Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our total cost of ownership (TCO) has decreased by 40 percent.""I am able to store two times more data than what I'm purchasing, which affects the way funds are being utilized.""Disk level encryption is already in the solution, but it is very costly. Its pricing should come down.""From an application standpoint, we have seen a lot of return investment on the speeds and responsiveness of the actual storage.""The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit.""Our TCO decreased significantly because we were paying maintenance on nine different arrays throughout the country. We've condensed those down to three arrays, and our maintenance fees from the IBM product dropped by over a half million dollars a year, saving us $500,000 USD.""Our TCO has increased by 15 to 18 percent.""Using NetApp, our total cost of ownership decreased by 17%."
