SnapShot functionality itself is not licensed separately, so we can say that the cost is $0, or it's just included in the base price. You need a separate license (or license bundle) if you want additional functionality, for example, FlexClone (which is a read-write snapshot), or if you need to manage snapshots, for example, for backup purposes - in this case, you should purchase the additional software (SnapCenter or SnapManager). The cost of this functionality is not very high if you purchase it with the storage with the included license bundle. All-flash storages come with a flash bundle license which covers the most of features.

As far as their licensing costs, the licensing is paid on a yearly basis. The organization pays for the licensing based on the software and the capacity that they choose. Once the license expires, you can renew it for another year up to the time that the software is supported. As soon as the support ends for the software it is unavailable. You have to update the license and you need to re-purchase storage. Updating is really not an alternative anyway in a competitive market because technology is not stagnant. Technologies advance for many reasons and there are more capabilities available all the time. It is much better for the user if they make sure to keep tabs on the technological advancements.

We bought the license with the machine, so we put everything together and paid for a bundle.
