Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing is good. We have not calculated what hyper-converged infrastructure has brought us but I think there has to be some lower cost for us, compared to the public cloud. Obviously, there would be a lower cost, probably by more than half.
We're paying $3,000-$4,000 a month.
It's about $10,000 monthly.
For three years, it is $60,000 for three nodes. It is quite pricey.
The only thing that I think we are paying for is the VMware licenses, but we are enterprise, so it is not horrible.
For the VMware licensing, it is approximately $10,000 a year.
The time savings on the administration side of things is huge. We had somebody who was dedicated pretty much full-time to hardware, and now, they spend about a quarter of their time a year on hardware-related issues.
Upfront costs seems high at first look, but after analyzing all the benefits of SimpliVity, we have come out ahead.
It has helped to reduce our VMware licensing costs due to host consolidation.
