Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Pricing varies greatly between license and editions.They should lower the price. If they did they would fall into a more competitive market because the price does scare a lot of potential customers away when they get the quote.There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies.I don't feel that I am receiving the performance which I am paying for.Work close with your InfraTeam and discuss with Nutanix the best way to achieve sizing and price that are right for you.Licensing depends on the features needed.Extra features should not be so expensive. We would love to be able to use or even just try some of the extra features without having to buy them. Buying those features is just as expensive as buying vSphere licenses, so the cost savings is nullified.Setup cost is minor, pricing is quite a bit (we have a 7-node-cluster for about 450K EUR with 2 vGPU-nodes for Citrix) but that includes hardware, software, and support.
