Pricing and Cost Advice

As far as value is concerned, it has been essential to our environment. We have been able to deploy VMs quickly and the developers have their own sandbox, so they can spin up and destroy VMs at their own will.There is confusion between licensing levels. There are three different licensed versions of vRealize Automation, and there are different things which can happen in each of them.vRealize automation really should be a front door to the whole VMware suite of products.The solution has helped to increase infrastructure, agility, speed, and provisioning in the time to market.We have seen significant ROI. We used to have physical servers, it took 90 days to get a server, order it, buy it, and get it in. We have it down to 10 minutes, building a server with virtualization, and now that's too slow. So, we let the customer do it at their speed. Therefore, it is pretty much up in a couple of minutes and they have a server.Better pricing is always handy, but I feel it's at the right price point.I'm very interested in the integration with Puppet. However, my organization doesn't have the funding for something like Puppet right now. If VMware would integrate that feature set (Puppet) into vRA. That would be very awesome.From the customer perspective, the value was worth it.
