I can't say I am very happy with the cost of the EMC product because we also have got a Veritas product. The comparison is that the EMC Data Domain solution is more expensive than the Veritas and they have similar capabilities. We were satisfied at the time we made the purchase of the EMC product, but subsequently, we went in a different direction. We added another product because we decided the price was too high for the original solution and to continue to add licenses. We are running both environments now.

One thing that anyone considering this solution has to realize is that it is expensive. It is expensive for a reason, but it is expensive.

There are a lot of different models and each one has a different price. Some models require spending more on additional fees.

EMC is very expensive for small customers. For enterprise-level companies, like banks, it offers a good price.

In Naira it was about twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years. All that is needed now is the maintenance cost.

Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and the software.

I don't know the exact pricing, but I believe the solution is costly. You may also need to pay for extra features above the standard licensing.

Licensing is available under per TB storage rates. Another level of licensing is available on technical support. There is a third licensing tier that includes more features. They are expensive but not complicated, i.e. more for high-end users. Reliability needs more cost.
