We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain. Pricing is based on consumption base.
From a cost perspective, it is a very good solution because it doesn't need a lot of costs because it's only a matter of storage on the cloud. You don't need any license at all, and on the cloud, you only need bandwidth. Bandwidth utilization will have various calculations of bandwidth utilization or bandwidth utilization and storage. You don't need a license. There's only a subscription with Azure, that's it. Azure will calculate the bandwidth which you are utilizing and the storage. The worst thing at Azure is software allocations. That is not required, even in Azure, to implement a server or install backup software. From Azure itself, it's a matter of configuration. No need to have infrastructure. You don't need to have a server and install the software in the cloud. It's only a matter of some steps you need to follow. It's only a platform and a service.
This is an expensive solution because of the requirements for cloud-based storage. We are paying about $100,000 USD per year, just for a couple of servers.
This is an expensive solution in the Bangladesh marketplace.
In my opinion, the price should be a little lower to be more competitive with other software. It depends on the customer's environment and subscription.
The fees are a bit expensive. When clients see improvements and see a product out of the box, clients will not look at the price, but the price could be lower. Support payment works by the level of partnership and the number of shares. As a gold partner, we have more than 50 hours of support per year and this is more than enough. With the 50 hours, I get a one hour call. If I have a problem and I call, they have one hour to call me, and I have unlimited calls if I need them to call me after 24 hours or the next day. As gold partners, we generate the licenses for our clients and we pay monthly. Our clients pay annually or make two payments per year.
The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with.
The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.
