Nutanix Acropolis AOS Pricing and License Cost

Gerhard Joubert
IT Manager at Q4 Fuel
One of the major problems with IT in South Africa is that licensing fees are 14 times more expensive than anywhere in the world. This is due to the rand/dollar exchange rate. If I remember correctly, our licensing fee on the total setup was about R900,000. There are no additional costs. The only additional things we added to the system was Commvault for additional backup services for the cluster. View full review »

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. If they develop the interoperability then it would make it a ten. View full review »

The licensing cost is on a yearly basis. There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies. View full review »

The pricing from my experience is, unfortunately, a necessary evil, however, the initial setup cost could be a waste, depending on your comfort and skill level. I say comfort first because the setup is actually very easy and straightforward once you understand the foundation process. It would really depend on your experience and comfort moving to new infrastructures. View full review »

I don’t have any figures available at the moment. Nutanix is most attractive when comparing the full cost (TCO) including CAPEX and also OPEX. Regarding licensing, we most commonly sell the pro license which covers the vast majority of customer user cases. It is especially interesting to see the development of customers starting to see the included KVM based hypervisor (Acropolis) which results in significant cost savings for hypervisor licensing (e.g. vSphere or Hyper-V) depending on the customer use case.

Pricing varies greatly between license and editions. The license also changes in by number of users. So, it's a little difficult to calculate the license cost. View full review »
