We used to pay about $100,000-$120,000 US or somewhere around there. That was a bit cost-prohibitive for us to continue. You need to pay for both software licenses and software support, which was the IBM backline. There were two levels of support for software and software bots. We had hardware support, which was separate, and we had to proactively monitor service maintenance support as well.

The product is very expensive because PVU has to be calculated on maximun virtual cores and there is no difference between production and non-production environments.

The price of this product is higher than that of competitors.

There aren't any additional costs besides for the standard licensing.

The solution is very expensive compared to an open-source stack.
