HPE ConvergedSystem Pricing and License Cost

Pricing is good. We have not calculated what hyper-converged infrastructure has brought us but I think there has to be some lower cost for us, compared to the public cloud. Obviously, there would be a lower cost, probably by more than half. Regarding licensing, have the paperwork looked at by senior management and don't make any decisions until you have all of your corners covered. In the beginning, you might see that this thing has ears and a tail but you don't know if it's a mouse or an elephant. You need to try to have as much clarity on what the business needs are going to be because, later on, it's going to hurt to increase licensing or to understand how far they go, what their limitations are. Ask as many questions as you can, don't take things for granted. In the beginning, you need to give them a roadmap. If you don't give them a roadmap, if you don't ask for the right things, that's not on their side. View full review »
