SolidFire Pricing and License Cost

One thing I would advise people is regarding the price. This is a very important point here. When you go for being a gold partner, not as a customer, then you should get a better discount. And if you get a better discount from NetApp, then it can compete with any other solution. But here, it is really important to tell the customer what the total cost of ownership is, not just the starting point, because at the starting point, it's still a little bit expensive. But when you have a backend gold partnership, then you can tell NetApp, "Okay, NetApp I am competing for the cheaper solution." Then you can get extra discounts to sell the product. But then in parallel, you must inform the customer. If you want a Ferrari, you have to tell them that. You have to tell the customer, "Technically, it is very good." You have to convince your customer that if they want technical ability, agility, simplicity and real ease of management plus a lot of other things, then you have to pay for that. There's no free lunch at all. Somebody has to pay. View full review »

The pricing of the solution is fair and definitely competes in the marketplace. We have no monthly cost. We bought the product outright with all licensing included and have support with them for three years. View full review »

I can't comment on the price of the product because I only deal with it on a technical level. View full review »

The quality of service is unique. There's no one who does it like NetApp. Additionally, we can allow customers to do more with less while using this solution. View full review »
