Pricing and Cost Advice
"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. It comes to around $30,000.""I believe there is a yearly licensing fee of around $2000 - $5000. I don't think there are additional costs above that but it depends on the type of infrastructure you're booting."

Overview

VMware software-defined storage is a simple, yet intelligent, storage data center architecture that aligns with business and application demands—eliminating static, purpose-built and inefficient hardware with dynamic, agile and automated solutions.

Zadara is a complete enterprise storage solution because it has all the functionality you expect in enterprise storage — and so much more. It starts with our patented virtualization software running the same industry-leading storage you can buy from a legacy vendor. It’s OpEx, so you pay only for what you use. And it's fully managed by us 24/7. In other words, Zadara can do everything your legacy storage can do, just a whole lot cheaper and easier.

With the Zadara Storage universal solution, you can deploy storage of any data type (block, file, object), in any location (cloud, on-premise, hybrid - worldwide), and via any protocol (FC, iSCSI, iSER, NFS, CIFS, S3, Swift).
