We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We can't go without NSX, so it's invaluable from this perspective."
"The solution is very expensive."
"The licensing fees are expensive and we pay on a yearly basis."
"It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions."
"The price of this product is too high."
"This solution requires a licence."
"VMware NSX is expensive and everything is licensed. We have to pay for each individual feature."
"The price is based on the virtual desktop infrastructure(VDI) side and also is dependant on the size of the environment. The price is expensive and it could attract more purchasers in smaller organisations if it was reduced."
