The initial licensing is usually for two or three years. After that they can buy a yearly license.

It was approximately $70-80,000 when it was under support, but right now EMC has not been supporting this product for two years.

The system was sold on the premise that it was going to reduce man-hours and not require having to work with tape. I don't think it was a cost saving. Now with the cloud tier implemented, there are some long-term benefits, but I don't know if there was ever a cost benefit associated with it. It's just anytime you're having to have a dedicated internet connection or net for just simple tap operations, that's something that adds costs.

I'm not sure how to calculate the cost. It's a hard question to answer. I do know that we pay for support upfront for five years.

I'm not sure how to compare costs, however, I can say that based on what we're seeing we get very good deduplication rates with the data domain on the backend.

It was very expensive before, but after integrating it with Dell EMC Avamar Data Protection suite licensing, we are getting better discounts.

The client has directly bought this solution from another partner. I've been subcontracted for this. I don't know anything about the pricing.

The price of the product could be lower. It's actually probably one of the more expensive products, at least in the enterprise-class. Other technologies are cheaper, and other vendors are adding more features. Therefore, it's falling behind a bit in what other vendors are doing. They need to catch up.

This solution is less expensive than Veeam for us, although it depends on the customer because we get a great discount.

Licensing was generally on a per VM or terabyte basis. They changed their licensing model a couple of times and turned it into socket-based licensing, which is an improvement in their licensing model.

When it comes to competition the price is not what is important, it's not the problem.

The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.

I'm not sure, but perhaps the pricing could be done better at the moment.

We were lucky to receive the solution as part of a bundle. It was actually a relatively good price, but there are better solutions, like Veem. However, they can be expensive.
