Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The product is low cost. It is very cool when we design it to using licensing based on post capacity.There may be an advantage to going with IBM in terms of pricing. They have a pay-as-you-grow policy, so there is no need to take one license for the entire datacenter. You can start with small licenses and then grow, and pay, as you use more.The different license models can give good benefits to the end customer.Regarding retro-compatibility of the product between versions, your data is always available and the ROI is unquestionable.The licensing is varied. If we have small environments (not many TB being managed) it is best to license by PVUs (depending on the number of cores of the machine). If we manage many TBs we look at licensing by capacity which allows us to use all the agents of the product.You need to put it in a PoC and test it out if you can.´╗┐We have spec'd out our build, and the cost of it can work quite easily today for our future needs.We have been at our size for a few years. We are not really looking to battle the licensing costs, as this is our primary system.
