It is expensive in small environments, which could be better. The reason is the four terabyte minimum. A one terabyte minimum would be better, but it is what it is right now. I think it's needed that a Reserved Instance will come so you can pay upfront or in a monthly bill.

NetApp is a premium offering, so it's not a cheap product, but it is well-priced. It combines a couple of properties which customers like us are willing to pay. Could it be cheaper? Yes, but if you combine fully supported, fully managed, easily provisioned, scalable, and quick all in one product, it's a good selling point. You can ask a lot of money for all these. If you have a use case like we do, it's a perfect match. It's like the Porsche of storage solutions in the cloud. It is totally worth the cost. We have a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) contract with Microsoft. We are a reseller. Our offering is a all-inclusive one, so it's paid per user per month with a subscription. We have packaging starting from 10 users, then going up to unlimited. We have customers of many different sizes spanning from a small offices of 10 users up to enterprise customers with thousands of users. So, I couldn't tell. It is incorporated, so we don't charge our customers extra for using NetApp.

Our pricing has not been determined because we are still waiting on additional features.
