The license could be less expensive and we are on a perpetual license.

It's a costly product. The licenses may not be costly, but with every new development in their product, we need to purchase deployment services, and the deployment services are quite costly.

As a service provider, it gives us quite good leverage and flexibility to present our own pricing and create pricing policies, which is really good.

I can not tell you exactly how much it costs, but I know our bill is in the millions (rand) every month.

I can't remember what our setup costs were. I know we paid in VSPP points. Our contract covers other environments so it's not something I monitor.

It is better than other solutions out there when it comes to cost.

Compared to alternatives like Microsoft SPLA, this solution is on the expensive side. It's an expensive solution but it comes with its benefits for being pricey.

I would advise someone looking into this or a similar solution to get people who understand the technology and what you can do with it to get the program right the first time. You can make a lot of mistakes during the deployment. Get someone in there to help you if you don't understand the product 100 percent. I rated this solution an eight. I believe that everything has room for improvement and wouldn't give any solution a ten.

This solution is cheaper than other alternatives.

In terms of costs, I would say there is no comparison between this solution and alternatives. If you are in the market for VMware services, that's just what it is. You don't have any other product like this on the market.

vRealize Orchestrator is an expensive tool.
