One of the challenges we have with HyperFlex is that they have a subscription fee for the operating system that runs on it, and if I remember correctly, it costs approximately $15,000 USD per month.

My advice about the product is simply that it's not cheap. If you have budget limitations it is best to look elsewhere.

We currently have a perpetual license, which is kind of unlimited, so we don't have the normal licensing cost, yet.

It's roughly $30,000 per HyperFkex license, so that would be about $60,000 a year.

Our licensing is hybrid. We have all of our applications for billing and outage management through this.

Our licensing costs are large, but it is combined between all of the Cisco products that we have.

We have a 3-year contract with Cisco. The license is for three years also.

They are not the cheapest on the market. But there's an old saying I like to quote: "If you know that you are getting what you pay for, it's fine if it's expensive."

Here in Brazil, our point of view about the cost to implement or buy this kind of solution is that it is very expensive. It's very hard for almost all companies to buy even the small version of this solution. For me, this is the most negative point of the Cisco solution: the price and the licensing costs.

We negotiated with Cisco and we got some price benefit from that.

Initially HyperFlex was a little costly, it was higher, but Cisco wanted to get into our company, so they gave us a fair discount. We have also gone for another setup from Cisco, which we should soon receive, the vGPU. On this second purchase they were not able to give the same discount.

It's much more expensive than rack servers. It was an issue, but when you compare it to the number of people who were administrative assistants before, it's on the positive ROI side. It's much cheaper.

The product is expensive. Other solutions are cheaper.

Comparable solutions with switches, storage, and services are cheaper than HyperFlex. It should be cheaper.

The price is a bit high. It could be better, but the product is worth the cost.

I would like a clearer licensing model. It should explain a bit more what you receive if you buy the more expensive license rather than the standard one. This would probably help in a lot of cases.

Pricing is better if you buy more Cisco products.

Cisco is quite expensive but not in the initial first buy.
