches, we financed it through HPE Financial. It was $850,000. We leased that and paid it off in October of 2018.I have to renew support in October for the existing solution. That will cost me roughly $50,000 this year, which in the grand scheme of things, $50,000 is not that much compared to paying $850,000. However, it will be the last year that I'll be able to get direct support from HPE. Therefore, product has to be replaced in 2020.
