Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
I think the cost should be reconsidered. VMware is not the cheapest solution out there, despite the fact that it may be one of the best.I did a comparison between physical server to virtual. There was a point in time where we would size out a virtual server to be a massive size, then we'd buy a physical server of the equivalence. We saved somewhere around 20 percent going virtual, as opposed to the physical equivalent.The pricing is justified. It may be a bit high, but the features are worth it.The pricing is competitive.In the past six months, we have saved around 110TBs of storage, which is almost equivalent to $200,000 USD. That is a huge savings.vSphere is an expensive solution.VSphere is an expensive solution.In today's market, agility is the new currency.
