Pricing and Cost Advice

They can tout the functionality and cutting edge technology that they have, but that's where the price tag comes in. The cost is high, but I think as they grow their business and get more customers that it will probably go down a little bit.As far as the licensing costs, everything is included in the license.Our licensing fees are $500,000+ USD.With VMware, we pay $300,000 annually.We pay approximately $50,000 USD per year in licensing fees.With Pure Storage, we would like to continue seeing price reductions with flash storage. I don't think we're any different than anybody else when we continue to look to the industry for price reductions of both NVMe and traditional SSD storage. We would like to see these prices continue to decline and erode, even displacing large spinning disks.
