Pricing and Cost Advice

ROI from an administrative perspective is clearly much better because I only have to deal with one user interface.I'd love for this product to be cheaper.The only problem I have with VMware is the price. It is a good product, but it is expensive.With vSAN, we didn't find the market that competitive.The vSAN is somewhat expensive to license.The vSAN licensing is not an inexpensive product. It does cost more than hypervisor.We did consider other hyperconverged solutions. It usually came down to price. vSan was the most cost effective thing.What made us go with this solution was price point. When you can utilize existing storage infrastructure, and not have to continually purchase new SAN products out there that are going up in price as time goes by, then it's a wonderful thing.
