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

I don't recall the cost of the product or the term life of the contracts. I'm not involved with handling the pricing of the solution.
The costs for Nutanix Era are subscription-based. It is very expensive. This is one of the reasons why it is not easy to deploy Nutanix as a reseller. This is especially true if clients have their own hyperware like Microsoft Hyper-V or VMWare and can compare the cost of those products. But the cost depends on the customers. When you compare Nutanix to VMWare, it is impossible to beat the price because the cost of Nutanix is very high. The pricing is something that should be lower. It is the Nutanix license itself that costs a lot. It is not the hardware, it is the software. The only thing which is stopping Nutanix from being a bigger player in the market is the price of the software. They have built a lot of complexity into the licensing as well. Sometimes costs are based on licensing of components, sometimes on the processor, sometimes on the cache, sometimes on the capacity. The licensing is too complex especially compared to something like VMware which is simple processor-based licensing. They have a single price and there is no flaw in the technology which suggests it is not as capable as the Nutanix product.
