We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"With other options, you need to buy a couple of different products to achieve the same outcome.""The pricing is good.""It consolidates a lot of our storage into one or two chassis, which makes money savings in our data center.""We have used the solution’s thin provisioning to add new applications without having to purchase additional storage. We use thin provisioning on all of our flash arrays at this point. It gives us the choice to be able to overprovision and take advantage of compression, compaction, and thin provisioning all at the same time. We can get more out of the purchases that we make.""I would like it to be a lot less expensive, but it's been a very good solution for us.""The price of the upgrading of the solution is high. I could buy a whole unit of All Flash FAS 300 with a shelf for around $285,000. Yet if I want to add one additional shelf, it'll cost me $275,000. So they want you to upgrade by replacing it. It's cheaper to buy a whole new unit than to just scale out. The upside is they last. AFF lasts us three or four years. So that's a good investment.""It definitely reduces costs because it simply takes less power to run these systems. While the SSDs don't take power, they are in general very big right now. So, the running cost has decreased for a lot of our customers.""We benefited from implementing all-flash by reducing our data center footprint. We took it from 30 racks to just over five. This is one of the biggest savings for us."

"We are paying for the licensing yearly.""We have seen tremendous ROI. It pays for itself 10 times over in the matter of four years.""Performance per dollar, when we looked at it, was the highest that we could get for what we needed.""We buy the arrays outright, so we don't pay anything on an ongoing monthly basis for licensing.""Our hybrid solution could do with some more competitive pricing and more scaled-down deployments. Already, the smallest one is too much for us. We would flourish by having a smaller unit.""If you don't go cheap, it is eventually worth it. However, the initial investment is high.""It is a CAPEX investment. Over the anticipated lifespan, I would say the pricing is $10,000 a month.""The price has room for improvement."
