Quotes From Members Comparing RHEV vs. vSphere

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It saves us money because we don't have to buy as many physical servers.It is cost effective.We would like it to be affordable to use the manage services on the cloud, then let VMware manage it and have AWS a part of it. This would make the easier transition from on-premise to cloud and be of value.Flexible pricing would be nice. Some of the pricing models are fairly big.The pricing is too expensive. The reason why we implemented Hyper-V is because of the licensing costs. They are way too high.The business is able to gain in faster services because you are provisioning the ends more quickly due to templates. Thus, the provisioning is quite good.The licensing should be more competitive based on its price. There should be more features for the licensing that you own. Money is a factor, because our management is looking right now at its money. The most annoying thing is to tell people that I would like to continue using VMware, and have them argue the other solutions are free.It keeps together a lot of different environments, making it easier and faster to work. It definitely has a good turn around.
