Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
In addition to the standard licensing fees, there are fees for Azure, the VMs themselves and for data transfer.
The standard pricing is online. Pricing depends. If you're using the PayGo model, then it's just the normal costs on the Microsoft page. If you're using Bring Your Own License, which is what we're doing, then you get with your sales contact at NetApp and start figuring out what price is the best, in the end, for your company.
They allow a special price if you are working closely with them. Since we have a lot of NetApp systems, we got some kind of discount. That's something they do for other customers, not just for us. The price was fair. In addition to the licensing fees, you're paying Amazon for your usage...
The AWS consumer-based pricing model makes it easy for developers to use their credit cards to spin up virtual servers immediately.
Compared to other storage vendors, NetApp, is not always able to compete with their pricing. Yet, we acknowledge the ease of use ONTAP brings with the AWS integration.
The deal with the seller was acceptable; the pricing is reasonable.
We purchased the product directly from NetApp.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was good, but it was a test system, not a real purchase.
