Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The only thing that I think we are paying for is the VMware licenses, but we are enterprise, so it is not horrible.""For three years, it is $60,000 for three nodes. It is quite pricey.""It's about $10,000 monthly.""We're paying $3,000-$4,000 a month.""It is not too expensive, but it is quite expensive for me.""It is expensive for this market. Everyone says that it is a very good product, but the only complaint is about the price."
