Hi,

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.

We have a perpetual license, which is very important because it allows us to manage our costs, rather than having a monthly or yearly subscription. A yearly license is okay except that we consider software an asset, which means that we need a perpetual license. The price of the subscription should be cheaper. I would rather pay three-to-five times more for a perpetual license than pay for a subscription because the lifecycle will be between five and seven years. After seven years, we will try to look for another solution. If Citrix is still top-notch then we would update to the most recent version.

If I was going to look at this project again now, I would investigate the option of using virtual appliances rather then physical appliances. I don't know enough about this option, but I think it would have some cost and give better DR options.

As NetScaler is now, I find it quite pricey.

I don't have enough information on the pricing or what our company pays in order to discuss licensing in any great detail.

Licensing is good. I don't have any issues with the rationing of it. Pricing-wise, it is a little bit high compared to the other products which are the market right now. Because of the stability and availability of the product, I am fine with the price, but it's a little bit on the high side compared to the other products.
