We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

For three years, it is $60,000 for three nodes. It is quite pricey.
We signed a three-year contract.
We're paying $3,000-$4,000 a month.
I believe that we bought the solution through some reseller in Brazil.
It's about $10,000 monthly.
For the VMware licensing, it is approximately $10,000 a year.
The only thing that I think we are paying for is the VMware licenses, but we are enterprise, so it is not horrible.
While SimpliVity is not inexpensive, we found it was not significantly more expensive than the cost of buying equivalent host servers and equivalent SAN storage. HPE installed and configured the equipment as part of the purchase, so that was painless.
Upfront costs seems high at first look, but after analyzing all the benefits of SimpliVity, we have come out ahead.
