Pricing and Cost Advice
It's expensive. it's in the hundreds of thousands. It's beneficial, but at times, I feel compared to other vendors, we are paying a premium for the licensing that other vendors include.The price to performance ratio with NetApp is unmatched by any other vendor right now.The pricing is not a lot considering what you get and it bundles hardware and licensing.Comparing this solution to others it may seem expensive, but the price to performance for NetApp is greater.We would like it to be free.One of the reasons we like this solution is that all of the features are included with the one license.We don't like the cost. We would like to buy more.It definitely reduces costs because it simply takes less power to run these systems. While the SSDs don't take power, they are in general very big right now. So, the running cost has decreased for a lot of our customers.

The pricing is better than some of the competitors, such as Dell EMC.We paid about $80,000 for our permanent site licence.There are no licensing costs for this solution.We buy the arrays outright, so we don't pay anything on an ongoing monthly basis for licensing.Our hybrid solution could do with some more competitive pricing and more scaled-down deployments. Already, the smallest one is too much for us. We would flourish by having a smaller unit.If you don't go cheap, it is eventually worth it. However, the initial investment is high.It is a CAPEX investment. Over the anticipated lifespan, I would say the pricing is $10,000 a month.The price has room for improvement.
