Licensing is still proprietary which is one of the advantage of some Netapp devices to some of the storage systems.

It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support. Initially, we have a three-year support contract when we bought the system, but the subsequent renewal of maintenance was ridiculous. This is why we have not been too keen on NetApp.

When getting new hardware, always tell the account manager that you are also considering other brands. They will be forced to adjust the price lower.
