It is expensive for this market. Everyone says that it is a very good product, but the only complaint is about the price. The enterprises must evalute carefully what they want to do and how many people has tod do te job. A simple interface improve operational time View full review »

While at first clients always comment on the pricing being very high. However, once it's deployed, and they see how well it works, they don't complain. Therefore, I think it's quite fair. View full review »

Assistant Manager - IT & IS at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our solution is on a perpetual license. The pricing itself is okay. It's not too expensive. There's a bit of confusion around licensing. Initially, SimpliVity did not talk about licensing for the software. However, later on, when the customers tried to update it, then SimpliVity said that they would have to pay for the update. Ideally, HPE should be very transparent about pricing and the licensing of this particular solution. It's not right now. View full review »

While SimpliVity is not inexpensive, we found it was not significantly more expensive than the cost of buying equivalent host servers and equivalent SAN storage. HPE installed and configured the equipment as part of the purchase, so that was painless. View full review »

The hardware is expensive. For the same price, Cisco can provide more hardware specifications for us. The hardware costs are more of an issue than the licensing costs. View full review »
