Quotes From Members Comparing XenServer vs vSphere

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
VMware is costly versus other competitors but is still one of the market leaders and expanding now with partners like AWS.The product is worth what you pay for it. I definitely feel like I"m getting good value.Compared with other vendors’ products, the pricing of the license is slightly lower. The annual S&S price is very affordable.Start with the lowest and upgrade if, and only if, absolutely necessary.VMware is consistently expensive and their pricing arrogance is what will drive us and other customers away.Pricing needs to be competitive since Microsoft Hyper-V has come a long way; they are both around the same price range.Purchase only the cheaper solution with support. I don’t recommend high-end licenses.
