Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cloud is cloud. It's still expensive. Any good solution comes with a price tag. That's where we are looking to see how well we can manage our data in the cloud by trying to optimize the costs.""I know the licensing is a bit on the high-end. That's when we had to downsize our MetroCluster disks and just migrate to disks that were half used. We migrated into those just to reduce maintenance costs.""Cost is a big factor, because a lot of companies can't afford enterprise grade equipment all the time. They skimp where they can. I would recommend that they improve the cost.""Our licensing costs are folded into the hardware purchases and I have never differentiated between the two.""For NetApp it's about $20,000 for a single node and $30,000 for the HA.""Once we deploy the pay as you go model, we cannot convert this product as a BYOL model. This is a concern that we have.""They have a very good price which keeps our customers happy.""They give us a good price for CVO licenses. It is one of the reasons that we went with the product."

SpiderOak is a cloud-based data storage center where users can securely retrieve files from any device. The service is designed to keep data private while letting it be opened and synced across multiple computers and mobile devices. Its zero-knowledge policy assures the user that the information cannot be attained by unauthorized users, not even SpiderOak staff. SpiderOak cloud services are automatically backed up so changes and edits are immediately saved. Changes made to data can be synced in full or in part and can be shared with other users through SpiderOak, using their password protected ShareRooms. Users have the advantage of accessing data from any device within the SpiderOak network either by phone, tablet, or web browser. Lastly, data can be stored with SpiderOak from multiple operating systems _ Mac, Windows, and Linux _ in addition to storing data from external hard drives. The privacy guaranteed by SpiderOak means no one, even with server access, can read file or folder names. Unlike encryption keys stored with customer data, SpiderOak's passwords cannot be decrypted or recovered; no information about a user's unique encryption key is kept on file. SpiderOak has been used by numerous businesses for cloud secure data. A large multi-national organization used the cloud service to backup millions of desktops, including those with limited online connectivity. SpiderOak helped the organization maintain access to local files, work within local compliance requirements, and control potential data leaks.
