Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The product is quite expensive and is among the most expensive for this type of solution.""A single socket costs you around US $6,000 for three years. At a minimum, you have a three load cluster for a medium or enterprise-scale company. It can get quite expensive because you're likely to need four to six sockets on the other side.
